Chris Tatevosian, is the author of Life Interrupted-It's Not All About Me. While in college in Vermont, in 1980, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. He affirms the pivotal event that led him to write the book involved the aftermath of a bitter divorce, and his need to share his experience of living with MS with others.
"My divorce was bitter and my ex-wife’s lawyer embellished so much, that I wanted friends and family to know the truth. That’s when God intervened and helped me to realize that He was allowing me to write a book to help not one, but perhaps millions of people around the world who may be undergoing a similar situation. A situation of overwhelming gloom, lack of purpose, and loneliness," he said.
He also said writing the book appeared to be somewhat of a human miracle.
"I am severely disabled as a result of my MS and the physical and mental acts of writing a book were surely impossible. Understand, I am legally blind.I have limited use and control of my hands and fingers and I suffer with severe cognitive issues," he said.
A deeply religious man, who also speaks at local churches, libraries, and health care settings, he's convinced that a higher power had a hand in the success of his book.
"You can't tell me that God wasn't invoked. I have been sharing the good news of Christ via my book and testimony at churches, prayer breakfast, hospitals, health clinics, libraries, coffee houses, bookstores and more. Anywhere people will listen-- response,and interest has been fantastic. The more discussions I facilitate,and numerous support groups with which I meet, the more shocked I become at the prevalence of this problem . The problem related to and resulting from the stress and hardships introduced to one's relationships as a result of life being interrupted by chronic illness or disability. my My book Life Interrupted, It's Not All about Me has been featured by evangelist Rhonda White on the Eagle Network's Authors and Speakers of Excellence web site where it was featured as June's book of the month," he said.
