The home team of Muriel and Ali

Muriel is Steve’s other half and Jenni and Ali’s mum. She is a long term ME sufferer but manages it fairly well and has held down many teaching jobs as well as getting a PhD a few years back.

Ali in Edinburgh, May 2017

Alister¬†(Ali) is 19 and has had chronic severe ME since he was 15. An enthusiastic footballer, and former goalkeeper in the local junior team, he got ill in August 2013.¬† Here he’s on a rare trip out of his house to the very nearby coffee shop to celebrate Jenni’s end of term.¬† As you can tell, Ali is not best pleased about being in the limelight.
