Hi rach

I bet they do not treat people with fibromyalgia in Casualty - well they wouldn't would them in A & E. What about Holby city, has anyone with FM ever been treated there? No, of course not - they have no idea about us poor fibromites - why not write and tell them what a life we have with our invisible aches and pains?

I'm sure either Casualty or Holby City featured someone with ME not that long ago ... of course, with bad fibro-fog today ... it was maybe a completely different programme. But i'm sure i remember ME being mentioned in some medical based tv programme

Dear Rachel

Thank you for your e-mail regarding 'Casualty'.

I understand that you feel there should be a storyline based on a patient with
fibromyalgia.

Although I cannot guarantee that this will be possible, please be assured that I
have fully registered your comments and they will be available, through our
daily logs, to the 'Casualty' production team along with senior BBC management.
We welcome all feedback and suggestions from our viewers and your comments will
play a part in future programme making decisions.

May I take this opportunity to wish you the very best of health in the future
and thank you, once again, for taking the time to contact the BBC with your
suggestion.

Blimey Rach! :shock: Well done you :!: :!:

Maybe you're right and we should all email the beeb about including FMS in a story line. :idea:

Wonder if they're gonna need REAL fibromites?......I'm ready for my close up Mr. DeMill :P

Only trouble is that if I was on the screen, they'd need to give it an X rating and carry a health warning for children, animals and anyone with a dicky ticker:oops:

H Rach
Great work - and just to show how well I think you have done I am going to put a piece in FaMily and tell everyone to write in support of our Rach to the BBC Casualty and Holby City to ask if we can have some fibromyalgia patients on screen and to say we have got lots of talent down here at UKFibro Forum - what do you think?

Are you up for it - fame at last - I will be wanting your autograph tho. But seriously I think you did a grand job - keep up the good work - let us keep writing to everybody - what about Mr B - not Bush the other one - Bush is too far away.

We all know Mr B lives at no 10 and another Mr B - Brown lives at No.11 and I am sure there is a Downing Sreet website. I will do a bit of research and put the email addresses up on the forum. It will be interesting to see what kind of reponse you get there. While we are at it why not have a go at the Health Minister Patricia Hewitt - she must be the one with the purse strings.

If only we could find a cure and a quick diagnosis. Just think we would have nothing to rumble on about.....

Take care, keep welll and carry on smiling. A curve is a smile which straightens out a lot of things.

As ever

Hi Ladies

Well done Rach . I love a campaign. I have written to Mr.Blair and The Health Department a couple of years ago, both reply’s much the same, saying it is a Local Government Issue !!!!!!! . Maybe if they receive a shed load of letters from across the country they will stand up and listen .
Fibro was on a telly Hospital programme last year can’t remember which one (Dame Fibro Brain) also Richard and Judy I believe ?? (Take into account the big fog lol)

While on health issues has anyone heard that high cholesterol is connected to Fibro?

There are lots out there now for peeps with Fibro and it is recognised as a Chronic Illness I believe the main prob is GPs are not aware of it.

Have a great day all

Joy xx

This is rach's sister (Tasha) posting on behalf of rach as she was overwhelmed by what you have said to her. I do not have fm, however I have obviously learnt a lot recently. Thank you for all the support.

on reflection and if my brain is clear ( some hope lol ) On National Fibro Day last year that was the mission to write to Mr B. Coverment Bodys, local Mps, TV and anyone else that would listen did anyone here join in ?

Joy X happy to write again about awareness
