    Hi, I was looking for a Support group for Fibromyalgia and came upon this site. I haven't been able to find a group in our area. Would like to join in and talk to some of you about this painful disease we all share.
    My prayers to all of you!

    I am located in NJ. You can click on the person's username to view thier profile and there should be a link at the top of the page for you to "view your profile/edit your profile" to take care of your own.

    Profiles just help people get some background info so they can help better.

    I was so pleasantly surprised when I got on here this morning and saw all my reply's!! I was diagnosed with FMS in 84. I am never without pain. Sometimes it gets better, sometimes worse.....mine is mostly on my left side, in the back and ribs. I have bad fibro fog a lot and memory problems. Just drives me crazy!! How about you, how is your pain? Is it constant?
    Thanks for your reply!!!

    Hi my friends, I wasn't on the computer yesterday at all, but this morning you should have seen the smile on my face when I had all these wonderful "WELCOME" reply's!!! Thank you for all your help. I am so happy to be a part of this.
    The sun is shining in Oregon and it is supposed to be in the 60's today. That should help the aching some!!

    Thanks for the welcome! My sis and I took a trip to San Francisco last Summer, what a beautiful state you live in. We loved it so much, we are going again this year, health permitting!
    Have a good day!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write. Wow!!! You are from England? Wow, that is great, getting to hear from someone that far away!! I am sorry you have FMS too!! It is a pretty rough way to have to live. Mine has gotten a lot worse in the past 5 years, or so. I was diagnosed in the 80's, but I know I have had it from when I was young, I just didn't know what it was. It will be fun to get to know you. I will be back on here probably this evening.
    God Bless, my friend,

    Hi, nice to hear from you. I also have arthiritis and several other illness's. Sometimes it is hard to keep going. It is nice to have someone to talk to who understands. Medications are so expensive these days, it is terrible. I will say a prayer for you and your situation. Hang in there.
    Big Hugs!

    I am from Indiana and the best thing that I ever discovered was the website!!! When I post a message and am discouraged, you can not imagine the wonderful, uplifting replys i get.

    we are always here to just listen too. When you have an especially bad day. come here and tell us all about it. There are so many who care and will replay. We will listen to you.

    I have had FMS (diagnosed) for about 4 years, osteoarthritis, and spinal stenosis. I know that you hurt - we care and will listen.

    Gentle Hugs and Love,

    Yes I get flares, though some pain is always constant, but many here are bedridden with pain. I get mine on the left too. So we are twins(LOL)!!!

    Be well.
