AsiaMed interviewed HealthCentral Experts, Diane Bayer and Dr. Cindy Haines for their monthly newsletter, AsiaLink. Author of Embracing Autism, Ms. Diane Bayer who has been living with MS shares her experiences dealing coping with her condition and depression. While Dr. Cindy Haines, Managing Editor of HealthDay’s Physician Briefing and President of Haines Medical Communications shares how healthcare institutions can develop a model to help patients with depression.
The article focuses on support systems and the strength that people pull from them. When the support is not there, how does a person get back on their feet again.
“In this issue, we learn how depression when unchecked, affects a patient’s ability to cope with chronic
conditions and explore a healthcare model for healthcare institutions to adopt for patients in depression. Plus a unique look at how a mother with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) copes with her depression through her writing and had her book ‘Embracing Autism’ published.”
