Wow, you've been thru alot! Sounds like you have some good support with dh, mom, & aunt. That is good and now you have us! It is really hard to explain Fibro to the others who just don't understand and so I stopped trying.
The 2nd thread from top "Fibro 101" is a good thread to read. Many good things in there including some great stretching exercises. Now that you are no longer in denial and know what is going on, you can move forward and start learning about all the great ways to live with Fibro.
I'm sure more of our veteran members will be with you shortly and have some great advice. They always word everything much better and think of things I don't. Guess that is why they are the veteran's!
It is very nice to meet you and hope to talk more.
Never regret something that made you smile!

Hello Aimee and welcome to the forum!! Also would like to give my best wishes to your recent wedding. I cant really add anything except my welcome. The fibro 101 post will help you so much.
Hi Aimee and Welcome-
Congratulations on your marriage, your husband sounds like a gem. Oh so young, I just got fibro late last winter and I am 52. We have many young ones here (sad, but true) that you will be able to relate to.
Having a support group helps me daily- and they are the best here. I try too to have a positive attitude everyday, but sometimes it just wears on you and I think that is just being human. Be gentle on yourself- you did not ask for this, and your just doing the best you can.
It was nice to meet you!
