Hi to all the newbies I have missed and :welcome: to the forum :wave: Sarah just a quickie, you really need to find a new doc as Loubie said, cos I think you need help coming to term with things. Have you been offered any of the talking therapies??? or a pain clinic etc??

Thought I would update a few details about myself. I started as a member on this site way back in 2005. I have illnesses on illnesses one of which is fibromyalgia. I am now 58 years of age, married with 2 grown up daughters, one of which has fibromyalgia. I am grandmother to 2 adorable children aged 5 years and 3 years of age. I am married to a wonderfull man who unfortunately has not been well for the last few years. I live in Lancashire, in a very cold and very wet place. I try to have a positive outlook on life though as we all know this isn't always possible, but we do try don't we. I have seen people come and go on the site some not so good and some truly wonderful people. I myself have had times when I have not been in a position to post for whatever reason, but have found whenever I return there are always wonderful people like yourselves willing and wanting to offer support to other fibromites. I look forward to getting to know everyone and to hopefully helping others in whatever way I can :-D .................Pauline

Hi my name is Catherine, i'm new to this forum so not quite sure how to go about things :oops: so thought an introduction would be in order. I am 57 years old, married with two grown up children, 4 grand children and a gorgeous little jack russell dog. I have had fibromyalgia for 13 years but was ill for several years before the doctors told me what was causing all my symptons. I also have osteo arthritis in my feet, knees, one hip and my hands. At the moment I am feeling quite low because of not being able to do the things around the house that need doing, and being almost bed bound for several days after trying to do too much. :( I also feel quite isolated as i live in Redcar North Yorkshire, and my children and grandchildren live in Darlington which is about 30 miles away and as i don't drive i usually have to rely on the train to get across to see them. Anyway that is why I decided to go on line and find a forum to join, to meet other people in similar situations and nattter with them. My hobbies include digital photography, patchwork and quilting, and machine embroidery. so here goes with my first post :-)

:wave: :wave: pauline and :welcome: :welcome: back :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Hopefully you'll find that we're still as informative, supportive, friendly and :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: as when you were last on here :penguin: :penguin: :penguin:

There have been a good number of members who have come and gone whilst I've been on here as well, and like you have found, some of them were rather special. And we also get our fair share of the not so special ones :-? :-? :-? :-?

Hope to see you around the boards :chicken-dance: :chicken-dance: :chicken-dance:

:wave: :wave: Catherine and :welcome: to the forum :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Don't worry too much about not being sure how to go about things on here, there's usually someone around who can help, and it doesn't seem to take too long for people to find their way around on here :wave: :wave:

You're not alone in feeling low about not being able to do things, I think most of us have had similar times :( :( :( We have a topic with helpful sites listed on it, the latest post on it has helped the poster find some ideas about how to make household chores a bit easier, maybe it could be worth looking at to see if there is something on there that could be of help to you. Here's the linky to the topic viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12519

As you find you way around the boards, you'll see that there is a lot of info and advice on here, as well as support for each other as well all understand what this rotten condition puts us thru each day :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm

We have a craft section on here as there are quite a few creative people on here, so if you wanted to share anything about your creative hobbies with us, it would be lovely to hear about them :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Anything you're wondering about or want to know about, all you need to do is ask about it and we'll try to help you with it :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

:wave: :wave: and :welcome: Bob :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

With you being a carer, you may find this linky and the book you can download from it interesting http://www.fibromyalgia-support.net/book/ The author cares for his wife, who has FM, and it's about the different things they have experienced while living with FM, so there may be some helpful bits in there for both you and your wife :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: There is also a lot of info and advice on the forum as well.

If there's anything either you or you wife want to know, all you need to do is ask and we'll try to help you with it :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Hi All, my name is Pam, I am nearly 48 years old, and I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia as recently as last Thursday, but have had it undiagnosed, since about 2007. I am head housekeeper at a private school in Scotland, happily married for nearly 22 years, have 1 beautiful daughter, aged 20, and a gorgeous tabby cat, Rajah. I love reading, hoping for a kindle in my birthday, as holding up books can be a bit of a pain, but don't do a lot of handiwork although I'd love to be able to sew my own clothes, etc. I also love to relax in front of the telly watching a good movie, or a documentary, crime show, etc. My fibromyalgia was undiagnosed in spite of my constant returns to the GP about the pain - it's like it never crossed their minds. Numerous blood tests were taken that revealed nothing untoward , and I got to the point where I felt that perhaps it was just all in my mind. But some days the pain was so bad, and I was so miserable, that my hubby convinced me to take one last shot at the doctors. The doctor could see that I was really battling that day and so referred me to the rheumatologist who, after some questions and a brief examination where he pressed all the painful areas, said it was fibro. I was so relieved to have a name to this pain and now feel that I can cope a bit better knowing what it is all about. Also, it's good to know that I am not going mental and that it is just brainfog. Of course, it doesn't help that I have just started menopause as well!!! LOL!!!! But never mind, just got to get on with it I suppose. Looking forward to meeting you all, and learning more about how we all get through our days!!! :-D
