Hi - Please see below and respond directly to the requestor ; paisley{{at}}talktothepress.com

Hi there,

I'm a feature writer for an award-winning agency called Talk to the Press and I have been researcing TMAU.

I would love to get in contact with a female sufferer to talk about their experiences.

Do you have any case studies or know of anyone who would be willing to talk to me?

It would just be informal at first and off-the-record, but if they decided they were happy to go ahead with a story I would send it out to the national newspapers and women's magazines.

They would receive a fee for their time and it could be a great way to raise awareness in the national media.

Any help you can give me would be great.

Paisley

Hi All

I responded to this also - although I've been interviewed before I thought I'd offer in case no one was comfortable to come forward, as I think it's important our story gets out there.

So it's on p.27 of the Mirror today. On balance the article is ok - to some degree it's what you would expect, but it's fairly balanced. However, and I made this very clear - I do not, like many of us, smell of fish. And it's in the headline even though I said no. However, that's a compromise I suppose I'm ok with - it's out there now. And perhaps the people in my local newsagents will be a little more polite to me when I buy the paper. And perhaps not!

Hope you are all well - I've not posted for ages - work is so busy - hope you are all keeping your spirits up - don't let this define who you are. You are all amazing people. Fight for your happiness because you deserve it. We all do.

Ellie xx
