by Carole Mackie with Sue Brattle
Carol's story is a triumphant message of affirmation: proof that life with MS can still be fun, fulfilling and challenging in the most positive way.
Multiple sclerosis is a baffling and mysterious illness. It affects an estimated 2.5 million people worldwide. For those with MS the illness is a shadow they live with every day of their lives. What is often forgotten is how it affects the people around them: sometimes it is difficult to understand an illness one can't see. For people with MS, their families and friends, Carole's story is encouraging and enlightening.
The impact of being diagnosed with MS is very hard for other people to grasp. Carole Mackie experienced both disappointment and good fortune in this respect. If there is someone in your life who is affected by multiple sclerosis whether it is someone you work with or care for, a neighbour, friend or employee you must read Me and my Shadow.
Carole tells her story with disarming honesty and directness. She faced setbacks and heartbreak and the struggle to overcome these often demanded all her strength and sometimes exhausted it. Her story will move you to tears.
