Chronic Progressive

Marion Deutsche Cohen

Chronic Progressive book cover


What is it like to be the well spouse of a man with multiple sclerosis, to care for someone who will not get better and whose chronic illness will progress into dementia? ... Much of this work feels like it was written in the hard blue light of 3 AM, letting us read the emotional weather of the journey, the way that only poetry can do.

Marion Cohen has never shied from honest talk.... For the long-term caregiving experience profoundly felt and rigorously observed, read Cohen.

Marion Cohen is a loving and literary advocate for a group that barely knows itself. She generously elucidates the lives of those who find themselves only on the giving end of a relationship, and provides a mirror to recognize losses and a door to step out of the shadow of the other's need and regain life.

Marion Cohen's compact words and spare description resonate well with the well spouse's efforts in the face of many challenges.
