    Hello! This is my VERY first time in ANY type of message board or chat room, so I'm unfamiliar with procedures. I know we all have our own lengthy stories, so I'll sum this up as: I just turned 45 and have Fibro & CFIDS going on 6 years now. Was able to work on and off until March of last year. Now homebound, get out once in a while on my "good" days, lost some of my "friends" and have been all over the Internet searching for more info on how to cope, feel better, etc. (which I think I'm handling okay for the most part with the unconditional love and support from my hubby and HUMOR!) Would love to participate in this forum and look forward to "talking" with you all. Thank you!

    This is a wonderful place for information, support & if you need it - just to vent. Sometimes it feels good just to "get it all out", if you know what I mean.

    Take care!

    Sorry that you have to be here with the rest of us, but it's always nice to know you're not alone. I am pretty new here for posting also, hope you feel at home.


    Take care.

    I just noticed that I never welcomed you. So, Welcome!

    I just read your profile and we have some in common. The biggest being our location. I live near by and am moving into Scottsdale in two months. I would be interested to hear if you have found any support groups and what docs you might recommend.

    You can read my bio to learn a bit about me if you'd like.

    Glad to meet you!
