Hi want to make friends ( swansea wales)

Hi everyone I am in Swansea, South Wales and really want to make some new friends. I am 25 years old, I love animals and I make and sell jewellery. I am a bit of an animal rights activist (nothing crazy like chaining myself to posts) lol. I am engaged have been for many years but my illness is putting me off getting married for now due to the energy of planning etc. So that is a little bit about myself :).

Hi there,

Just wanted to say hi to you both. Hope your not in too much pain. If you are both interested in meeting new fibro friends in cyber space, then please let me know if you would like to join our fb group. A page has been set up for fibro sufferers in the South West area. So far, we have members from Wales, Bridgwater, Taunton & Bristol. We are all a friendly bunch & advice is offered to those seeking it. The group was set up as members of a UK Fibro Facebook page were interested in meeting fellow sufferers in the area. So if you would like to join the page & meet new friends who also suffer with this chronic condition, please let me know x

Hi gypsy doll, nice to meet you!

Sorry to hear that you have been suffering with fibro for so long. I was only diagnosed last year & am still getting used to being in pain every day. It's been an uphill struggle for me to see drs who will actually listen to me when i tell them about my symptoms. Hope you have a nice weekend & i look forward to getting to know you. Hope you have a pain free weekend x

From Swansea too. I go to local support groups and find that a real help. We meet up outside the group too... There are a few who do jewellery, too.....so you'll have other things in common! Pm me for more info. Take care

Hi

I'm in Swansea too. I'm much older than you as I'm 52 but I make jewellery too and love animals. We foster parrots for a bird refuge and all the cats and dogs we've had over the years have mostly been rescued.

I have two grandsons aged 5 and 2 as well.

Kath :-D

Hi

I know these posts are old but I am in Swansea too. I am both old and new to fibro, was diagnosed at 12 but symptoms subsided until a few years ago and now at 41 it's back with a vengeance :(

Hi jaffasmum
You post tonight took me back to a long post I posted just last week....on Relapse years later

That is exactly what happened to me....I had strong symptoms in my 30 's....had to give up my job after struggling for 3 years but after 2 years at home I slowly got better and was able to return to my job in accountancy.

However there were a few hiccups...but I always managed to get back on track....enjoying my job, my family, travelling , etc etc,until aged 49 I got a nasty throat virus followed by a very sudden and debilitating menopause....and that started everything off again....just this time I am now aged 64 and still struggling, 15 years on......not so lucky to go into remission again.

It is interesting to learn from others on here what has happened to us a long the way

I hope you are having a pain free time as possible....pain is awful....but sometimes I find the fatigue very hard to cope with also.

Gilly x
