Michelle Cowan (pictured right) from Tamlaght has started a blog called Witshelly, having suffered from ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) since the age of 15.
The condition meant she lost her eyesight, the power in her hands and legs, her swallow and memories from before the illness.On her birthday six and a half years ago Michelle was hoisted out of bed for the first time and slowly recovered her swallow.
