Hello, my name is Silverbee, I am 45 years old and have been suffering from FM for quite a while now, if what I read it correct about this horrible illness, its old name was Fibrositis, for which I remember being told that I had when I was little and unable to walk down the stairs in the morning, without crying in pain !! and over the years as I have grown into this prematurely old body that I now find I am trapped in, I find on looking back that I have had many, many instances of this overwhelming pain, at intervals along the way, until I now find myself, in a state of pain and fog that I find hard to deal with at times. Anyhow....that's enough moaning about it.. unfortunately I don't work, I have a beautiful 14 year old daughter, that I adore, and is so much of a help to me, I have two dogs, two cats and five chickens. I am divorced and currently and probably permanently single now, I was living with someone but he had a massive stroke and I can no longer look after him and he has moved back with his parents so his family can care for him. I have two sisters, one of whom doesn't believe I have a thing wrong with me, but hey, we all have someone like that, just see how they would like it and cope if they had it.....I live in the Nottingham area, and although I am looking forward to meeting new people on here, I would love to possibly meet up with people in Nottingham to meet new friends.. Well I suppose I had better go now before I bore you all, and thank you for allowing me to tell you a little about myself.....Hope to hear from you soon xxxxxx

You're in good company on here, we all understand what this condition can do to us so we try to help and support each other by sharing our experiences and info and advice that may be beneficial to others finding themselves in similar situations.

Fibrositis is what FM used to be called, and like you, quite a few of us have had various symptoms and aspects of the condition appear and floor us over a number of years :( :( :(

Anything you're wondering about, just ask about it and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:

Hi Silverbee
Sorry to hear about you fibro, pain in the posterior, isn't it. I am 56 years old and had FM for at least 10 years. Unfortunately the group for people with FM that met in Nottingham, hasn't been successful, I don't think it exists anymore. I live 5 miles outside of Nottingham. If you'd like to meet for coffee sometime, ive posted my tel number on control panel (top left) under private messages. I have a few friends with FM you could meet them 2 maybe. Sorry I haven't posted for a while, haven't been on site.
