Fibromyalgia (FM), Myalgic Encephalomylitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Sjogrens Syndrome (SS)
We are a group of positive, forward looking, people who have any one, or a combination of, the above-mentioned conditions. All of these conditions have various similar symptoms which is why we are able to sympathise and empathise with each other. Our aim is to express our understanding, offer our own experiences and possibly open up new avenues to explore via therapy, diet or mental well-being.
We often experience negative attitudes towards our condition, both in the workplace and the social environment. . Many have been pushed out of work. Many are feeling pressurised to leave the work environment. Consequently, our mental health is affected and we end up feeling worthless, undervalued and misunderstood. In our group we aim to change that. Together we are working towards making our lives, and those of others in the same position, not only worthwhile but to create an environment where we can express positivity and move forward as a whole to achieve things we once felt impossible and we never forget to have fun in the process.
On this site we aim to provide an overview of each of the individual conditions together with various therapies and food supplements which many claim help their condition. As non-medical-professionals, we are not recommending these treatments, supplements, therapies or exercises , but we are providing them so that you can discuss the possibility of using them to help your conditions, with your doctor or consultant. Please ensure you do this before starting.
We also have a craft making group with the aim being to create funds to enable people to experience some positivity in their lives by providing speakers and therapists to help them.
To make the most of our group, we recommend that you attend one of our face-to-face meet-ups so you can experience the positivity, encouragement, support and friendship.
Have fun, keep as well as you can and we hope to see you soon.
