9780857203335: Ghost Boy

In January 1988, aged twelve, Martin Pistorius fell inexplicably sick. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound, being cared for at centres for severely disabled children. What no-one knew is that while Martin's body remained unresponsive, his mind slowly woke up, yet he could tell no-one, a prisoner inside his own body. During this time, he suffered abuse of a kind that is barely imaginable, yet still he kept the spirit of hope alive. It wasn't until he was twenty-three that a gentle therapist realised he was alert to everything and, along with his parents, assisted his road to recovery. Since then, against all odds, he has fallen in love, married and moved to Essex and taught himself web design. Martin's extraordinary story is a deeply moving account of the power of love.

Descrizione libro Simon & Schuster, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. In January 1988, aged twelve, Martin Pistorius fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating; then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martins parents were told that an unknown degenerative disease had left him with the mind of a baby and he probably had less than two years to live. Martin went on to be cared for at centres for severely disabled children, a shell of the bright, vivacious boy he had once been. What no-one knew is that while Martins body remained unresponsive his mind slowly woke up, yet he could tell no-one; he was a prisoner inside a broken body. Then, in 1998, when Martin was twenty-three years old, an aromatherapy masseuse began treating him and sensed some part of him was alert. Experts were dismissive, but his parents persevered and soon realised their son was as intelligent as hed always been. With no memory of the time before his illness, Martin was a man-child reborn in a world he didnt know. He was still in a wheelchair and unable to speak, but he was brilliantly adept at computer technology. Since then, and against all odds, he has fallen in love, married and set up a design business which he runs from his home in [Url removed]t Boy is an incredible, deeply moving story of recovery and the power of love. Through Martins story we can know what it is like to be here and yet not here - unable to communicate yet feeling and understanding everything. Martins emergence from his darkness enables us to celebrate the human spirit and is a wake-up call to cherish our own lives. Paperback. Codice libro della libreria MM-44003638
