Jacob Teitelbaum comes to Glasgow

Jacob TWhat started as a talk for the Glasgow support group by the much respected Dr Jacob Teitelbaum has resulted in a tremendous event which exceeded all our expectations. The Pearce Institutes's McLeod Hall is meant to hold 250 people however, the hall filled very quickly and there were people queueing outside, around the building.

For our "invisible" condition it was quite emotional to see so many sufferers come together in Govan. Dr Tom Gilhooly commented that the more you look for fibromyalgia sufferers the more you will find. I am sure that the Glasgow support group (FFS) will have many new members as a result of this meeting.

The talk was inspirational and was very well received. While the talk finished at around 3.30pm, both Dr's Tom and Jacob were still fielding questions up until 5pm. As mentioned on the presentation itself we will be making materials available from the talk. This will include audio recordings of the meeting, the slides from the presentation as well as follow up material.

There were also some websites mentioned during the talk that we will add here as soon as possible. With people travelling from Ireland, as well as from all over Scotland, there were many from existing FMA support groups. However there were also those that were not members. So if you would like to get in touch with people close to you, then have a look at the groups link at the top of the page.

I would like to commend the staff at the Pearce Institute for being very helpful and accommodating. Yesterday would not have been possible without the help of Fibromyalgia Friends (Scotland), and we are very grateful for the help and contribution of all their volunteers as well as everyone that lended a hand.
