Emma Greener, Beverley

I have been ill since 1998, when I went from being a 30 year old marathon runner to having 12 long years virtually bed-bound, being told I had ME by NHS. Despite finally improving after a private diagnosis of Lyme and the resultant treatment, my GP still doesn’t believe I have Lyme and won’t treat me. My biggest sadness is that I’m still not well enough to have children and at 44 years old now, I never will.
