Please See below email from Caroline, if you email her she will give you her mobile number so you can have an informal chat. :D


from Caroline Day

I am a freelance journalist. I write for both newspapers and magazines and focus largely on family and health issues - for example, in the last month I have had features on a child with the rare Proteus syndrome in the Daily Mirror, in the Daily Express on an actress who had arthritis as a child following Lyme disease and in that's life! magazine on a woman who suffers from cluster headaches, amongst others.
Having come across TMAU when I was doing internet research on an unconnected condition, I was interested by your website and I understand you are keen to raise awareness surrounding what sounds like a distressing disorder. I don't know if you have any members who have expressed a willingness to speak to the press - ideally who have not previously appeared on TV or in other publications - but I would be extremely interested in discussing a possible feature on their experiences.
If you knew of somebody who might consider this, they could of course contact me for a chat in confidence and with no obligation to take it any further if they chose not to.
Many thanks for your time and best wishes,
Caroline Day

Thank you admin for this contact. I am already in contact with another journalist so won't be able to do this as well. I have e-mailed her though and passed the info on to other TMAU sufferers. I hope someone becomes available.
