I'm so sorry that you are scared. There is so much to learn about this disorder but I promise if you stick around here you will begin to realize that everything will be ok. I went for two years, after my diagnoses, without much information and not a whole lot of support until I found this forum. I have learned so much here and feel so much better about all of the things I could not explain, seems we call have a lot in common. You will also find support with all of these wonderful people because they know what you are going through and they will not judge you. So stick around and things will be ok .
Hi big bird and Welcome!
You sound just like me six short months ago. I was so scared- and thought my life was over! Literally. I ended up with depression and was truly unable to function. Between the depression and the pain it was almost unbearable. Now I can sit here, writing this to you and tell you that life is "good" again and that we can live with fibro- just in a different way than what we are used to.
The most important thing I have learned is you are not ALONE! This wonderful support group played the biggest part on where I am today. They were my strength when I had none.
I also read on fibro until my eyes were crossing- and still continue to learn. Keep posting and in time things will get better- I promise!
Nice to meet you!
