Thanks for letting me know. I've posted something on my Fb about it. I don't talk much about it on there but raising awareness like this week I will make an effort x

Wow that video had me in floods of tears. It's so close to home for me because I want to be an author and I struggle so badly with cognitive problems it affects everything I try and do. Ive shared the video on my Facebook page along with a short message and this is a big step forward for me trying to overcome how ashamed I feel about being ill.

Thank you to this website and to Emma for helping me xxx

Thank you Emma for sharing that powerful video, a good way for raising awareness as to what each of us fibro sufferers go through on a daily basis.

Brought tears to my eyes, we all fight so hard to carry on, as we know we have to, but not easy as mostly we are trying to put a brave face on to hide our feelings to people in the outside world......so full credit to you Emma to be brave enough to share it with us all.

(((Gentle hugs))). Goodnight :sleep: x
