    Hello Adrian, 
    I suffer from Fibromyalgia and Chronic fatigue and have done for years, however, in the last five months it has flared up very badly so I'm not able to get out much. I live in Suffolk, and many years ago I used to work at the local Disabled Advice Bureau as an advice worker in welfare rights, it was the best job ever.

    Hi @Marisa_D and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you.  I am sorry to hear that your pain doesn't allow to get out at times.  I have chronic pain which stops me getting out too sometimes.  Your former job sounds very interesting.  If there is anything that we can help you with then please just ask.  All the best.  :smile:

    Hi again @Marisa_D.
    Very sorry to hear you've been a bit restricted lately. You getting much support from your GP about the flare ups?

    Really interested to hear about your background in welfare rights. Do you do anything similar now?
