Hello fellow members,

I thought you some of you may be interested in this post from our Facbook page. Remember, if you have skills to give why not use them to be a volunteer, not only a great addition to your CV but more importantly helping the cause! If you have some time to give please see the article via the link which says how to get in touch :)

A Day in the life of a FMAUK Helpline Volunteer

What follows is a day in the life of a FMA UK Helpline volunteer. These are the people on the other end of the phone when you perhaps need some help on the phone. They all suffer FM as well and get a lot out of providing this service.

Working on the FMA UK helpline is certainly a varied and rewarding experience. For me, I am glad to play my part in helping other people with FM by simply listening to them and letting them know that I understand what they are going through.

The calls can be very varied from people simply phoning to find out if there is a group near them or to place an order when the office is closed, to people who are newly diagnosed and scared because they have been told they have a chronic illness, with no cure and don't know anything about it.

I'd love to help, too, regno..., my fellow Texan !

But I think she's just re-stating that they'd love to have you IF it were possible!

So unfortunately I suppose we're both out of luck ...
