A few years ago we published a review of the book This Too Will Pass by Dr Civil Mills of Pretoria, who was left paralysed by a motor car accident in 2000.
He developed what he called a locked-in syndrome, a condition in which an individual is fully conscious yet all the body’s voluntary muscles are completely paralysed.
In spite of this he eventually obtained technology that made it possible for him to type his life story.
- Ghost Boy: My Escape from a Life Locked Inside My Own Body by Martin Pistorius and Megan Lloyd Davies
