All of a Piece

A Life with Multiple Sclerosis

For fourteen years, Barbara Webster suffered from multiple sclerosis undetected. Physicians and friends had considered her neurotic with her "imaginary" ailments. Here, Barbara describes the gradual process of accepting life with a chronic, potentially disabling disease. All of a Piece is an exploration of the emotional and psychological consequences of chronic disease and its experience within American culture.

Reviews

"This incredibly personal book deals with the attempts of a young multiple sclerosis (MS) patient to come to terms with her disease.. If you or someone you know has a chronic disease, wants to know more about the American culture of illness, or is an observer of the American scene, this is a must read book."

- American Anthropologist

"People with MS and other chronic, disabling diseases will share [Barbara Webster's] feelings and reations: she has written what many must feel but are unable to express...The book is thought-provoking and probing, and forces the reader to consider critically the lot of a large segment of our population today."
