Some of us knew her as Jessie Oliver, her pseudonym here on LJ where she blogged as [ profile] _chaotictears_.

Those who met her in real life after she became ill have documented what they saw; a girl who could not speak, who could not move from her bed, her body broken by severe ME and forced into meltdown by the invention of misguided medical professionals. Those with little or no understanding of the critical importance of total rest during the initial stages of sudden-onset, acute ME.

Those of us who knew her online knew a different Lynn. We knew a bright, intelligent and optimistic girl with a lively spirit and a keen sense of humour who always had a kind word of support whenever one of us was feeling low.

Yesterday I discovered I'd lost a dear friend. I know that for Lynn it was the release she had desperately craved. For me and the rest of her friends her passing has left a huge a heart-shaped hole in all our lives.

I've started a Facebook group called 'Friends of Lynn Gilderdale', if you've got a Facebook account please join. If you'd like an email invite from me please drop your email addy in a message to belle_marmotte(at)
Please make sure to put the NOT com!

As Lynn's mum has been arrested on suspicion of murder I think we need to rally all the support we can for her and her family.

I was so sad to hear of her passing and even sadder to discover she was _chaotictears_

My thoughts are with her family and every one of friends right now. Her loss will touch many.

It will indeed. She had a large network of online friends and she managed to make us all feel special and valued.

For one with so much of a burden to bear in life she gave so much love and support.

I just wanted somewhere that she could be remembered for the person she really was.
