Publisher's synopsis[edit | edit source]

(This synopsis was provided by the publisher for promotional purposes. For book reviews, please see Links section below.)

'I feel tired Mum ... really tired. I have a headache and I feel sick to my stomach.'

These simple words were the beginning of our five years of hell.

This book has been written for you: parents, siblings, grandparents, friends and carers of loved-ones with the debilitating condition, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome.

It sets out, in a very detailed and personal way, everything David and his mother endured during the years of his illness: endless tests, doctors, therapists, medications, alternative treatments; significant school issues, the loss of friends and social-standing and (the most soul-destroying aspect of all) the pervading disbelief that he was genuinely ill. It is a story of a mother's determination to do what was right for her son.
