Let us hope that Kirsty knows, or finds out, that at least some who suffer fibromyalgia appear to do so in the context of hypothyroidism.
I can't imagine for one moment that she would openly become a member. (I'd encourage her not to!) But under whatever name, she'd be most welcome.
Kirsty Young to take time out from Desert Island Discs
30 August 2018 Entertainment & Arts
Kirsty Young is to take a number of months off Desert Island Discs because she has fibromyalgia, and Lauren Laverne is to fill in for her.
Desert Island Discs returns to BBC Radio 4 on 16 September and Young will host the first two episodes with castaways opera singer Danielle de Niese and neurosurgeon Henry Marsh.
Laverne will host the third episode onwards.
Four presenters have hosted the show since it started in 1942.
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body and can bring on severe fatigue. Lady Gaga also has the condition.
Please be considerate in any responses.
