Brecon Area

Postby The Listen Lady » Thu Jan 01, 2009 3:43 pm

Hi. I'm Stevie and I live in Trecastle a small village off the A40. I'm looking for friends & contacts in South Wales. I'm 56, married with two dogs and a selectively deaf geriatric cat. I've posted on p6 "sticky" but hoped a new thread would be noticed more. I've had fibro for several years, but had a really hard time getting a diagnosis as my old doctor didn't believe it exsisted! I knew I had it though 'cos my daughter does and my symptoms were worse than hers.

Love to hear from anyone in my area.

Hi Stevie & welcome, although I see you've been a member for a while.

I know there are several Welsh Fibro sufferers on here & another forum, (in fact it seems to be a bit of a fibro hot spot!) so I'm sure you will find people who are fairly close to you.

Hope you are fairly well at the moment & a happy new year to you!

Hi Gill.
Thanks for your reply. I'm feeling pretty crap at the moment & finding it difficult to get my brain to work. Getting ready to go out is taking masses of effort so I've not been bothering. Because of this I've become more aware of how good it would be to meet people who would understand my need not to make too many tiring arrangements, & how isolated I've become living in the country. I'd like to start a group in Brecon or Llandovery but I don't have any idea how many people could travel this far. What do you think?

Have a look here http://www.fibromyalgia-associationuk.o ... iew/16/34/ you could advertise in the local papers asking for people willing to go. Unfortunately I don't drive apart from round town so it would be too far for me but there are others who do so it may well be worth a go.

Advertise on as many sites as you can find as well. See how many people respond and go from there.

Hi I am in the Mid wales area and I am severely affected by Fibro/CFS and newly diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. Until I became ill I used to be a very busy lady, multi-tasking, many hobbies, walking my 2 dogs, a GSD and a Jack Russell cross, in the Elan Valley and around the dams most days with my friend and her 2 dogs - 5-10 miles was normal. Now it takes me all my time to stagger into the field next to the house and throw toys for the dogs to retrieve for 10 minutes. However, I have somehow managed to retain my sense of humour. My motto is, "I don't want any antidepressants, thank you. I am not depressed, I am just p***ed off!"
Does that ring any bells with anyone? Chizlib

I too am frm the Brecon area, but have been fortunate enough to find two absolutely brill female gps who have been very sympathetic and one of which actually refered me to to a CFS specialist who finally diagnosed me after many years of pain and heartache and thinking I had lost the plot.
I also have two spaniels who do not get the walks they deserve and unfortunately I had to give up my horses as I could not ride or look after them any longer. Altho I have been diagnosed for around 7yrs I still dont realy accept it and fight it and can get myself into trouble when iv overdone it which is why I am here today. Having one of the worst flareups Iv had in a few years and feeeling sorry for myself............ but will get over it as usual
