Recognise fibromyalgia as a disbilitating illness

This petition had 10,511 supporters

We fibro suffers are unable to find jobs due to our illness we are NOT faking it and (i know personally) can not find employment as we can not be trusted to get to work every day whether part time or full time...  But at the same time are unable to claim any disabilty rewards or proper health care and medication


I myself am a 42 year old woman with two small children and it tugs badly at my heart that I can not be the same parent for them as most small children have   5 mins of running around and thats me out for the rest of the day may even several ...picking my son up from school always tires me out and i just collapse once home 


I hardly sleep due to the pain im in at night  which makes me groggy the next day

My short term memory has just disappeared to the point i am now having to write EVERYTHING down so as not to forget...and yes sometimes i even forget where that book has gone to...


I wish to go to work as sitting around in doors can sometimes be a lil bit boring  and get out and make new freinds...but as soon as you tell employers about your illness they politley say NO and who can blame them..


I just want more help with my medication I want it to be recognised as an actual illness and disibilty I want help to make my live better to live in for ME but most of all my FAMILY 


Please sign this potition for me and 10's of other sufferes in the UK  help give us a voice   help us to be heard a little lOUDER xx


We need this to be seen as bad as it is like they do in AMERICA
