    Hi,
    I've belonged to the board since last Nov. I finally have the courage to post.(I'm not a computer whiz by any means)I want to thank you all for your bravery and information you share. The validation this board creates is an amazing gift. Thank you!

    I will keep you all in my prayers! Please be patient with my responses as I'm not always on the internet everyday. Can't wait to get to know everyone.

    Glad to have you. I am fairly new...a few months to the board. I think its a wonderful gift too. My husband teases me now and asks how all my new friends are when he gets home from work :)

    I have a soon to be 12 year old daughter.( has the teen attitude already!) I can not imagine having this illness with so many children. Someone just said they had 6 boys!!!

    I am a full time worker but took a 6 week leave because I could not function any more. Now I am in the midst of deciding on the disabitly route.

    Well, enough about me...just really wanted to say hi.

    Look forward to your posting/responses,

    Thanks for welcoming me. (Hopefully this works) just in case it doesn't what do I do to let you know I've read your replies? Do I reply to everyone or can I add a group thank you by replying to my own post? Thank you for teaching this newcomer !

    You filled in your bio...but if you could put in some more about what treatments you're on and what you've tried. What works and what didn't.

    I have CFS due in part to viruses: EBV and CMV but these are common viruses, so the real question is why is my immune system weak? My answer is due to Lead toxicity. Lead & Mercury weaken the immune system.

    I would recommend that you get a hair analysis to see if metals play a part in your FM.

    http://home.earthlink.net/~moriam/ is a link for Dr. Cutler's postings on the Chelation forum but there is a wealth of info there. He is a PhD chemist who specializes in metal toxicity chelation. He also discusses hair analysis.

    Welcome to the board and feel free to quiz, ask and tell.

    You are right, you'll learn so much from the people on this board! I'm like a sponge trying to absorb it all!
