Taking the #FibromyalgiaPalmChallenge to the next level


Do you know a celebrity personally? An actor, author, musician, painter, mayor, senator, dancer, singer, speaker...? Someone who can take the #FibromyalgiaPalmChallenge, tag others and help us reach the next stage? Can you ask them to take the challenge and encourage others to do so?

OR

If you work in an organisation where the boss understands and supports you, can you try if the entire company can take up the challenge as a team and tag others? For them it can be a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) deed as well.


OR


If you are a student or teacher, can you convince your students / school / college to take the challenge?

OR

Do you have any other ideas you'd like to share with us?

Short Stories - Reminder Notes

Janice knew that look. She hated it. The slightly raised eyebrows, the slightly tilted head and that rather long glare made her feel like disappearing immediately. That accusatory look was not new to her. She never lied. Why should she? But she forgot things, not all, but a few. The ones that she should not forget. The ones that involved those people who were not so understanding. She had also started getting confused more often lately.
