Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at a young age, author M. Tatevosian's Life Interrupted: It's Not All About Me describes how self-destructive and negative behaviors destroyed his marriage and left him with a poor-me attitude. In writing this deeply personal account, Tatevosian says in his introduction, "My hope is that you draw from (my experiences), identify similarities and avoid making the same relationship destroying mistakes (I did)."

In his candid and humble self-help memoir, Chris Tatevosian 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 web sites of numerous MS organizations such as,MSworld.org, MSfocus and the MS foundation web sites. Chris, a member 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 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.

Chris is also the co-host of a blogtalk radio program called "Winning life through pain" with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) coach Marla at 2 PM Eastern standard time on Tuesdays. The show is a call-in show for anyonesuffering from chronic illness.
