You have many years up on me, so I can't say I know what you are going through, but I know you will figure it out. This is a whole new adventure for you moving to the cities here and I give you many gentle pats on the back for what you are doing already.
Moving to a new city/state can be very stressful. You are meeting a whole new group of people and adapting to your new surroundings. It takes time to feel comfortable.
This is just another stage in your life you are going through, granted, with it is fibro but we adapt. You will get through this transition! And remember we are here to help with that!
You talk in your post about what you have achieved and the issues you overcame to get where you are today. You are a strong person & will get thru this next change. Take each day at a time. People will get to know you as each day goes on. You don't need a new identity, you are perfect as you are.
I understand that you fear starting over and finding something that you can handle, but I think it will all come together. You just need to stop worrying and do as you've always done. It is always so stressful to make a big move or change in your life, but in the end things always seem to work out.
Remember others have their own fears or issues they are dealing with. They are just like us, so there is no need to worry about meeting people and as time goes by they will learn of your issues. That will just happen. I wish you luck and happiness in your new place and remember your fibro family will never move, we'll be right here when you need us.
Never regret something that made you smile!
