PTSD: The Speakmans change Michelle's life

Thank you. I had planned on killing myself… and now I’m living.

– Michelle Sanderson

RAF Paramedic Michelle Sanderson was the first female to work on the Afghan frontline, but after three brutal tours of duty she found it impossible to step outside her front door.

Michelle was suffering from severe PTSD - a condition which has increased by 800% in the last five years. Wetting the bed and having terrible nightmares, the memories of Afghanistan haunted her. So could the Speakmans help?

Ed Miliband answers YOUR questions

After Labour leader Ed Miliband joined Phillip and Amanda to discuss his policies and plans for the country, we gave you the chance to put your questions to him ahead of the May 7 General Election.

In reply to one viewer, Ed admitted, “We got it wrong on immigration… and we’ve said in the future that we’ll have much longer periods before when new countries come in to the EU, and we are also addressing benefits. If people come to this country they will not get benefits for at least the first two years.”

When asked about bedroom tax, Ed said, "We are going to abolish bedroom tax… I don’t think it’s fair, and I don’t think it’s working either. It’s a disaster, and that’s why we are going to get rid of it."

Before leaving Ed made clear why he thinks people can believe in Labour. He said, “The most important reason why people can believe we will keep our promises, is we are showing how we are paying for them.”

He added, “I will come back on the sofa if we win the election and you can hold me to account for that!”

Can you relate to Pietro? Are you someone whose good looks have become a hindrance to you? Is it harder to take someone seriously who is beautiful? Or perhaps you think someone's ability and talent will always shine through regardless of how they look?
