BODY,  Disability,  LEANNA WHO?

ME/CFS Payback Sucks!


Having ME is really tough.

I knew my body would react to me having the audacity of having a holiday but this Sucks!!

No sympathy needed, I just needed to be honest.

Some people won’t realise there is a cost for ME ‘warriors’ when we do anything.

That’s why our time is precious.

I’m not complaining – just stating a fact.

At the tender age of three, Leanna Benjamin knew her place was in the limelight and that nothing else would do. From her parents' living room in Leicester, she pirouetted her way straight through school into the BBC. Just as her dreams were coming to fruition, a simple case of the flu triggered a debilitating illness that has left her with life changing consequences. Leanna Benjamin is a Graeae Theatre Write to Play alum, and a Leeds Playhouse Fuse Writer, but this is not the synopsis for her new play - it is the story of her life. And she wants to share it with you.
