September 2017

Fibromyalgia and Us illustrates the ongoing life transitions of those who have fibromyalgia as well as its impact on significant others. It highlights the importance of a strong support network to enable people to adapt to the multiple transitions triggered by fibromyalgia and flourish despite its substantial challenging consequences. 

Professors Divya Jindal-Snape and Chris Murray met with Stewart Hosie, MP on 1 March 2019. The project was tabled as Early Day Motion at the House of Commons and a press release was sent from his office.

This comic is available in an electronic format and can be printed and used for educational and non-commercial purposes with due citation.

Due to popular demand, this comic has also been translated to Spanish and Maltese.
