Hello I'm a newbie

Postby Sazzle » Sun Sep 11, 2011 9:53 pm

:shock:

Will try and behave. I have read the rules and seems similar to the forum I help mod.

My name is Sarah, I am a healthcare assistant working in mental health where I have worked for 15 years total. I am married (9 years) no kids. More of a desire to get a cat than kids.

I think I have Fibro and my GP agrees it is very likely. Luckily Hubby's best friend in the US has Fibro too, ok not lucky for her but it means i have someone I know well I can ask advice from. I landed here as being on a UK site is probably best for info about drugs and treatment.

Hope to find out some useful stuff here and make some new friends.

Just finished 3 12 hour days so am feeling a little low on spoons but not as low as I can be. Got an understanding boss who has just been educated in the spoon theory.

My personal revelation recently has been a Kindle. I find it much easier to read a Kindle than a book. Think it is the grey background makes it easier or something. Being quite light sensitive the grey is just kinder right?

Thanks Loubie

Is there any way to change the look of the forum? the forum I help mod is a proboards one and you can have different "skins" or something. I have found lately that reading on a background that is not pure white is easier for me. Just wondered as can't see anything in the user control panel bit. Feel free to pm me with instructions.

:welcome: to the forum Sazzle :wave: :wave:

This is forum is phpBB powered and I haven't come across any ways to change the appearance/skins in the time I've been on here.

There is a lot of info on here, as loubie has already said, and we're a friendly bunch who try to help and support each other thru the rubbish FM throws at us.

Are you being referred to a Rheumatologist or other specialist for a definite dx, or is your GP confident enough to do that. Had you had any tests done to see if there is anything else potentially causing you your symptoms before FM was mentioned as a possible cause???

Hi Sarah
Welcome to the forum, I too have found the awesomeness of a kindle (though it's the app on my phone) but it makes reading books so much easier as I found holding books too painful for my wrists.

I've recently joined this forum too and it's such a nice place with lots of advice, info and a good place to rant and moan if you need too.


Sending gentle hugs to my fellow fibromites x
Lindsay

JUST BECAUSE I LOOK NORMAL TO YOU IT DOESN'T MEAN I AM NOT IN PAIN OR BEING LAZY!

I have had tons of blood tests, my thyroid is getting paranoid the number of checks on it! I have had all the usual tests plus all the inflammation marker ones, plus tests by an allergy specialist to rule out auto immune stuff like Lupus. At least my GP believes me and doesn't go on about exercise and stuff.
