Noah Greaves, 33, is unable to walk, feed himself or even write unaided and only leaves the house for medical appointments, when he is escorted by his parents. He says he ‘doesn’t have a life’ and ‘sits in bed all day watching TV’ four years after being bitten by ticks while working outdoors in Scotland as an ecologist. NHS doctors have diagnosed him with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a lifelong condition that affects the brain and nerves.
