“I couldn’t see the reality of my situation. I couldn’t see that I was a traumatised bag of aching bones with a substance abuse problem, slumped heavily into the seat of a wheelchair, being rolled out of a hospital armed with an overflowing bag of pharmaceutical drugs.”
At the age of 31, Doug Wilson underwent a 14-hour operation to remove a life-threatening brain tumour. Just over a year later, he set a Guinness World Record by becoming the first person to run 7 competitive marathons on 7 continents in under 7 days.
In this gripping and fast-paced memoir, he shares the story of his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, mental illness and physical disability - and the extraordinary journey of healing that helped him to turn his life around.
