    Just want to say HI, I have just joined your site and found the information on the boards very useful. I have FM diagnosed about a year ago prior to that about 6 years ago had ME but thankfully made a full recovery from that condition. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all and taking on board your expereinces and information you are able to share with others. Don't mean this in a negative sense, but it's nice to have found other people who understand the condition I have. xx

    Welcome! I've been here about 3 weeks and can't believe how much I've learned about FM. You'll find support, knowledge, a laugh just when you need it and lots of hugs!

    Thank you all for you kind and warm welcome, I am still finding my away around the site but what I have seen up to now has been really great. It's nice to be able to tell other people your problems and get believed because a lot of you have also had that experience...it's so frustrating when people ask you if you are ok and when you mention the words well actually not really it's like shutters seem to come down and cut off their brains and something seems to get lodged in their ears....so it's just so much easier to put on a brave face and smile sweetly and say yes all is wonderful thanks for asking...I am sure a lot of you also do this x

    group of friends. I "cried on their shoulders" on Sat. because things got more than I could handle.

    The responses were so WONDERFUL. I have read them over and over. Others just can not understand the pain, anxiety and fatique we go through. I have lost friends of this so-called "mysterious illness".

    But, as I write this, I am watching CNN this afternoon and seeing what has happened to those who live in "Katrina's" path. It is so sad to lose your homes, etc. I guess that we can always find others that are worse off than we are.

    Bless you and don't be hesitant to vent, cry or speak your feelings to us. We will understand


    Gentle Hugs
