It showed up on my social media that yesterday was my one year anniversary as the Chairperson of the Newcastle Fibromyalgia Support Group.
What a year it’s been!
This past year has brought me back to life!
Whilst my body is in bits my brain is still ticking away (well…sometimes haha!) and it has honestly been a pleasure and an honour to be the Chairperson of this wonderful group for the past year! It’s given me a drive and a focus and has made me even more passionate about raising awareness of Fibromyalgia, reducing the stigma of invisible illnesses and disabilities, fighting for better standards in care, support and knowledge, more research and better funding.
I will always do my best to help support each and every one of you, and thank you all for all the love, compassion, support and empathy you have shown me, it really means the world to me 💖
This has been one of the hardest but most rewarding years of my entire life, and I thank you all for that!
I could not do this without the support from the committee, who all work so hard to keep the support group going. They welcomed me with open arms and I’m forever grateful to them, and each and every one of you!
As always, big love gang 💖
