MANCHESTER- Ann Romney spent Thursday evening in Manchester autographing copies of her new book, "In This Together: My Story."
In the book, the former First Lady of Massachusetts speaks openly about her battle with multiple sclerosis.
"I thought my life was over, and I was pretty depressed after my diagnosis," said Romney. "It's sort of my journey through that and I'm very honest in the book and really lay it out there."
The mother of five and grandmother of 23 has lived with the disease for nearly 20 years. She is now in remission.
"At the end of the day I've come through it and because of that I've learned and I'm here then to give hope for those that are suffering."
She says her husband, former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, played a critical role in the writing of the book.
"He actually was my editor. He was great. He's such a good writer."
The husband and wife are now stepping off the campaign trail to share a different part of their journey.
"We should all be in this together and have more sympathy for one another and be there for one another" Romney said.
All proceeds from the book will go to the Ann Romney Center to help with research for neurologic diseases.
