Along a Road of Acceptance
edited by FirstEditing.com
I am delighted with my book and with the editing provided by my personal editor, Marian. I enjoyed reading her comments and her explanations. When I was looking at your website and was able to chat with Kathy, I felt very comfortable and at ease, it was great to be able to ask questions knowing that I was going to receive answers immediately.
I was asked to write about living and coping with Usher syndrome and I feel that my book will help others with Usher syndrome. I have already got some orders from people who were aware that I was writing this book and I am looking forward to seeing it in print.
Thank you very much for what you have done to my book!
A short introduction
It was suggested that I should consider writing a booklet about my early years of coping with a dual sensory disability of hearing loss and sight loss. I have been hearing impaired since birth, thus I have grown up living with deafness, and the sight loss is due to Retinitis pigmentosa which developed during my teens. In my book, I have tried to describe my life and how I have moved from one identity to another as well as remaining essentially myself. My aim was to show that this has not all been a triumph or a tragedy but an ordinary happy life. Usher syndrome is the most common disease that affects both hearing and vision - it is a rare disease and there is no cure but research is being done to find a much needed cure.
