    I was diagnosed several years ago with fibro and CFS. Just this week my husband was diagnosed with fibro as well. What are the chances? I had suspected for the last couple of years-he presented with his symptoms almost exactly like me. Now twice the money will be spent out on meds and he has to deal with this as well, I can say I literally feel his pain!! Are there any other couples out there that both have fibro or is this just a fluke? Hope everyone is surviving this cold weather! Thanks- Weencie

    I have been sick (ME/CFIDS)for abput 5 years and my husband has been having some symptoms in the last year, but nothing severe like me. I have worried about "spreading" my illness since I was DX'd, especially to my kids. I would take on all their symptoms, if any of them ever came down with this, if I could. We couldn't afford to have hubby lose his job, it's bad enough I can't work. Good luck to you and yours. Teresa
