Hi everyone, Ive just got back from doing a 3 hour session on a stand to raise awareness of fibro.
I also had some literature about mental health awareness week so I feel that I have helped raise awareness of quite a few conditions.
Our stand was run by our local fibro support group at the local hospital. I had many good conversations with people of all sorts of ages.
The main concern that was raised is the ignorance of fibro. I think we are becoming more aware of mental health conditions. For me one of the biggest symptoms of fibro is depression so I couldnt talk about one without the other.
Im completely exhausted now, but at least I feel as though I have done some good work. We must keep talking to others about fibro and hopefully there wont be this ignorance.
Take care everyone and enjoy the weekend.
