Hi Everyone,

Its fantastic to finally find people who understand the daily challenges fibro life throws at you.
I'm a Lancashire lass also a single Mum.

Would love to make some new friends make and or female,especially as the winter is now upon us.

I am naturally a sociable,chatty person,due to this and other conditions I have ,my so called friends seen to have made themselves scarce these days :(.......hmmm at times like these you soon find out who your real friends are.

I am 42 .animal and child friendly .l love to help people in anyway I can,im not judgemental ,just cuddly and friendly and a good listener.

If you fancy a natte or feeling low and just want to sound off I would love to here from

p.s i hope this makes sense cos my brain is going on strike ..again!
gentle hugs to you all

I am Robert 41 from Chesterfield and would like to make friends and be there for fellow suffers of FM syndrome I myself have been diagnosed with it on Wednesday 15/01/2014 and to be honest I know it's there but accepting it is a different matter altogether cause still push myself to hard and now am suffering I was due to have a meeting at work today and after lots of messing about by my boss she finally texts me late last night and said 9am this morning I was asleep and didn't get to see phone till 00.50 and did not think she would have appreciated the text then so texted at 7.30 this morning and tat was in bed as could not get up at all. I am a support worker for people with learning disabilities, autism, and mental health and my job is to transition and support them in there own accommodation from residential or family life and this involves a lot of walking which I know I cant do on a daily basis and colleagues at work who know how hard I work have said I will not be able to come back but want to show them I can and if I end up finishing want it to be from my employer and not my decision something they are not willing to do at present. Quote' It's your decision I can't make it for you' this is after knowing it took me 45 mins to do a 15 minute walk up to the site unit last week to hand my sick note in. Anyone have any thoughts on this

Hi Robbie i think the best place for your question would be if you do a topic in the DWP/working/benefits board :-D

I'm Storm, 23, male, from Hampshire. I'm straight.

A little about myself - I love music, anime, manga, video games, geeky things like Sherlock, Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, Marvel/DC, all sorts really. When I'm not miserable about being in pain, I consider myself to be a generous, fun and loving person, and am always there to listen to a friend and help them out, no matter how big or small their problem is.

If you're 23-30, female, and from Hampshire or other surrounding areas, feel free to message me and get to know me more :)

i'm jenni and i am a single parent to two teen daughters. Turning 40 this year and have been single for 2yrs now. Tried the on line dating bit and had a couple of dates. But the men seemed very emotionally and wanted to "hug me and squeeze me and call me their pet george" (bugs bunny carton with a yeti)

Had symptoms for 5yrs. Dx February 2011

Hi. I'm Chris.

38 yr old man-child lol... from Egham
And how can I not be with osteoarthritis, epilepsy and fibro? (among other annoyances)
My man-childliness is my shield!

I like reading (all kinds of things, especially history) watching cool TV (stuff like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Fringe, Arrested Development, The IT Crowd, Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil, Arrow, Turn, Justified, Game of Thrones, Vikings, blah blah etc)
Gaming is good (I have a PS4 and laptop and am interested in building my next PC myself)
As I live with my parents (bah, grumble, meh) I have my cats with me who I love (they are my children after all) and the family dogs. I like taking pics of them, wildlife (if I can get close enough) and sometimes just random things (I spend a lot of time alone since all my old friends got married and had kids and stuff so why not?)
Music... metal and hard rock is sublime. I won't even start to list bands here cos I'll be here all night but if you know it then I've probably heard of them at least. 60-70's rock, blues and jazz and classical is also pretty good.
Food... when my appetite is doing good I do love a good meal. Mainly curry and other Asian dishes but I like most things and will try anything once just not cat or dog (it'll make me really upset)

Not necessarily looking to date or even meet up (it's a big country when you feel crappy and don't drive) but it would be awesome to have someone occasionally contact me and say "Hiii, how ya doin', you good?" That'd be nice.

Have a good one.

I must admit with this illness it would be nice to speak to people that understand, I am 54 year male and I live on my yacht in Essex after recently being divorced after fifteen years of marriage and I have now lived on my own for a year on my yacht which can sound very romantic but it can get pretty lonely to and I would love to talk to some lady's for friendship . Having this illness can stop you from getting out and meeting people and soon you get to forget how to socialize and I feel like I have been a recluse for the last year so if any one feels like a chat I would love to here from you

when I suggested this meeting thread I had high hopes of it becoming popular but it would seem not ?
This is a shame really as there are a lot of people with fm who are on there own for one reason or another
and those iv'e spoke to say they feel shy and embarrassed because they suffer with fm ? I had hoped that by chatting
to fellow sufferers and maybe meeting up the one thing that would not get in the way would be the fact that our illness
affects our lives to some extent so we don't have to let that be an obstacle and can just be who we are, so far in life iv'e found the only people who remotely understand what we go through are other people with fm, well i'm still single and starting to feel a bit lonely
i'm a nice guy still have my motorbike and live in the North West between Bolton and Wigan, i would love to talk to any ladies who are also lonely and hopefully make some new friends and who knows maybe meet up,settees weren't made for one person they were made for cuddling up to your loved one on a cold winters night :-D so if you have been thinking about looking for someone new or special or even
just some new friends, stop thinking about it and do something positive, you never know who might be waiting for that pm ?
I am staying hopeful that someone might just give me a try, you never know ;-)
