Hi there IHW!!!
I remember your husband posting on the forum about a month or so ago. He was very concerned about you and he wanted to know more about Fibromyalgia. I can't tell you how happy I am that you chose to join us here on the forum. We were all very concerned about you, as well, and we didn't even know you. You'll find that this to be a wonderful forum with very caring people that know exactly what you are going through and will have lots of advice. Everyone on the forum admired your husband's need to know more and calls for help. Many of the folks on the forum would love it if our husbands would do some homework and learn more.
Sometimes all of us feel kinda sick and tired of being sick and tired so we have little cyber parties and we have a morning Koffee Klatch that has a different non fibro related topic everyday.. so feel free to join in on those as well.. we really try to laugh in the adversity of having this horrible syndrome.
I'm sure lots of other "fibro family members" will be along to greet you. We all have different ways to deal with our fibro and I know you'll learn a lot and make some great friends along the way.
So welcome!!!! And please keep posting!! Oh and DO check out Fibromyalgia 101.. the second thread on the forum, it's extremely helpful and can teach you some very valuable coping skills.
Until later.. hugs for now!!
Hi, I am new here as well as newly diagnosed. Welcome - they're a nice lot around here! I was a lurker for a few months while I was getting tested and tested for everything under the sun; now that I have a diagnosis I find it really helpful to read what others with FM are going thru so I don't feel so alone.
Hi Hubby's wife and Welcome!
I remember your hubby coming to the site too and how concerned he was. Bless his heart, and yours. My fibro hit me like an atomic bomb a little over a year ago, so I can relate. And I figured out real fast too that the fibro is different everyday and that we have to take this one day at a time. It was an adjustment. Now, it's seems normal to me to think that way.
So glad you jumped aboard and I know you will like the group here! Nice to meet you!
