Jessica Walks at Her Wedding

Jessica Taylor-Bearman became ill with ME at the age of 15.  She was hospitalized for four years, unable to move, speak or eat, and experiencing isolation — as her family was only allowed to visit on Saturdays.

During that time, she kept a dictaphone clipped to her shirt that recorded the noises she made for water. She focused all her energy on speaking again so that she could better communicate her needs at the hospital. “I put every effort into speaking rather than moving, which is why it took me four years to move.”

Eventually, she began to painstakingly speak one sentence each day. Even then, she knew she eventually wanted to write a book.
