    Hi Tandy,

    Thanks again for the nice welcome!

    Regarding my DX.....Yes, it DID take forever to get it.

    My fibro started in 1989, and I wasn't properly diagnosed until I sought out an expert on fibro, a doctor who is also one of the researchers. And it finally came in June, 1994!

    5 long years of exhaustive tests to rule out everything else, and my doctor STILL could not diagnose me! Until I sought out that specialist, my doctor was convinced it was "all in my head" and that I was suffering from "severe clinical depression!!!

    How many poor souls are STILL out there suffering because they haven't been PROPERLY diagnosed??
