“Margaret speaks with conviction and wisdom about pain and healing. Her strength about this topic comes from both her personal experience of living with fatigue and pain along with her professional experience as a psychologist. Her story and her message are inspirational and profound. Margaret has chosen to pass on her insights to others, offering hope and healing to many who live with pain.”

“This book is a wonderful companion to have, for those of us on the journey with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. Marg tells her story with great warmth and wisdom. It is easy to read and many of her stories I was able to relate to immediately. I felt instantly better knowing that I wasn’t alone! Marg also provides a detailed account of the many treatments that she has tried in order to alleviate her pain and suffering. I found this a most useful tool as I was able to compare her experiences with those treatments that I had tried and also find out what other possible treatments are out there. Through this book I have been introduced to the marvellous technique of EFT. I have found the benefits to be amazing. I would highly recommend this book to any sufferer or person who wishes to understand the suffering of someone with Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia.”

“Margaret Lambert, in Longing to Live, does a superb job of illuminating the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual facets and challenges faced by individuals struggling to learn how to live with a chronic illness. This is a book I would recommend to family, friends, counselors and clergy to help them to “see” the tremendous daily struggle it often is for one desperately “longing to live” through a debilitating “invisible” disease of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia (CFS/FM). As a fellow sufferer of CFS/FM, Longing to Live provided much needed validation and encouragement in supporting me through my own journey into debilitation, isolation and depression. I closed the last pages with a greater sense of peace and hope for recovery, and many reflections to encourage me to not give up when the path is particularly rocky. Thank you Margaret for sharing with courage and compassion, for self and others, an honest and real look into the life of someone living with CFS/FM.”
