The pebbles on the beach that get tossed the highest by the waves become the smoothest and most beautiful of them all!
Hi. My name is Luca and I have Chronic Fatigue. My Mum had it a while ago and got herself better. Now she is helping me to get better and this is my story. I think that having Chronic Fatigue is a bit like playing snakes and ladders. When you start the game you climb up a small ladder and slide down small snakes. As you get further on the ladders get longer but so do the snakes. But you have to keep getting back up, fill yourself with good things and climb the ladder again.One day I think those naughty snakes won’t be able to get me any more!
Mum would like to say:
“When we are not well it is easy to lose touch with ourselves and become invisible to the outside world. By feeling our feelings, learning how to keep our love tank up, embracing the world through our senses, charting our progress and enjoying our creativity we give ourselves the best opportunity to heal.”
“I recently bought this book and I found it very inspirational and felt quite emotional after finishing it. It was a very interesting and thought provoking read – and was worded really nicely. Luca is a very brave little boy and is so caring and I hope that other people will read this book too and realise how difficult this condition is and the wonderful ways you can learn to cope using your own creativity.” Lisa Raison
