    19-year-old claims the bug was in tap water which ended up on her contact lens and could now kill her
    • Skye Wheeler endures unrelenting exhaustion and excruciating pain
    • She claims a parasite burrowed into her cornea and ate away her eye at just 14
    • The microorganism is 'sleeping' in her eye and could reawaken at anytime
    • Ms Wheeler says her life has been 'ripped to pieces' and only 'ash' remains
    • She wishes those who doubt whether ME is real could experience it for an hour


    I've not heard of this parasite/infection thing. Sent a shiver through me tbh. Best wishes to Skye and anyone else affected.
