    Goes without saying but those on FB and Twitter please share.
    @Kina is there a way to get this 'shouted out' to all members?

    @Tom Kindlon can you help spread this; thanks in advance.
    @Keith Geraghty ditto.

    Good to see that AfME has put a note about the MEA's petition on its fb page, and provided the link to it.

    and I was surprised to find that my niece, who I didn't even know was interested in ME (haven't seen or spoken to her for years), has already signed it, and has said that she will share it on social media.

    Sorry to hear you are out of spoons @Invisible Woman . Have you tried CBT and a spot of GET? It is alleged to get you up and running you know. Pete, Simon, Mike and Esther swear by it. :whistle::ill::depressed:

    Well done for contacting the local group. We are doing well and were up to over 2700 last time I looked.
