Ghost Boy: The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped Inside His Own Body

They all thought he was gone. But he was alive and trapped inside his own body for ten years.

In January 1988 Martin Pistorius, aged twelve, fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating. Then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told an unknown degenerative disease left him with the mind of a baby and less than two years to live.

Martin was moved to care centers for severely disabled children. The stress and heartache shook his parents’ marriage and their family to the core. Their boy was gone. Or so they thought.

Ghost Boy is the heart-wrenching story of one boy’s return to life through the power of love and faith. In these pages, readers see a parent’s resilience, the consequences of misdiagnosis, abuse at the hands of cruel caretakers, and the unthinkable duration of Martin’s mental alertness betrayed by his lifeless body.

We also see a life reclaimed—a business created, a new love kindled—all from a wheelchair. Martin's emergence from his own darkness invites us to celebrate our own lives and fight for a better life for others.

Quando Eu Era Invisível (Em Portuguese do Brasil)
Até aos 12 anos, Martin Pistorius era um menino igual aos outros, feliz e saudável. Ninguém nunca imaginaria que um dia ele fosse adoecer gravemente e que, em pouco tempo, pararia de andar e falar. Para os médicos, Martin tinha entrado em estado vegetativo. Porém, lentamente, Martin começou a recuperar a consciência e a perceber tudo o que acontecia ao seu redor. Preso em seu próprio corpo, ele era incapaz de mostrar isso para a sua família e àqueles que cuidavam dele. Depois de 12 anos de encarceramento, Martin conheceu Virna, uma terapeuta que viu além do corpo preso a uma cadeira de rodas e que apenas movia os olhos. Ela conseguiu enxergar um ser humano na plena posse das suas faculdades mentais. Este foi apenas o princípio de um extraordinário renascimento e o primeiro impulso para que Martin despertasse, gradualmente, para a vida. De um menino que dependia completamente dos outros, Martin Pistorius transformou-se em um homem independente, que se formou na faculdade, conseguiu um emprego e casou com o amor da sua vida. A vida de Martin é uma surpreendente história real de superação que vai mexer com todas as suas emoções. Você vai torcer, chorar e reconhecer nele uma inspiradora força de vontade para realizar o impossível.

Als ich unsichtbar war: Die Welt aus der Sicht eines Jungen, der 11 Jahre als hirntot galt (German Edition)
Gefangen im eigenen Körper.

Martin ist zwölf, als ihn eine rätselhafte Krankheit befällt: Er verliert seine Sprache, die Kontrolle über seinen Körper, ist nach wenigen Monaten völlig hilflos. Die Ärzte sagen seinen Eltern, er werde für immer schwerstbehindert bleiben. Was niemand ahnte: Im Kokon seines Körpers verbirgt sich ein schrittweise erwachender Geist und eine zutiefst lebendige Seele.

Als Martin aufwacht, kann er nur mit den Augen Lebenszeichen geben. Eine Pflegerin erkennt schließlich, dass er sehr wohl bei Bewusstsein ist und alles um sich herum mitbekommt. Dann endlich erhält er die Hilfe, die er benötigt, um sich ganz ins Leben zurück zu kämpfen.

Martin Pistorius erzählt bewegend und absolut authentisch darüber, was ihn in den elf Jahren der Hilflosigkeit am Leben gehalten hat. Sein dramatisches Buch über seine Erfahrungen zeigt, dass mit der Unterstützung einer Familie, die nicht aufgibt und einem großen Lebenswillen sogar Wunder möglich sind.

Quand j'étais invisible (French Edition)
A douze ans, Martin tombe inexplicablement malade. Il devient totalement muet, incapable du moindre mouvement. Les médecins affirment alors que le cerveau de l’enfant est complètement détruit. En réalité, si le corps de Martin est inerte, son esprit fonctionne parfaitement. Littéralement prisonnier, il ne peut même pas cligner des yeux pour se manifester. Le pire, ce sont ces infirmières qui le traitent désormais comme une chose négligeable, alors qu’il est parfaitement conscient de ce qui se passe. Mais un jour, après onze années de cauchemar, un thérapeute entrevoit de la vie chez Martin. Grâce à des soins – enfin - adaptés, le jeune homme se « réveille » peu à peu à la vie, recommence à parler et à marcher. Un formidable combat, une extraordinaire renaissance. Le témoignage bouleversant d'un enfant prisonnier 11 années dans son propre corps.
