Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an often misunderstood disease.

Linley Frame was hospitalised in 1996 but it took until 1997 for her to be diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

An Olympic swimmer who won gold medal in the 100 metre breastroke at the 1991 Fina World Championships, the disease ended her career.

Lindy Burns talks to Linley about her swimming career, her diagnosis and learning to manage her disease.
