My Blog is one year old today - time to talk about Fibromyalgia, CFS, ME and other invisible illnesses.
FOR 2014 -doing my bit to raise awareness about Chronic Fatigue/Pain conditions.
I realised this week chatting to other bloggers on Twitter just how many people I know have invisible illnesses - Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, SPD, ME..... but don't really talk about it. They just grit their teeth and do the best they can to cope.

So I am hoping to launch a regular spot for people to share their stories, coping strategies and help educate people about how hard it can be to have a syndrome that even some Doctors don't believe in.
I have launched a closed Facebook group for bloggers afflicted with any invisible condition - please email me or leave a comment if you would like to join or if you'd like to send me a guest post about your situation.
I will start with a post about my experience of Fibromyalgia next week - not looking for sympathy but hoping to educate and hopefully realisation that sufferers are not malingering attention seekers!
