Lobbying your local mp

Postby Ange-MHS » Wed Apr 10, 2013 2:39 pm

I went to see my mp and gave him as much info in fibro as I could.
He encouraged me to ask everyone who has fibro to also speak to your local mp to raise awareness as hopefully the more people who make a point of taking the time to e mail, write or even arrange a meeting as I did today may make a difference.
I found the information on the fibromyalgia magazine.

I e mailed a letter on the cause and how it affects me and I was contacted within two days and a meeting was arranged within two more days
If you don't know who your mp is. Go on the web page

If we all push our mp's to take notice then we could make a difference, so we're not fighting for care that we need.
Gentle hugs to all
