The Monster Living Within – Understanding Multiple Sclerosis
‘The Monster Living Within’ is not shrouded in medical lingo. It is an account of Jackie’s experiences with the illness and clear definitions and explanations of it’s manifestations. Detailing the 20 symptoms, the book describes each symptom followed by the manner in which each symptom has uniquely affected her.
“In order for your life to be great, you must first learn to appreciate it.”
What happens when you are told you have a chronic illness? This is the story of my journey after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
This book is about overcoming challenges, continuing to be grateful, and remaining as positive as possible. It also aims to help family, friends and colleagues of MS sufferers recognise and understand the symptoms and often overwhelming challenges that MS sufferers undergo daily.
