Choices and Reality




Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain


George wrote about his choice to not continue living with a fast progressing and debilitating case of MS.  Each person must make their own decision as to how to live or die.

Must read novel that I discovered recently.  Hard to read because of George's experiences, but really presents his case and others in clear, logical language.  Wonderful story of a family and dealing with a beloved father with MS.  Viewpoint from the 14 year old daughter and later as an adult.  Lots of issues delved into. Not necessarily a "feel good" story, but much of the reality of family dynamics in having a loved one with deterioration from MS.

Because it touched me deeply, I must recommend it to all who wonder "what if"?
