    I'm in PA, Northern suburbs of Phila.

    I've been a member of this board for 4 1/2 years, but am mostly a "lurker." I hope to change this in 2007, as I could sure use some friends :)

    My Fibro "symptoms" started over 11 years ago, but I didn't get a dx until Mar., 1997 - so almost 10 years with a definitive dx.

    Favorite Singer: Love lots of music...Classic rock, Contemporary Christian, Classical/Opera - Andrea Boccelli, Sarah Brightman

    Actor: I agree with the person who said Tom Cruise until he went off the deep end :( Would probably say Johnny Depp now, for his MEGA talent and versatility in choosing roles.

    Actress: Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts

    Comedian: I like CLEAN humor, so I enjoy Christian comedians like Mark Lowry, Chonda Pierce, etc.

    Author: Beverly Lewis, Danielle Steele, Norah Roberts

    Movie: Ghost, Titanic

    Scent: Several perfumes (light scents), candles, roses,
    lilacs, lavender, rain

    I live in Winterset, Iowa

    I have been on the board just short of a year. ( I think. Memory fails me a lot anymore)

    I have been dealing with CFS and chronic pain for 6 yrs now. Seems like forever.

    Favorites is harder because I like a wide variety.

    Singer I can't pin down to one. I like mostly rock, but anything form the 50's to current as long as I can understand the words over the music. I also like country, but the older the better. I like classical and jazz but prefer insturmental.

    Actor - I don't care as long as the movie is good.

    Comedian - DOn't think most of them are really funny

    Author - Robert Heilein with out a doubt

    Movie - The Alien Series

    Scent - vanilla

    Season - all of them
