IN THE DARK I've Spent A year In Complete Darkness Because Of ME And Can Only Muster The Strength To Speak For Half An Hour A Day

IN THE DARK I’ve spent a year in complete darkness because of ME and can only muster the strength to speak for half an hour a day
Natalie Price, 28, from Cardiff, has been virtually bed bound for 12 months
A WOMAN has spent nearly a year in complete darkness due to a disorder that has left her extremely sensitive to light and sound - and only able to hold down a conversation for half an hour each day.
Natalie Price, 28, from Cardiff, Wales, has been virtually bed-bound and is no longer able to read a book, cook or watch TV.
Fiancé Jonathan Vaughan, 30, a council worker, who is now Natalie's full-time carer said: "The hardest part of it all is that that I can only spend around 30 minutes with her every day.
"She can only see friends for about 20 minutes once a month.
"They will come up to her darkened bedroom and speak to her but very often she can't reply very much.
"Just going to the toilet is like running half a marathon for Natalie.
"I’ve had to stand by and watch the girl I love going from a very active, determined person to someone who can't even eat a bowl of soup because it requires too much energy in her arms."
