By Yvonne Decelis

Health & well-being, General non-fiction, Personal growth | Paperback, eBook


Yvonne Decelis goes over what life has been like living with Multiple Sclerosis & Fibromyalgia by going over her upbringing and life prior to, during and after diagnosis. She also covers things like medications, “healthful living”, and how she lives her daily life covering items pertaining to work, SSDI, friendships and relationships, etc. Mrs. Decelis also wrote It's Not as Bad as it Sounds for people seeking information on how to interact with others who have "invisible illnesses" like MS, Fibro, and other "invisible conditions".



Author Yvonne Decelis Yvonne Decelis graduated and received a BA in Gerontology at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Boston in December of 2012. She is now seeking her graduate degree in Masters of Aging Services at UMass Boston’s McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies. Yvonne’s “ultimate goal” is to be a Gerontologist who is directly involved in the management of programs that address Nutrition and/or Exercise for the elderly (and the disabled) population in an effort to teach them how to improve their quality of life with non-medicalized techniques whenever possible. From Yvonne: My interest in the field of aging and disability is almost lifelong. I have always felt that we do not always treat older adults and/or members of the “disabled community” with the respect and kindness they deserve and I am hoping to help change that. This is my story of what life has been like for me having Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia. In my book It's Not as Bad as it Sounds (my life with MS & Fibro), I go over what life has been like with these conditions, and I do this by going over my upbringing and my life prior to, during and after diagnosis. I have also written It's Not as Bad as it Sounds for people seeking information on how to interact with others who have "invisible illnesses" like MS and Fibro. As someone with health problems, I have discovered ways to improve my quality of life and I want to teach others how to do the same for themselves. In the spring of 2012 I became one of our schools first members of the Commonwealth Diversity and Research Fellowship Program. For this program I did a semester-long Fellowship at the Massachusetts Statehouse’s Department of Veteran Services. In addition, I received a letter in the summer notifying me that I made the Dean’s list for the work I did in the spring semester of 2012. It was a very nice surprise and rewarding for me, especially after working with and for students for so long. It was nice to be on the “other end” of things for a change! In addition to the work I have done as a student and an author, I am also a “Medicare Part D” specialist and will soon be a fully trained “SHINE” counselor (to help people with their Medicare plans). I am also an advocate for people with Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and Post Traumatic Stress Injuries. As of February of 2014 I have become a daily news editor for MSnewsChannel.
