Hi everyone. My name is sarah and I am 23 years old. When I went into the doctors this last week I thought I would be told that whatever I had been dealing with over the last 6 months would go away. I was trying to be positive knowing that my symptoms were really getting worse. So the doctor told me I have FM and CFS. I didn't have a clue what it was. I have known this for a week and while researching it I have become scared. I don't know anyone else with this condition and I have already had problems with work. I am scared about the pain and fatigue and all the other things that come along with it. It sounds like some of you have been dealing with it for quite awhile. If any of you have any advice or encouraging words that would help me get over this shock and into my new lifestyle it would be great. Thank you Sarah!
