    Hi Rondaroo, you will find wonderful people here with helpful ideas and a lot of information about Fibro and CFS. I joined about a month ago and make this site my favorite site on my computer. I am Donna and I am 48 years old and have had Fibro for at least 10 years. I still work 50 hour weeks in our family business, but take some time off when I need to and get lots of rest when I am home. I live in Texas and I dread the heat coming up for summer, because it makes me feel worse.

    Rhonda I truly understand your pain with walking. I am 48 years old and walk like I am crippled. I really have gotten worse in the last two years. If I sit for long periods of time, it is very hard for me to get up and get my legs moving. This site is a truly wonderful place to get answers, advice or just vent your frustrations.

    wELCOME. I am sorry your legs are so bad. I first posted here with terrible legs, and they are now well!!!

    FM travels!!!

    A thing that helped a lot was epsom salt hot baths.

    Feel better. You have friends in suffering here for sure. Hope you filled out your bio I am about to look.


    Yoohoo Rondaroo, please fill out your bio, you can be coy, just is useful to know where you are located more or less and sex, age group , hobbies etc. Who knows some of us may be neighbors.

    Love Anne C

    There is no doubt that you will learn a lot and visit more than you may think. Everyone here is so nice and informative, not to mention much smarter than I am.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this board and now don't know what I would do without it.

    Like someone said, rant away!

    Welcome to one of the best resources for feeling normal!! I've felt like a freak for years now and I can jump on here from time to time and feel like I'm just like everyone else. It's wonderful to feel like you're finally understood. My husband is still having trouble understanding all of this. I'm thinking about emailing him this page I found that describes what it's like to live with something like this. It's called the spoon theory. You can search google for Dominie's Spoon Theory and you should be able to find it. I think her's was written about having lupus (I think), but it's a wonderful way of looking at it and actually helped me to understand it better also. I knew what I was feeling, I just didn't know how to put it into words for someone else. I sent it to my best friend and now she's one of the most understanding people around me. It's great to be here. I bounce in and out and a lot of the others are quite regular and all seem to be really beautiful people. While you're looking around, Stormyskye has a wonderful thread that you can search for by putting Road to Remission in the search box in the top left part of the screen. I think I enjoyed reading that more than anything so far, but I've only read a few... She's quite an inspiration, but then again, all of them here are quite an inspiration!! You'll love them all very soon. Welcome aboard!!!
