Jenny Brockie takes a look at chronic fatigue syndrome, what symptoms it has, and how people with the condition have managed it.
At 20 years old, Adele Clydesdale had just climbed Mount Kilimanjaro; she was starting her second year of university and playing in the Victorian Netball League.
So when she got glandular fever, she didn’t think much of it. She knew plenty of people who’d had it in high school and they always recovered quickly.
But even when tests results revealed the glandular fever was out of her system, Adele was still unwell and her symptoms were getting worse. She was increasingly fatigued, couldn’t string sentences together and had extreme body pain.
At six months, it was confirmed Adele had chronic fatigue syndrome, a diagnosis she found quite confronting.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is estimated to affect between 0.2-2 per cent of the population in Australia yet very little is known about this condition.
Otherwise known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME, it is an illness characterised by profound fatigue, not relieved by sleep or rest and worsened with activity.
Patients will commonly experience muscle and joint pain, impaired memory and concentration and gastrointestinal disorders. However, the most defining indicator of CFS is Post Exertional Malaise (PEM) - when a certain level of cognitive or physical exertion will exacerbate a patient’s symptoms.
There are currently no proven treatments for CFS which means many are left without answers. Ketra Wooding has been unwell for eight years and with such severe symptoms, she has been living in a nursing home for five of those years.

Jenny Brockie takes a look at what it's like to date when you're over 60.
Corporate speaker and theatre critic, Ron Lee, is in his sixties and busy dating six different women several nights a week.
Recently retired scientist, Mariane Merati, 61, loves romance and has found she’s in hot demand with younger men on dating app Tinder. She likes to explore the world by dating men of different cultures.
And 74-year-old widow, Beverley Rilatt-Richardson, entered the dating scene in her seventies and was surprised to discover she still had ‘pulling power’. She reawakened herself sexually and was thrilled to fall in lust at 73.
The stereotypes of older people being ‘past it’ or no longer interested in dating or sex are smashed in this episode of Insight called Dating After 60. In fact, according to online dating website, RSVP, older adults are the fastest growing demographic on online dating websites. RSVPs over sixties members are on the increase and now account for 14.5 per cent of all members, up from 11.4 per cent just a year ago. With more and more single people over 60 looking for love, there’s been a rapid proliferation of dating sites popping up especially for the baby boomer market.
Seventy-nine year old Jim Peters hasn’t been on the dating scene since he was 20. He was married for 50 years and when his wife died five years ago he thought he’d stay single forever. But a few years later their dogs died, the house was quiet and he discovered that the life of a grey nomad wasn’t for him so he bravely put himself out there on an online dating site. He’s looking for a well-travelled, intelligent lady between the age of 65 and 75. He says he's not dead yet so why not get out there and live a bit!
This humorous and surprising episode examines what it’s like to look for love and companionship after the age of 60.
