    I just wanted to introducte myself, my name is Sheila, 37, married and have two very spoiled dogs. In May, was diagnosed with fibro by my d.o., next week see an ra doctor. I am various meds for migraines, lexapro for anxiety/depression, and now take lyrica (which am not crazy about the side effects). It has been hard last couple of months, but am learning, switched to different job in January, new employers are very understanding. Try to move everyday, would love to get some extra weight off. I lose and gain the same seven pounds, LOL. Fibro runs in the family, along with migraines, etc. You would think there would be support from that but there is not, so am founding new avenues to help. So hope to chat with everyone whether thru here or on chat. Also have yahoo and myspace acct., if anyone wants to "chat" that way also.

    It's good to have you join us. You'll learn your way around the boards here quickly. Don't be afraid to ask for any help you need with that. Some of us have been here quite a while and know the ropes pretty well. We'll all be glad to help you.

    Like Joan, I have FMS and Arthritis. I'm 62 yres. old and disabled. No pets allowed where I live, but I'd love a little dog. I'm almost single.

    Join right in our discussions. Post on any board you like whenever you like. You are welcome here. I'm sure you have alot of knowledge and experience to share with us also. We are all in these DD's together.

    Hugs, dolores
