    Hi to all of you. I am so pleased to have found this web site.

    I look forward to chatting with you all and sharing tips etc.
    Bye for now.

    I'm from Canada. That's the great thing about the internet, we can be an international group. We benefit from a much wider knowledge base.

    You will find lot of information here and meet lots of great people.

    Enjoy.

    Hi Julie,
    Welcome to our group. I just joined a few days ago and found out so much about my FM. I just found out a few weeks ago that I have Fm because I was in so much pain. I do find that stress has alot to do with my flare ups. For me that's almost impossible, my middle name is STRESS!!LOL I'm sure you will enjoy all these wonderful and caring people:))

    Luvs & Hugs,
    Joyce

    I'm from Scotland, 55, CFS/Fibro, CFS symptoms started 20 years ago like you but only diagnosed in late 94 when I became incapacitated. Fibro started 5 years ago.

    You will enjoy this board and get a lot of info and support.

    Nice to meet you.

    The more, the merrier. So glad you found us as it's a great site and I'm sure you'll add to our information and our fun.

    Read all you can...there are some really knowlegable people on this board. It is sometimes overwhelming trying to take all of this in.

    Post often. That way, we'll all get to know each other.

    Hi there juliejo! Welcome to one of the friendliest sites you'll ever find.

    I haven't even peeked at your profile, yet, to find out more about you but I'm sure we'll get to know each other in the coming days and weeks.

    If you have any questions about FM/CFS, this is definitely the place to post them. And if you have any tips, we'd love to hear them.

    I have you enjoy your time here.

    :)

    Chin up,

    Kim

    Good to meet you! I've been here for about a month, and
    am so happily amazed at how warm and responsive everyone
    is. There is such a feeling of community here.

    I feel SO much less isolated now, after struggling along
    with CFS for 12 years.

    I hope you can rest after your hydrotherapy.
