Brett's Bid To Raise Awareness Of Fibromyalgia
Monday 13 November 2017
From UK newspaper the Bury Free Press:
Brett’s bid to raise awareness of fibromyalgia
One man’s campaign to raise awareness of a debilitating condition has reached social media and could hit the cinema screen.
Brett Robertson, of Bury St Edmunds, has suffered with fibromyalgia, a condition which causes pain, fatigue and muscle stiffness, for four years and is registered disabled as a result.
During one of his flare-ups he was researching support for people with the condition while resting in bed, when he realised he needed to take matters into his own hands.
“I was laid there and thought there was no advice of where to go to get help, so I thought I would set up my own support group on Facebook. Within a week we had 25 members and within a month or so we have 53.
“We are all sharing things that have worked for us. If people know they are not on their own, it makes them feel better.”
