Petition: Fibromyalgia recognition within the DWP

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/105058

Petition: Have better understanding and recognition of fibromyalgia within DWP processes

Currently DWP processes do not consider nor understand the chronicity of fibromyalgia on daily living and in turn the impact on ability to sustain work. At present cases are not being assessed by professionals that are fully trained and knowledgable of how fibromyalgia affects daily living.

Confused who to vote for? This questionnaire might help.

I often think people are confused by rhetoric and debates and are influenced by personalities. Politicians are also often sufficiently vague in an attempt to capture as much of the vote as possible.

Bring our case to parliament?

Does anybody know how we can fight for our rights at parliament? Surely there is enough of us to make our voices heard against the DWP and un-believing GP's...
