An intensely personal journey of anguish, solitude, and despair.
At 14, Georgia was on top of the world. Her life as a teenager was filled with hope and promise until a mysterious pain developed in her back and leg.
When doctors failed to help, she spiraled into hopelessness.
This book chronicles that dark period of her life, and follows her inspirational journey back to health and happiness More
As a young teenager, Georgia Huston had a wonderful life -- until a minor accident put her on a path to agonizing chronic pain that doctors were unable to diagnose.
As the pain escalated and medical specialists were baffled, her life deteriorated -- leading to panic attacks, migraines, passing out, seizures, periods of paralysis, and total withdrawal from the world.
She endured test after test, X-rays, MRI's, nerve tests, brain scans, and multiple incorrect diagnoses, mind-numbing drugs, and failed therapies until she even lived in a full body cast. But this isn't a book about medical matters.
Georgia reveals the inner workings of a tortured young mind that is losing everything. Her candid view of despair and hopelessness takes teenage angst to a level of revelation that includes panic, hallucinations, and hysteria, but ultimately finds help from an unorthodox pain specialist. Georgia's doubts and fears are confronted by a medically supervised program of alternative therapies. This tortured story reflects the worst of teenage life and insecurities, but underneath it all is a message of hope.
The truthfulness of Georgia's confessions and the success of her journey have touched pain victims of all ages.
