“M.E. is a stealthy thief; it creeps into your life and steals whatever it can. It has stolen a wife, a mummy, and a strong and independent woman.”
Ian Lazonby was a vet and a lawyer before glandular fever as an adult led to M.E. He talks about his experience with the condition, how he has recovered to an extent, and has accepted M.E.
“I hope that one day I will be able to use my lost years to help others by raising awareness of the plight of those living with M.E.”
“Without doubt my biggest regret has been that I have not been able to have my own family.”
“My husband has taken on housework, shopping, cooking and the garden so is effectively my carer.”
