The invisible woman

Beryl Clark

Undiagnosed mental health problems dogged Beryl's life since she was a teenager and caused her to feel invisible. When she eventually received a diagnosis, she was able to make a fresh start and discover hidden talents that restored her faith in herself. Her cloak of invisibility returns when she reaches the age of 60 and extends to her partner when he is diagnosed with cancer and dementia. Despite many setbacks, and with the help of a supportive psychologist, Beryl sets off on her travels and discovers her own strength, resourcefulness and resilience. Now, nearly 80, she looks forward to a brighter future.
