Mick, Jane and Me, Living well with MS is a book written by Adelaide poet Carolyn Cordon. Mick and Jane are the names of her sticks. Carolyn writes:
When I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)/… I wanted to have a book like the one I’ve written here -/a book with the feelings, medicines, processes/ emotions and misunderstandings/ I had to work through/ to find a place of peace within.
Carolyn also created a blog to go with her memoir – click here.
For the book she wanted an illustration at the start of each chapter. Because the book has so much to say: Carolyn’s story, thoughts, ideas, and information, I ended up with many more illustrations than was needed.
Below are a few of the pictures. Together they do tell some of Carolyn’s story.
