Friendship Calls Participant – Klive

Klive lives with the debilitating illness fibromyalgia, which can really affect his day-to-day life and activities, the condition is little known in men so additional pressure is added, as others don’t always understand. On a bad day he may not even answer the phone, so we ensure our volunteers are aware of this. Klive loves to chat to anyone and really enjoys the calls. He still has good and bad days but finds the conversations with volunteers a tonic, and he says it takes his mind off his flare ups and enables him to think about other things for a short while.
