Today’s Unrest in Dumfries and Galloway event. We’d invited the NHS, MSPs and other third sector organisations to a showing of an excerpt from Unrest to be followed by discussions. Thank you so much to Paul, Nancy, Lesley, Sarah and Connor who were thrown in at the deep end when Jen Brea wasn’t well enough to Skype with us. They talked about their illness and how it affects them, which was much better for the understanding of those in the auditorium. They were moved. You spoke powerfully and you spoke well. The discussion then moved on to our current situation in D&G – mainly in the NHS. Some good suggestions were made
Please join us for a showing of @unrestfilm in Dumfries on Tuesday 15th May at 7pm at the Robert Burns Centre Film Theatre, followed by a discussion with Dr Charles Shepherd, Medical Director of @MEAssociation. #mecfs #pwme #timeforunrest @jenbrea
Please come along and support us at the big Tesco Extra, Cuckoo Bridge in Dumfries on 12th May, Awareness Day, as we let people know about ME and Fibromyalgia. We’ll have a desk near the entrance to answer any questions people ask, and hand out contact cards for the group. We also have purple (for Fibromyalgia) and blue (for ME/CFS) Awareness ribbons to give out in exchange for a donation.
For those of you who were not able to attend our monthly meeting on Thursday 1st December 2016 where we had guest speaker, Hazel Borland, administrator with FMA UK (Fibromyalgia Action UK), we have created an information sheet covering all that was discussed. We hope you find the information useful 🙂 To view, click here.
Hazel Borland from FMA UK (Fibromyalgia Action UK) will be at the meeting to talk to us about the work they do. There will be plenty of time for the usual catch ups and coffee and tea will be available. The meeting will be held in the Midsteeple in the centre of Dumfries High Street. Entry is through the blue Box Office door. We use the first floor meeting room and there’s full disabled access using the lift (press and hold the button).
Hello, my name is Michelle Mungin and I have agreed to write a monthly blog for the DGMEFM Network based on the current topics being discussed on Facebook (don’t worry it will be anonymised as I am not the only one making posts on Facebook). As a means of an introduction to myself, and for my first blog, I have written about my story which I hope you like. Fibromyalgia a day in the life of a Warrior – A little about my past I went to college to start my brillant life in care when I was 16. Never once did I think my life would have fibro or
