yes it was worth it , i really thought that would shrug and say fibro so what ? but maybe people are now beginning to realise what fibro is? and just how it affects our lives. Yes it has made by day that little piece of plastic, and not only that it has given me some life back so now i can park near to the shops without worrying about getting back to the car , hope you having good day love to you Diddle x

Yes thats so true although we are all linked with the fibro, we also all have other things wrong be it back injury or other illnesses that are hand in hand with fibro that we all need different meds and treatments and not always for the same thing , its interesting to hear everyones take on fibro and how they came to get it and other ailments they have, i am glad that acupuncture works for you, i have never tried it they were going to give it to me then said it would be waste of time for me ??1 so that was the end off that, hope that not taking any tablets does not mess you up later or sunday you want to be full of it for mothers day, i have got cards on the side and couple presents as if i havent had enough the last 2 days . oh well you take care now and i would just like to say a very big thankyou to you this last week you have really helped alot you dont know how much with your advice/laughs and views so thankyou very much love Diddle x

Well done Diddle

I really must get mine in the post

The photograph is the stumbling block for me, because I just don't go out, only for hospital appointments, but I guess I need to get to one of those Photo Booths?

Anyone know of a different way to get the photos needed please?

Yes if you have got a passport photo just scan it and then print it off that is fine or if yoy have camera get someone to take pic and use photo shop on your computer to make it passport size and then print it off on proper photo paper you can get small photo paper from asda thik it about 2/3 pound. i was going to do all that but in end wen to asda and jus sat in booth i not good with computer and settiing things up , you could have it done at shop in our town there is normally a shoe mmender/key cutting shop that does passport photos it depends whatbis easier for you, good luck any way love diddle x
