Evening Times - - NEWS -

A WOMAN left need­ing a wheel­chair as a re­sult of myal­gic en­cephalomyeli­tis (ME) has made a plea for more fund­ing and re­search into the con­di­tion, which she said “turns fit and ac­tive peo­ple into ghosts”.

Emma Shorter made the com­ments as she brought a pe­ti­tion to Holy­rood, call­ing on min­is­ters to re­view the level of sup­port for ME pa­tients.
