Sarah Elsby has begun her impressive walking challenge in support of her mother who has M.E. Please donate and help the ME Association do more for this vulnerable community.
“I try to walk a mile a day. There are some days that my legs and brain don’t quite connect. That’s when it becomes quite interesting!”
M.E. changed his mum from “being called Tigger because she was always so full of life” to someone who now has to count every ounce of energy used in case it runs out and leaves her floored for days.
“It is incredible how strong she has been. I don’t think I would have coped with what Dee has experienced. She is my inspiration to keep on going and to support her on this journey.”
Sarah Freeman has not been daunted by the coronavirus. She’s simply delayed her inspiring attempt at Ben Nevis until next year.
Cognitive symptoms are common for everyone who has M.E., but it is the cognitive fatigue which disables me the most.
