Hi Emma :wave: I have been off work for 10 weeks now after months of feeling unwell. Diagnosed officially yesterday. You will meet lots of new friends here. :grouphug:
I have and it has really made a difference to my life, knowing there are people out there who can support and advise or even just be there for you to moan to. :P

hey, It's good you finally got a diagnosis then isn't it, i mean it doesn't make you feel any better, but it's nice knowing there's actually a name for what you're feeling. I like knowing that there's others like me, thanks for making me feel welcome. :)

Not nice to have this illness, but it seems better somehow to be able to put a name to it! - Not that my GP agrees wtih that one!!

Hi Emma,
Bad news but its great that now you can get the correct support aimed at your condition.
Please ask any questions that are bugging you, even if it might sound stupid.

I find most GPs are like that, i've had some real nasties in the past, but the one i have at the moment is lovely, she really sympathizes with me, without being patronizing. She was the one who recommended i found some help. Thanks for being it!!
