I joined another fibro forum aswell and i hated it,, this is the best run,friendliest site and i wouldn't go elswhere now anytime i have aasked for advise on here i have been given it to the best of the persons knowledge and when you are feeling down you are guaranteed to be cheered up on here. I am on fb a lot but only a handful of my friends suffer from fibro most of which are on here aswell so it isn't quite the same....i am so glad i found here or i would be in a love me jacket by now :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :grouphug: :grouphug:

I am only new here but I empathise with what has been said about the "my dad is bigger than your dad" syndrome that occurs on many different types of forums, which is a real shame because we all just want a little bit of support sometimes so to have to jump through hoops to get it is just wrong :cry:

However, if it wasn't for a great friend on another forum, I wouldn't have heard about this one, so win win :mrgreen: It's often the case that things said online are misconstrued because we cannot speak to the other person face to face and therefore the context of a message can be misinterpreted and on the flip side sometimes, people can be insensitive due to the medium of communication? I think what it does show us, is that although one thing we say will be taken one way by one person, it will be taken completely differently by another. Still, it's always about where you feel most comfortable and that is the beauty of having choice xx

Hi denys, thanks for the changes, I dont mind at all, You were completely right in your reasons as it has got much more of a response. I did think the title meds wasn't the right one but after i did it i didn't know how to change it. :oops:

It's been great reading everyone's postings and i feel somewhat vindicated now in my thinking, especially after reading Fluffy puppies one which summed up exactly how i feel ( I've also had similar problems on forums totally unrelated to health, such a s a paranormal discussion one ) I was beginning to think there was either something about me which rubbed people up the wrong way or i was being overly sensitive and paranoid, but i can see now that i am not the only one who has experienced certain forum heirarchies.
Anyhow, I think i'll just stick to this forum for fibro talk, i mean why have :banghead: when you can have [chocolate] :wine: and :grouphug:
