MND and 22 Year Old Me

The youngest person with motor neurone disease in Scotland, Lucy Lintott, is becoming paralysed - she can no longer walk unassisted and she is losing her voice - not great for a chatterbox. Even though she has been given only a few years to live, Lucy is determined to do what 22-year-olds do - including dating. Over a six-month period, this lover of food and country music reveals how she is struggling to hold on to her personality and her infectious laugh. In an emotional sitting Lucy confronts two polarised parts of herself - pre-diagnosis and three years after diagnosis.
