Chronic Fatigue: I Was 'Held Hostage By ME'

Chronic fatigue: I was 'held hostage by ME'
Hi, my name is Lizzie and I'm known in my town as the girl who got ill.
You see, I was given that label when I was diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) aged 16.
I'd gone from a bright, bubbly girl to being exhausted and having my personality sucked out of me.
For those of you who don't know (and I'm guessing you don't, I certainly didn't) it's a horrible illness that makes you feel tired in a really extreme, abnormal way.
It's so much more than that too because you get digestive problems, headaches, nausea, muscle pains, spasms and you become sensitive to light and noise.
