Hello; I found this site and found it interesting enough to go through the "joining" process. Have had Fibro for many years w/myofacia , etc...I'm a mom w/adult children as well as step-mom that are grown now and lots of grandchildren. Up until about 2 years ago, I also had a career. I just kept pushing on til the doc. had me sign up for disability, which my husband , you will never get it. You see he only saw me running my own business, taking care of my mother who had alzheimers, and my sister who had lost her husband. He had no idea I was hanging on by a thread. Well, I got on disability the first go round(thank the Good Lord) because I didn't have the strength to fight the system for myself. I had done that for my mom and sis. Does anyone else have to keep reminding themselves that they are ill? I wonder, after all this time, pain, etc...why I keep reading about others like me as though I need reasurrance. I can identify with so much and have had 4 doc. tell me that I had fibro as well as numerous other stuff and more keeps coming. I guess I find comfort knowing there are so many other suffers out there. Well this is enough for now. God Bless everyone. sheri suffering people.
