:welcome: to our FibroFamily Catherine :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

I've jiffled you over to here with this being your intro post as it's a more suitable part of the forum. It's good to hear you feel better for knowing what it is you're dealing with. Don't be surprised if, in the next few days, you feel yourself becoming a little down, or angry, or frustrated tho. It seems to be a part of the process that most of us go thru as the realisation of what FM is, and that it is with us for the long haul, starts to sink in. It doesn't happen to everyone tho, so you may escape it, if you do feel a bit like this tho, just go bit~by~bit and it will start to settle again :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:

Have a looky and a read around the boards when you get a mo, they are full of all sorts of info and advice and experiences that members have shared. There is a lot of support as well as we each understand what others are going thru.

Anything that you're wondering about, don't be afraid to ask about it, and we'll try to help you with an answer :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Hi Catherine, welcome aboard, you have made the right choice joining the forum. It's a great way of gaining support and reading others posts, a good way to learn stuff. Also as time goes by I'm sure you will add invaluable words :) I was also told I had depression, I keep saying if I can control the pain I will not be low.

Look forward to hearing more from you xx

Hi Catherine

I am still in the process of seeing health professionals all who have said I have FM, it such a relief to know whats wrong with me which like yourself makes you feel better. For a couple of years I've been thinking its all in my head but know I know im not mad :crazy:

Its great that this forum is here and having support and knowing that we're not alone makes a difference

Take care

Sarah

Hello Catherine, welcome! Likeyourself I'm newly diagnosed and it was a relief to know what was wrong even though there's no magic cure! :-D
There are these three things that remain: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is LOVE.
