I am starting this new thread because I am surprised that no one else started one on the new year. In some ways, I totally understand, I am personally not in party mode as this illness takes bigger grips in my body. And I will only be happier when it's all over. However New Years always sparks reflection on what I want my life to be like, what I want to change or what I want to do better. I am thinking that for those so inclined, it would be a great exercise to look for strategies for the next year to incite social change and encourage government action. Where do we want to be in 3 months time? What could we do for May 12th to be more visible? What should our next campaign be all about? How can we fundraise to get research funding to our experts?
