Hello from Staffordshire!

Postby Shellyq » Thu Nov 15, 2012 12:30 pm

Hello,

My name is Shelly, I am 30 years old, I live in Staffordshire and I have had Fibromyalgia Syndrome for about 11 years. I have found I have tried lots of treatment options over the years and probably over the last year have been the worst I have ever been. That is not to say the treatments I have previously experienced didn't work very well, but I find the ones that work cost a lot and are not available on the NHS. I once had a lot of control over it and I feel due to other events in my life I lost it! That's why after living in a different country, working for a sports medicine centre and a doctor's surgery having tried a lot of these options and being really interested in nutrition, diet and exercise I am starting a support group which is something that is lacking in my area.

I thought it was nice when I received a letter from my doctor asking me to recommend a book to another patient and if we could meet so we could discuss things. If I were to explain my whole journey to where I am now, I'd be here for ages, I once wrote an article for the FMA magazine, but the article is no longer online. You can find out a little bit more about me here - http://womenandfibromyalgia.com/2010/01 ... d-singing/ when I was asked for an interview by Barbara Keddy, a Canadian nurse a author of the book "Women and Fibromyalgia". I would love anyone in the area to get in touch to join the group!

:welcome: to the forum Shelly :wave: :wave: :wave:

It's fantastic to hear you're setting up a new support group :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: This linky takes you to the Support Groups page on UKFMs site http://www.ukfibromyalgia.com/fm-suppor ... roups.html There you can add details of your group to the lists of others across the country. There is also a linky relating to applying for FM Support Group funds that you may want to have a look at.

There is lots of info across the forum, so have a look round and make yourself at home :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Hi Lauhar & welcome. I've only been on here a short time & have found people who really care & give lots of support, to say nothing of a shoulder to cry on when needed.
Good to meet you.
