Hi, Renee, and welcome to our forum!  I'm so glad you found us and popped in.  We do have a great group here so I know you will like it.
If you haven't already, check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good information about fibromyalgis there and you could learn a lot.  Also, read some back posts.  There is a world of information in them too.  Of course, don't hesitate to ask questions.  We are here to help you.
I'm glad you are here and I hope to hear more from you soon.

Hi Renee and Welcome!

Ditto on the disability nightmares- it has not been a fun year.  I was diagnosed May of 08'. Thank God I have such a wonderful family, friends and "my group" here, or I don't know where I would be!

Nice to meet you!
