About Mac and Me
Hi, my name is Pepi Noble and my eye condition is known as Age-Related Macular Degeneration, a deteriorating disease of the center of the vision field called the macula. Diagnosed when I was 50 years old, I’ve had many years to learn about this insidious condition. I’ve had up days, down days and inside out days. Eighteen years later I’ve come to realize each day is a gift and I can treasure what I do have.
Now it’s time to tell my story so that other folks with this condition can take heart and live fine and productive lives. It takes time and courage – Mac Degen is highly complicated and people have different experiences and symptoms. It’s also difficult for friends and family to understand what you can and CAN’T see.
I will share tips, ideas, thoughts, and challenges. I will share rewarding and difficult experiences and I will open my heart to everyone touched by macular degeneration.
