This article is very interesting and highlights that M.E/CFS isn’t just ‘feeling a bit tired all the time’. It also shows there is light at the end of the tunnel for some sufferers. As we know some of us do recover from the illness, some have periods of remission then flare ups, some have it all the time but to varying degrees and some of us have it full on, unrelenting and constant.
I fall into the third category, but when I have ‘lighter’ M.E periods my other illnesses pick up the slack, which my neurologist says is typical of those of us who have other integrated illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, IBS etc..
So sadly her story isn’t typical (especially as she was a top athlete prior to the CFS hitting) is inspirational and goes further to prove the validity of the condition and how it can affect people.
Hope you find it as interesting as I do, whether your interest is M.E/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Cycling, Paralympics, or just sport in general.
