    Hello All,

    Wanted to introduce myself as I have been reading forever and feel like I know you so well.

    I am Richelle and live in Johnson City, TN and have FM, RA, OA, Osteoporosis, Herniated Disk, Diabetes and let me see if I can think of anything else, lol.

    I know what you all go through, believe me as I am winding up a week long flare of fibro and my heart goes out to you. I use to be strong as an ox and played softball for 25 years and could lift the back end of a car, lol, but those times are long gone.

    I am on pain meds to survive but even tho I have these awful, painful times, it could be worse and I still am blessed.

    Hope all have a pain free night.

    Hugs
    Richelle

    I hope your flare settles down soon. Welcome to the board, I am a big sports fan also. I love the San Diego Chargers, that's why I picked "boltchik" for my nickname. Hope you have been able to enjoy watching baseball on TV while you are resting. Take good care of yourself! Kim

    Thanks so much for the welcome you all. I'm so glad I finally got the nerve to join you. I hope to talk to you soon so we can share our ordeals and cheer each other along.

    Oh yes, baseball has gotten me through many a flare, lol, but the stupid Cubbies almost add more pain to me . Hope to see all of you soon.

    Hugs,

    Johnson City, TN-I think that is where my hot water heater was made. I am a wealth of useless information...LOL

    Laura, Karen and Hob,

    Thanks for the welcome, I knew I'd love it here more when I posted. Feel better all and hope the fog leaves soon.

    I've resigned myself the fog is here to stay with me, lol.

    I am proud to live where your water heater was made Karen, lol. If it tears up, I will contact those darn folks, ha.

    Hugs,
    Richelle
