    Wonderful, thanks Bob! :) :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I think you have all the necessary permissions, just let me know if you need anything.

    It may perhaps be easier for @Lucibee to send the details to Bob as a file by email, but I'll leave it to you two to sort out the details.

    Thanks to both of you. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    As I said, I don't want to create more work for anyone by doing this, so I'm happy to do any editing needed (if I can obtain the necessary permissions). If that's not OK, then I can upload them in a format that will allow an easy copy and paste.

    I have now worked out how to get it into Wordpress format, so it should be fairly straightforward.

    I love these photos of people in bed ... true, as posters have said, we are not all in bed all the time (or on the couch either) but that's not the point of this. The point surely is that, if we want to educate the public about this being a serious illness, then there's no point showing photos of us when we're looking "normal". What I especially like is the photos that convey a mood of loneliness and darkness (such as WB#4). This mood is important if we want the general public to understand this illness is severe; it isn't about having a cozy afternoon nap. All the photos in this link are way better than 'sore throat glamour woman'.

    Could someone crop this photo to edit out the Landscape on the Left of the image. A few versions would be great!

    Perhaps a the whole width of the image, just crop out some of the bottom as well.

    Thanks in advance!
