Clem Releases the Inspirational and Instructional M.D. and Me in Paperback

Margaret Clem announces the release of her latest book, "M.D. and Me, My Journey Out of Darkness". The book centers on the struggles and triumphs Clem has experienced as she battles macular degeneration. The book also features 100 useful tips for the sight-impaired to find greater ease in day to day tasks.

This book offers a valuable resource for people newly-diagnosed with M.D., or for their family and friends. Clem examines, the sometimes unexpected, emotional and physical hurdles that one might encounter when dealing with M.D.

Macular degeneration attacks the macula in the eye and leads to a slow and steady loss of vision until the patient is functionally blind. In the beginning stages of the disease, patients can often see well enough to do most daily tasks with only minor adjustments. As the disease progresses though, patients will have to make dramatic changes in some areas of their lives.

Clem also includes 100 clear and helpful tips to make adjustments for low-vision living. The tips cover all areas of life from shopping and handling money, to cooking and cleaning. These tips can help those with M.D. to live a more independent life.

The book is currently available through Clem's Etsy shop in paperback and will also soon be available in audiobook form.

Last Sunday, publisher Doris Wenzel (pictured right) hand delivered the first printed and bound copy of "Who Shot the Spatzies?" to author Margaret Clem (pictured left). The two reviewed the book in the town in which the story is set, Terre Haute, IN.
