Hi Chicky and welcome. And yes, you can jump right in if it doesn't cause you too much pain. :D

There is a thread somewhere around here, if one of us can remember where it was laid, that people have used to introduce themselves. They also have started their own threads to make their introductions. There's a ton of information here namely in the second listing called Fibro 101. If you haven't already perused the information there you might want to. It contains suggestions on all different kinds of things from nutrition, gentle stretching, and just simply all around useful stuff.

I'm sure that one of our official welcome wangon-ers will be along shortly and say their hellos - along with the others - as well. I'm still pretty new here but have found a great group of people that have been a huge help to me already. I hope you are able to find what you're looking for here.

chuzzle....can I just tell you that I absolutely adored the quote in your signature the first time that I saw it. It's more true than any one ever knows till they've been there.

tongue  Piercings and Chuzzle, It's very nice to be welcomed so quickly! Thank you!  I have had Fibromyalgia for...well, who knows how long!!  Of course the diagnosis actually came when the Doctors got sick and tired of me telling them that contrary to their opinions I was in fact not in need of a Phycologist.
    
     I now for the most part, have a good group of Doctors other than my primary will changed shortly. The fill in Doc is trying to go back into the dark ages and is suggesting I see a Phycologist!  My blood pressure took a jump for sure.  I won't go into a long story except to say when I do get a replacement I will have to undo damage he has caused by putting his silly opinions on my record.
 
     I am a 52 year young woman, I look great, feel rotten! You know how that goes.I have FMS, probable Sjogrens, spondylosis in my neck(causing my spinal cord to be flattened a bit...ouchy and scary), Interstitial Cystitis,seizures, and Osteoporosis which I receive injections for. Is that it?  Think so!  Oh..the internist says I probably have another yet to be determined connective tissue disorder.
 
     I am on dissability and keep myself busy with sewing.  I make very unusual bed covers and wall hangings and love it.  I am a firm beleiver in pampering yourself, and others.
 
    Well, I have not talked about myself like this in a long time!  Thank you again and I look forward to getting to know you!!   ~~Chicky
Laugh, Love, Listen and Learn......Chicky

Hi Chicky and Welcome!

I too am a 52 year young woman and look great and body feels rotten- You've got plenty going on but sounds like you have a very positive attitude!

You've come to the right place for support- they are the "best" here.

Your bed covers and wall hangings sound so interesting, how did you get started?

Hi Chicky,

Welcome to the fibromyalgia forum. You sound like a very out going person, so I think that you will really like it here. And as Sherrine said, duck when the chicken jokes come your way. We try to laugh a lot. It is good for the soul and everything else.

Yes, we have chat rooms. You will notice at the top of the page in the second blue strip it will say chat. All you do is click on ther and it will take you there. You can pick any room actually. Often people chat in what ever is available. But there is a fibromyalgia chat room for those who want to use it. There is not any set time, use it whenever you want.

I hope to hear more from you. As was said, there is an itroduction thread called 'who's who in the land of fibrofog'. You can post on there if you want or start a thread of your own like you have just done.

I wish for you the most wonderful day. And again 'welcome'.

Hugs, karen
