Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I’m the guy in the picture; the lady is my wife. Seriously, have you ever known a woman with the first name of Kipling (or, for that matter, a guy with this first name)? My dad named me after the great author, Rudyard Kipling. I hated my name when I was growing up, and I didn’t embrace it until I was much older.

I live with ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. I’m a quadriplegic, tube fed, trached, and ventilator dependent. My eyes are the only things that move on my body. Therefore, I write using eye-gaze technology – it scans my eye movement allowing me to type into a computer.

A secret world exists just beneath the surface of our normal lives. A lot of people refuse to believe in this – they are content with their Monday through Friday, eight to five world. Not me. The hidden secrets everyone possesses, the real story behind the media version, and things that go bump in the night, this is the stuff I’m interested in and the subjects of which I write. Let me entertain you with my writing, because if my disease doesn’t scare the hell out of you, my stories will.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read book full of knowledge and inspriation.
By cristin mammarelli on February 6, 2018
This book draws on such a deep, personal experience of what it's like to live each day with a tracheostomy and ventilator. Kip Jackson's perspective is invaluable to anyone in the medical field and anyone facing decisions related to living with ALS. He wrote the entire book with his eyes through his speech devices. It's inspiriting, insightful and a tool that will be used for years to come.
