About The Author

Louise Lushton is a librarian, writer, filmmaker and web designer. She has had ME/CFS since 2020. To cope with her disease, she adopted wearable technology and apps to keep track of her symptoms and to better self advocate with medical professionals. Her professional ability to conduct thorough online research meant she has been able to keep track of new developments in the study of ME/CFS.

Since her diagnosis she has watched Long Covid grow into a massive public health emergency. As Long Covid and ME/CFS look extremely similar (and may in fact be the same disease), Louise decided to create a site to share her own information about using technology in the management of chronic disease.
