    I just checked your bio. Gee, that is funny that you have 8 grandchildren - 1 boy and the rest girls. I have just the opposite. You can just check onthe rest of my bio for any more info.

    Welcome back. I do not remember you cause I was dxed a couple of years ago after almost 25 years or so and came to this board a bit before that.. Your story almost aounds like mine. I almost dxed myself and brought all my labs and stuff to the rheumy. She agreed with the FM along with along with CMFS. I also have osteoporosis and arthritis. Gee, I am a mess but just keep on chugging on as I am sure you are.

    Yes, they have changed the boards and we are all trying to get used to the new one. It has so much more on it now and is available to more people with more diseases, syndromes, etc.

    Bye for now. See you soon.

    Warm hugs,

    I have been through a deep depression on top of pain and just not mentally up to doing much. I figured that I should try to get back here. I added you as a favorite. I guess that is what we do if we want to have a friend list. I also am trying to figure if I should answer each post separately. I look forward to getting to know you.

    Love, Mari (MamaR)

    Hi Granni, Terch, Morningsonshine & Fivesue!

    I guess I can post just one message to all, as before!

    Hi Terch....I look forward to getting to know you! No, just the opposite. I am so much worse. I hate to say it...but it is that way. I would be here more...but I have such a problem many days of focusing on the computer screen. It is like I get lost reading and have to start over....SO FRUSTRATING! So, I just get down and stop. So, if I tend to ramble or repeat please look over me.

    It was also so good to see Misty and Sue! I am glad to see you both are still here. Misty, I see you still love your horses! I love the pic on your profile. I hope that you are doing better.

    I look forward to catching up. I can't sit long anymore due to back issues and the fibro. It is new year and time to try to get some serious help. IF I can find it!

    I will be on as often as I can. I mentioned the depression. It is because my health is so much worse. I barely get out . It is so hard to do grocery shopping anymore.

    I am going to a new rheumy soon in a Alabama. I live in Florida... and I am close to the Alabama line.

    I have a friend that uses a good rheumy there..plus many of the specialists are in one building...the HOSPITAL!!

    This will make it so much easier on me. I go tomorrow to my primary care doc and get my referral.

    Sue, our computer crashed and I lost e-mail contacts. I think I have yours in a file though. I will try to contact you. I hope all is well and that your move went well.

    Sue or Misty, do either of you remember Butzie? SHe was on here a few years. I had received forwards from her off and on. Well, I just received a mass e-mail a few days back from her husband that Butzie (Judy) is on life support! She had been in and out of the hospital and I can't remember all of her problems...but it was bad! I am so sad to here about her. I just didn't know if anyone here knew it or not. I am praying for her and the family.

    Well, I will be back soon and try to work on figuring this site out....lol

    Hugs, Mari (MamaR)

    Of course, you can write to me at any time sweetie. I have been dealing with this mess or so long and I think I have faked it for so long Trying not to complain much and all) that it hard for some to believe that I actually have physical problems. I now tell people and they are taken back . I walk OK although still in alot of pain. The pain is mostly in my head and neck but also have it i my back and other places. This pain can really run one down and get you frustrated and tend to take it out some on DH at times by snapping. He THINKS he understand but he has no clue, as you know what I mean.. We have been married 47 years now.

    It sounded like you were younger than Iso I checked your bio and sure enough you were (I think it was by 12 years, maybe more - see I have already forgotten (-: !). So sorry to hear you have also been suffering fdepreesion. I haven't actually had depression but was very frustrated when other docs, chiros in years past thought I was depressed and or was just a hypochondriac. Talk about frustration !!

    Enough about me now about you. How old are your grandkids. Mine are 18-4 years). My oldest child is now 45 . Yes, I have 5 children, 4 girls and then a boy - the opposite of you, Mari. I have to type fast since when DH gets home from his errands he will need it. Forgive any types and the shortness of this.
    Please feel free to contact me at any time, hon.

    Hi to everyone else to I would love to know you all better. I stay alot on the chit chat board and visit the porch often or as much as I can. I do get out and am busy . Anyone interested can read my bio. I have read the chit chata board often and sometimes I do alot of lurking and not posting due to not enough time on the computer. Unfortunatly, I have to share with DH . He also thinks I spend to muchtime on it. Wish I could spend more. The TV al ot of it stinks in my opinion but there are a few good ones out there. Sorry, this "old lady" is griping.. I am sure you younger gals enjoy some of the new shows. I do love the Dancing with the Stars when I am home to watch it and a few others. Yes, I love to watch osme of the cooking shows although I do not make all that stuff, maybe some of the quick foods with little prep and ingredients (-: ! Many are fun to watch though. Gee, I do not know how I got on this subject (TV programs).

    Patti - I love the story about your shopping epidsodes in your wheelchaire with DH !!

    Sorry y'all I have to run for now.

    Talk to you soon I hope. I usually try and check this puter every day but sometimes I can't if busy.

    How wonderful to hear from you!!! I've kept you in my prayers all the way through - since I remember your suffering with depression, as I do. We even had a special 'Depression' thread going on the Worship board, and I always included you.

    The worship board is now Spirituality/worship in case you want to look for it.

    It's so cheering to hear from you!

    Will be praying for your visits to your new rheumy also.

    With love, Judy

    I haven't been back since I posted this because of being so sick. I went to the doctor and he wanted me back tomorrow for blood work, etc. I can't explain how bad I have been with this muscle spasms.

    I will be going tomorrow to two doctors, primary and rhuemy about 70 miles away. I will try to get back and read as soon as I can. I wish that i was up to writing more tonight...but just can't.
    Thank you all for the kind words and all. I appreciate it so much and want to find about you all too. It really cheers us up to see our old friends...and new ones..right?

    Blessings to all.....Mari
