    Hello to you all. I have just found this board and hope to meet many of you in the future.
    I have Fibro/cfs and was only diagnosed Oct 2003 but i have been very ill for over 20years or more prior to this.
    I caught a nasty viral infection very similar to Meningitis which put me to bed for almost 3 months.
    I now lead a relatively normal life, whatever that mean's as i have learned so much about my illness and learned of ways of coping as well.
    Somedays however it just takes over dos'nt it and you have no choice but to go to bed and rest up.
    I am going away on holiday for a week on Sep 30th to try and get some warm sun on my tired weary bones for the winter here in England.
    I am 51 years of age, married with 2 grown up children and 4 fantastic grandchildren.
    Look forward to meeting many of you and chatting to you too.
