"If just one marriage is saved it will have been well worth literally making my life and open book"


Background Information

 

Chris Tatevosian grew up in Holliston, Massachusetts and graduated college in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and a minor in Chemistry. Employed as an analytical chemical technician for seven years before becoming an occupational safety coordinator/consultant. In 1980 he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Divorced with one stepson, Jesse, 22 who lives in Vermont, Tatevosian now lives in Massachusetts. He has since remarried. He and his wife Jane, Jane's two younger children, 19-year-old Mark and 23-year-old Lauren live in their new home in suburban Massachusetts.

Recently you may have read about Chris Tatevosian and this candid and humble self-help memoir he has written entitled Life Interrupted, It’s Not All about Me. 

 

In the book Chris shares with readers, his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and how his poor me attitude cost him his marriage. Chris hopes that others might learn from his relationship destroying mistakes to communicate more effectively and avoid allowing disability and feelings of decreasing self-worth to destroy one’s relationship.  The book has been featured in the MetroWest newspaper (Framingham MA) and other smaller, local papers as well as the web sites of numerous MS organizations such as,MSworld.org MSfocus and the MS foundation web sites. Chris, a member here at First Congregational Church of Hopkinton  (FCCH) has suffered from the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis for more than twenty-eight years. Back in 2005 Chris facilitated a class here at FCCH similarly called “Life Interrupted “, which like his book helps individuals deal with the stress put on a relationship as a result of a family member having a chronic illness or disability requiring another family member to function as the caregiver.

 

“A real person, speaking right from the heart, and it touched my heart.”

--Rick Mansfield, Caring Coordinator, The First Congregational Church of Hopkinton, Massachusetts

   

        Chronic illness doesn’t just wreak havoc on the body. It can make a person insecure and difficult to live with, and the ensuing self-pity can even destroy a marriage. Author Chris Tatevosian knows this firsthand. Life Interrupted-It’s Not All About Me is his stunning first-person account of his battle with multiple sclerosis, which slowly eroded his marriage. In clear, pitch-perfect prose, Tatevosian details how his “poor me” attitude, inabilities to face what was happening to him, and his overall difficulties with his disease tore apart what was a storybook marriage.

 An important chronicle of a terrible disease and a shattering portrait of a love gone wrong, Life Interrupted is still a very uplifting and helpful book. Tatevosian shares his strategies for coping and dealing with the disease, often treating conquering his illness like a game. He also offers helpful advice on how to manage the sometimes difficult emotions any chronic disorder can produce. Living with illness can be hard for everyone in a family, but as this brave and important book shows, with faith in God, hope and humor, life is still a wonmderful blessing.

 

 

“I was touched by the honesty of such a humble man, one who is courageous enough to let the world read about his struggles with his disability, and how God is using this experience to change his life and the lives of others.”-Sue Celluce, Special Needs educator.

Additional Information

Life Interrupted, It's Not All About Me by Chris Tatevosian Chris is the author of “ LIFE INTERUPTED, it's not all about me” a gripping heartwarming first-person account of his battle with multiple sclerosis (MS). Cut-and-paste the link below to view actual article with photos: http://hollistonreporter.com/?article=1133 He shares his early diagnosis, when he was a freshman in college, to the current stages of this progressive illness and his life in between. Chris has suffered a lot, persevered and lost a lot, and it is all in the book. He married the love of his life, and by his own admission, his poor me attitude destroyed the marriage. He authored this book to offer advice to others that are suffering with disabilities or hardships, whether as a patient or a care giver, and how to cope with emotions in these difficult circumstances. MS is a debilitating chronic progressive illness for which the medical word is trying to find a cure. Chris has endured years of drugs and therapy, and now has found relief and improvements in his life with a treatment called Bee Venom Therapy. This is a form of alternative medicine that involves being stung by honey bees. Chris began this therapy in July of 2003 with seven bee stings, which resulted in his right foot, that was cold and blue, returning to its normal pinkish skin tone. That was the beginning. As of January, 2007 Chris has had 12,310 live bee stings. This therapy is ongoing, and according to Chris, it has helped him tremendously. Although this book is intended to help others in similar situations, his heartwarming and tender advice is appropriate to all in loving relationships. Now the high school reunion story: Seven classmates of the 1979 graduating class came to the book signing to wish Chris well, and to share some of their own life experiences. Anne, my wife, and I enjoyed this mini class reunion, as our son David was a member of this class, but unfortunately geographically he was unable to attend. This unforgettable book is on sale at all bookstores nationwide. The book is from the publisher, Tatepublishing.com, Amazon.com, borders.com, barnesandnoble.com and most other online bookseller's. This book can also be purchased through my web site: www.lifeinterrupted-nolonger.com, where you'll find numerous reviews, radio interviews and articles written by the author, Chris Tatevosian.
