Lucinda Allaway

A former Major in the Army, Lucinda has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) / ME. This means she has difficulty concentrating and needs to rest often, particularly after exercise. “Sometimes it is difficult to maintain a feeling of self-worth with CFS. There are very few things that I am able to do to my pre-illness standards and the reduction in ability levels is still hard to adjust to.”
