Well written and Moving,
This review is from: One Last Goodbye: Sometimes only a mother's love can help end the pain (Paperback)
This is a well written and moving book.
I have been ill for many years with M.E, (though less severe than Lynn) yet I found more help in coping with this illness than in some "practical" guides to M.E. For example it explained the various ways the family coped with Lynn being bedbound like how her mother bought her a hamster to stroke and reorintated a small computer that could be used in bed.
The medical profession's neglect and abuse of Lynn was horrfying, yet reading about it gave me some comfort as I also went through a similar ordeal with doctor's neglect. I felt less alone after reading the book.
This is an important book because it is the first mass published book on a severe case of M.E that tells the story in a narrative. This is a big landmark when you consider how common M.E is (more cases than AIDS or M.S) and how neglected it is as a medical subject.
