In her first collection of essays, author Dean Kramer shares the victories and failures of day-to-day life with multiple sclerosis. At her home in rural Pennsylvania Kramer faces unexpected dilemmas, including choosing which shoes to wear when the choice can no longer be based on looks -- yet you are not ready to dress like the elderly neighbor, and what to do when your scooter disrupts a hornets nest and running away isn't an option. With beauty and joy, laughter and tears, Kramer lets readers experience life through her eyes.. Many books convey the struggles of living with a life-changing disability. But "Life on Cripple Creek" goes further to show that with inner strength and a sense of humor the intrinsic land mines one encounters with this disease need not be devastating.
