    REVIEW Blindsided Lifting a Life Above Illness A Reluctant Memoir 107 Blindsided Lifting a Life Above Illness A Reluctant MemoirI had avoided reading this book for so long for obvious reasons I was afraid to After seeing him speak with Meredith a couple of monthes ago at an MS luncheon I felt the time had come I cannot even begin to express how incredible this book was for me I felt that he was inside my brain expressing every thought and feeling I too have had over these past 5 years I will beg my family to read this book to gain a little insight into why I am the way I am I guess these are traits we share and are not uniue to myself I especially identified with the chapter where he spoke about the cognition problems the chapter about the children and the final chapter about hims

    REVIEW Blindsided Lifting a Life Above Illness A Reluctant Memoir 107 Blindsided Lifting a Life Above Illness A Reluctant MemoirI wanted to like this book because as a physical therapist I've worked with so many people with MS and because I admire Meredith Viera so much The first part of the book was interesting sad and inspiring but then Cohen just kept repeating himself in different ways By the end of the book I was screaming at him to just deal with it Dealing with any chronic disease is difficult and dealing with cancer twice on top of that made his life even difficult But wishing for a normal life doesn't make the life you have any easier I hate to say that when this book finally ended I was glad
