AS an MP, I am continuously learning. Every week constituents come to me with a range of problems, some of which I am know about, others, however, are completely new to me.
Recently, a constituent came to me about her daughter who suffered from Lyme disease.
I will be honest: I knew very little about it.
However, after meeting both Louise Alban and her daughter, Rachel, from Hurworth, my eyes were opened as to how serious this little known condition can be.
A young student, attending Oxford University, Rachel had the whole world at her feet. But then she was bitten by a tick.
