Hello littlepetal :welcome: to the forum :wave:

There is a lot of advice and info on here, if you have a look thru some of the posts you could find some answers to questions you'll no doubt have. And you can always ask about anything you're unsure about, we'll try to help you with it.

For trying to explain what FM is like to family, friends and work colleagues, have a look at threads called "One for the Non Believers" and "The Spoon Theory", people have found that getting others to read then helps to get across an idea of what FM is like to live with.

FM is covered under the Equalities Act, which replaced the Disability Discrimination Act, so the hospital where you work should be able to have a look at your duties and see what they can do to help make things better for you. You'll probably need to talk with someone to start things off.

Support wise for you, there could be an FM support group in your area where you could meet up with fellow fibromites, and we do all we can to support each other on the forum as well. For help that you might need, there could be some local organisations that could give you some advise as to what might be available.

As I said, anything you want to know, just ask and we'll try to help you with it :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either
