    Hello everyone!
    I'm usually on the boards at www.fibrohugs.com. I just found out about this great website a few days ago.

    A littl about me:
    Well, just like the rest of you, I suffer with Fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed in May of 2002. I'm 20 years old and I'm a college student majoring in Computer Science/ Software Engineering. This whole thing started back in '01 when I was big-time into lifting weights. Ever since I was diagnosed my life has been very different. I've had to adjust to a different life style, as the rest of you have. Well, gotta go. Just wanted to say hi and I'll definitly be on these boards from here on out!
    Keep the faith and remember this: "God WONT give you want you CAN'T handle."
    Hugs,
    Nathan

    Glad you found us! I am interested in hearing from the "youthful" crowd (and we are getting more & more of you) how you manage college, which can be stressful & exhausting in itself, with fibro. We have several college students here, so you'll be in good company. I am toying with the idea of going back to college at age 46 (I have a BA from my pre-fibro days) but am concerned about the workload, etc.---maybe just part-time. I imagine you have had to find strategies & ways to adjust that work for you, so I am anxious to hear more from you in the future. This is a great site, I have learned so much about fibro itself, treatments & just day-to-day coping here!

    Nice to have you with us!

    Hugs,
    Pam
