Hello All

Hello everyone

I'm 21 and was diagnosed with fibro just over a year ago, it's taken me this long to accept the diagnosis and I've finally plucked up the courage to join here and learn more about it. I have had fibro a lot longer than my diagnosis, mainly due to doctors putting symptoms down to being a child and then being a teenager, my rheumatologist agrees, after tracing back to the beginning of the problems, that I have had it for around 10 years. As I've said I've only just accepted it all and decided not to let it get me down and learn about it as much as I can.

I'm a carer for my partner who also has fibro, M.E and other health issues. Our daily life can get quite interesting if we're both having a bad day! We have 3 cats and 1 dog who brighten our days. I don't really know what else to put, I'm terrible at introductions, so will leave it here with saying I'm looking forward to being an active member of this forum :-)
