MY LIFE IS WORTH LIVING!
by Carol M. Creasey
This often heartbreaking account by Carol, whose son, Paul, was born with many
difficulties, including autism, is told with the honesty and sincerity
necessary to portray the conflicting emotions faced by any family, and
particularly a mother, in such circumstances. The overbearing feelings of
guilt, failure and inadequacy have to be resolved to enable a happy life with
When multiple disabilities gradually begin to manifest themselves in Paul,
Carol learns how to deal with each trauma individually; discovering that a
sense of humour, along with the loyalty and care of her family, is essential,
as children with severe difficulties react very differently to others in
Despite everything, there is light at the end of the tunnel, as Paul’s bravery and courage to fight through illness and adversity, and become a happy
young man despite all his disabilities, make everything else seem to pale into
insignificance. If he could speak, he would surely say: “My life is worth living!”
Kent born author Carol M. Creasey originally wrote this book about her autistic
son in 1993. With four children to cope with, the book brilliantly reflects her struggles balancing a full family life and still giving her son the extra care he needed. Many years later, in her novel The Power of Love, Carol drew from these same experiences to write about the life of a young
1960s mother coping with an autistic son.
As well as looking after her family, Carol has had a career as a manager in
various china and glass merchandising establishments and also owned her own
shop. Writing has always remained an important part in Carol’s life, and since the original publication of My Life is Worth Living! she has published six novels, the latest of these being One Moment of Madness.
Other novels by Carol M. Creasey are: Evil Woman, Not Just an Affair and Evil Woman. . . Takes Revenge.
