From leaving school with little or no qualifications to having a successful career as an officer in the Royal Air Force, Michelle Partington has since resigned her commission after grueling experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq and is now battling PTSD whilst trying to get to grips being a civilian again. She is focusing her time on charitable work and public speaking whilst writing her memoirs. https://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/see-the-difference/stories/michelle-partington/ Former Royal Air Force Flight Lieutenant Michelle worked as a paramedic. Following tours of Afghanistan, she was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2012. Michelle has been selected for the rowing and powerlifting events at Toronto 2017. Dealing with the anger and anxiety her PTSD brings is an ongoing challenge, but she says Invictus has been a lifeline for her after being diagnosed: “I decided to give myself something to live for again. Invictus has given me a fire back in my belly, helping me physically and mentally.”
