I would like to thank all those members who attended the Special General Meeting held last Monday. Although the majority were Trustees and Horsham Group members a quorum was achieved. Thanks go too to those who used their proxy votes. The resolution: “It is resolved that the draft revised constitution be adopted in its entirety.” was passed unanimously. The presentation by Jeanne Hambleton and Simon Stuart about the FMS conference held in April was well received. Members were inspired to consider attending the next one in April 2011. More details will be available soon, but if you want to book or learn more please email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 0844 887 2508 or 07806 808862 for information.

Stress affects well being and wellness
Amongst other things about stress Rebecca Richmond says “On the 3rd and 4th September, I am running a two day workshop , where I will share with attendees information that has transformed my life. This is not a Fibromyalgia workshop specifically and is suitable for anyone who is suffering from stress or wants to make changes in the way they perceive their life and improve their well being.”
Email Friend required
“I don’t know anyone with fibromyalgia and would quite like to be able to correspond with someone who also has it and is housebound like me. I don’t feel confident to use chatrooms so it would just be on an individual basis.
I am 61 years old I think! I am an artist and spend all the time I can in my summerhouse painting. I have lots of interests. I live on my own with 2 cats. I was a nurse before I became unwell. I have problems with my spine and have severe pain. Hopefully I will be having surgery soon. “
