Story


As some of you will know I suffer from a chronic illness called M.E. a neurological illness that has dramatically changed my life since 2005. I went from a healthy active 12 year old to being almost bed bound for the best part of 4 years. I then saw significant improvement in my health, I wasn't back to being healthy by any stretch but I could lead something resembling a normal life. Sadly I suffered a relapse in 2011 and despite some improvements since then I've also had more relapses meaning I'm now mostly housebound.

This year I am joining Team Princess and taking part in The Princesses
and M.E event, a group of M.E patients and supporters that are becoming Princesses on May 12th. In the hope of raising awareness of M.E and fundraise for the charities that do such a great job in supporting patients and those close to them.

Our ultimate fairy tale would be finding a cure for this villain of an
illness that has locked us away from the world. Or even a magic potion
that was an effective treatment. That would be an absolute dream come
true.
