Such a sad story

Postby Zia2014 » Tue Feb 24, 2015 5:40 pm

I'm really affected by this because I met her father yesterday through their/his charity, he is very brave.

(sorry it's a DM link).

I really would urge anyone feeling so isolated or low to please, please seek help from The Samaritans.

ETA: This is their charity website: http://www.awaywithpain.co.uk/pacing-and-chronic-pain

So very sad, but unfortunately not unique. I really hope the film will raise awareness and those that feel they cannot carry on are given some hope

There is a stickied post giving advice for those of us who feel they need it, but thanks Zia for raising this issue and the links :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:

Oops sorry denys didn't realise that!

I just wanted to post it having met him so recently, as he just seemed so determined to carry on the charity for her. and I've seen how down people can get, and felt it myself.

I watched the movie. It was very good at portraying how we are when we are in pain on a daily basis. Sometimes it can get too much for some people :(
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.

I am taking my husband to see this. His words, when I told him about it were. 'I might actually get what you go through if I watch it'. Lets hope it has this effect on more people. He holds his hands up to not 'getting it'. I really hope he does 'get it' after watching it. Living with Fibro, possible crohn's and mega migraines is bad enough, without being a mum too! We have a 6 month old and I am starting to find it really tough.

Here's hoping it helps him and you Jemma, let's hope the film really helps people understand because it is so difficult to explain.

That's interesting, I read the plot outline on wiki and wasn't sure how good it was going to be. I can certainly identify with the 'anger management issues' she appears to have :oops:
