    Hello everyone! I have been searching for a board that offers support, and understanding. This seems to be it! I have had FMS for 14 years now. I also have MPS, IBS, CFS, RLS and probably some other things with initials! LOL! I just started working full time again. Not sure I will make it or not. Some days I think it is going to kill me and then others I enjoy it.
    I do try and see the lighter side of life. I love to laugh and make others laugh. I enjoy reading, going to the movies, camping, and gardening...in my spare time! I am married for 21 years to a wonderful man who is my best friend. We have 3 kids (they would kill me if they knew I was saying that!). 1 Daughter who is 20, and 2 son's, 18 & 16.
    I live in Texas (the Dallas area). I have 3 dogs. Hmmmm...I think maybe that is it. You can always ask me questions.
    Glad to have found this place.
    hugs to all,
    Duffsangel

    i'm glad you like to laugh and make other people laugh, i have been cutting up on the board today, must need some release bad!

    welcome to the board and good luck with working full time, i can't imagine. i will be visiting dallas for the first time this december, can't wait.

    glad you have such a supportive spouse, a lot of us have "problems" in that area to say it gently! maybe some tips will be forthcoming that will help us.

    warm regards, fibolady

    Just wanted to welcome you. You will love it here, nice friendly people.
    I give you allot of credit for working full time, I wish you luck. I just couldn't do it right now, unless I found a job that let me take naps whenever I wanted, or maybe work at home so I could sneek naps. Gotta have them.
    I also live in Texas (Houston area). I have 1 dog (220lbs.) and one cat. By the way, the dog lives inside the house. I might as well have 3 or 4 dogs. But he is my baby. I have 3 kids Son is 32, Daughter 31, and Baby daughter 23. And I have 4 granddaughters.
    I think you will like it here, I am anxious to hear how you got well enough to get a full time job.
