This is not a book that offers solutions, although there are some useful tips along the way. It is a selection of notes, observations and poetry about a journey. It does achieve what the author intends, which is to reassure those who have ME and to validate their experiences. The writing is clear and easy to read, the chapters are short, usefully mapping the concentration span of sufferers.

Personally I think the book has another function. It should be required reading for families and friends of those affected. It is not self-pitying, though self-pity is more than justified. It sets out clearly what it is like to live with this illness from day to day and should foster real understanding. (My impression was it must be like living under triple gravity while being tormented by devils with pitchforks.) In particular it should be required reading for ATOS. I was disgusted by their grossly reductionist, inflexible and inhumane approach to Gina's work capability assessment.

It is also a book about hard-earned wisdom. When life becomes limited in scope or duration by illness, it brings the realisation that pleasure is relative. How many of us take time to be grateful for generally functioning minds and bodies?

Gina writes truthfully about her ME. I feel that it can be read at different levels. There is plenty of info to raise awareness of ME, I read it as an ME sufferer and read it in much greater depth. It was great to find someone else is going through the same.
I borrowed the kindle version from the library and was so inspired I purchased the paperback!

I love this book! Altjugh written by someone who has ME Many many of the writings also appeal to others who suffer from Chronic Illnesses and Chronic Pain... This book lets others know there is a life outside pain, there is hope for those in pain, and hopefully it will encourage others to do the same during their Journey. Wonderful Gina!
