As I read through the life of Chris M. Tatevosian, his touching story struck a chord, sending chills up my spine. Immediately, I had a flashback of the past twenty years of a friendship
with a family that I wouldn't trade for the world. A Doctor that I had the honor of meeting
in New York, who had multiple sclerosis for many years, and directed a hospital for rehabilitation. His daughter, and I were best friends. At age twenty-five, she was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. As I became part of this family, and helped as much as I possibly could, I learned what this disease can do to everyone involved. Chris pours out his heart with unbelievable courage to tell the world about his mistakes, how you can still love life, and once again see the light at the end of the tunnel. The author tells the readers about his feelings, emotions, and experiences as multiple sclerosis progressively worsened. More important, he describes how a disability can not only destroy the person who has it, but everyone he comes in contact with. In many cases, the misery and anger felt by the person who is disabled is also felt by his caretakers, and loved ones. This memoir of tender feelings is heartfelt, funny, and uplifting. The story is enormously entertaining as we read about a life lived by a man who is filled with faith, and spirit. His encouraging words conveyed to the public to be there for the joy, the tears, and each other, will truly leave an afterthought in the mind of every reader. I recommend this book to everyone who had to deal with a disability of any kind, and to everyone who is married, or is engaged. Chris clearly defines the building blocks of marriage, why those blocks may begin to crumble, and how to prevent those blocks from falling. The trials and tribulations of Chris M. Tatevosian's life is an inspiration to us all.
"LIFE INTERRUPTED: IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT ME" is as heartwarming and emotional as
PATCH ADAMS with Robin Williams.
