    Hi My name is Kim, I'm almost 40 (yikes!), have four kids and a great hubby and have had CFSID for about 10+ years and FMS for 8+ years, with co-morbid stuff since I was 8. I live in Indiana but am moving to Colorado in April, in part due to my health issues. I am thrilled that I found this board and that there is so much activity. I have learned a huge amount just in the last 24 hours! Conventional medicine is not providing much relief, and it is time for me to expand my treatments, I have already tried some alternititve medicine but have a long way to go. Thanks to all of you who have posted so much info when I know you are dealing with exhaustion and pain! I have (over)written and posted my bio - wrote it in the middle of the night last night so forgive me.
    Earlier I posted questions re: probiotics and tempupedic mattresses but they are way back - if anyone has info to share about their experiences with these I'd love it! Looking forward to many more days and hoping I can help others, too!

    You can read about various topics in the library (in purple above). Lots of nice people here to share experiences, info, etc.

    I will bump up the post "What helped me" for you.
  4. It sure is nice to meet you, I have found this wonderful place also where there are others that have alot of the same problems that I do and it really helps. I hope it does you too.

    Thank you all for your kind and welcoming responses. I will work my way through the library - but I feel almost overwhelmed getting just through the daily posts! There is so much to learn and people to get to know! I feel like I've gone from isolation and frustration to feeling swamped with lots of things I'd like to try and a feeling of community - its a good feeling. I'm so glad this board is here
