this my first post and new to this site since yesterday. found it by mistake.actually learning, no coincedences in my life! i was diagnosed in 1990 and never met 1 person in my life that suffers from such a scourge so this is one maaavelous place for me to be and sooo happy to meet others in the same boat. although not happy there are others that are in my boat or share this awful cruise. (getting poetic on ya LOL sounds like a really bad pun). i can't wait to share my feelings, thoughts, and experiences with anyone who will listen w/out seeming to sound complaining. to anyone not experiencing fm it sounds that way. here i feel i am just sharing with other compassionate people that understand. as i am not used to being able to speak so openly about how i am feeling day to day. it's like we have to be "up" all the time. like what's the use. everyones heard it before. today is like any other day. but it's not. today is a bad day. yesterday was so so. tomorrow may be better, maybe not. but if it tomorrow is good, bad or indifferent i can feel free to vent. my husband, son, daughter, friends are used to the blah blah blah. they just don't understand like you all. so thank you thank you thank you. if someone read all of this, LOL, could you please let me know when this site was started and by whom?
