    Hi! I joined this board last week because my daughter thinks its a good idea. I'm not really into this kind of thing but I'll give it a try.

    I recently was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. This has been added to other ailments such as heart disease and asthma. Anybody out there struggling with that too? My life is so different now that CFS has been tacked on to the list of illnesses to manage. At times it is very overwhelming.

    How many other people are on this board are 50 and older? Would you mind sharing your secrets of success in managing Chronic Fatigue with me?

    There are plenty of people your age on this board.

    You WILL get a lot of support here from people going through what you are.

    Your daughter was right. You've come to the right place.

    Many of us are shut-ins, can't drive, can't get to support groups, etc.

    This board is a big help in letting you know you're not alone.
