Remarkable Jul 26, 2005
Fiona Whelpton's story is amazing. Conversion syndrome is unknown to most people; read this book now to find out more about it. This book endeavours to raise awareness about this illness, and to ensure that people suffering from this illness do not feel alone in their suffering.
I was touched Jul 7, 2005
This is the touching story of a woman who suffers the Conversion Syndrome Disorder. It is a book full of hope and optimism in spite of the gravity of this syndrome which ends in a complete paralysis of the body.
The Cycle Path Mar 2, 2005
Being Fionas son i thought that the book was exeptional quality and really said what it's like having Conversion Syndrome Dissorder. I am so pleased that she had the courage to write such an exeptional book after all that she has been through Lots of love. Well Done
A cathartic semi autobiography Feb 14, 2005
A cathartic semi autobiography about a woman with conversion syndrome disorder. Life is extremely hard for Fiona Whelpton but her optimism always shines through. The book is hard hitting in parts describing the pains of mental illness, an abusive husband and having a domineering mother. Amidst all the chaos is a beautiful poetic voice desperate to get out. This book made me have more patience for people who find life difficult.
The book for everyone who has CSD Feb 14, 2005
Fiona Whelpton tells a story full of hope, optimism and promise. This is admirable considering the severe disability she faced. A single mum triumphing over disability, neglect and disempowerment. Poetic and romantic language keep the reader alive.
