Campaign: To raise more awareness of invisible illnesses

Last year I was diagnosed with a condition called Fibromyalgia.

 

It causes me to have pain in my body on a daily basis and can often leave me bedbound for days at a time.  Simple things like brushing my teeth can be painful.

 

Unfortunately, many people look at me and think I’m perfectly fine and they don’t understand the condition.

 

My Fixers campaign is to educate more people about the illness including health professionals and employers.

 

I’ve designed a leaflet with Fixers which offers more information about Fibromyalgia so people can be better equipped to support those like me.
