    But with an informal group already established, Fay now wants to create a network to join forces with other sufferers and supporters and spread understanding.
    "The biggest problems are the stigma and people thinking, I've heard of that but I'm not sure what it is," she says. "But I am strong enough to campaign, to get the word out there and push for more help to be available, and I'm happy to do it because it gives me a purpose. I feel like I can do something good and all this isn't for nothing.
