Hi, and welcome!  I saw your post in another thread and it was getting lost there.  I see that you are only 13 years old and that so bad that you have this illness, especially that young!  But, we are here to help you.  I have had fibromyalgia for 22 years and have lived a full and enjoyable life with it.  We have some members that have had it their whole lives!  We will help you learn how to work around fibro to continue to do things you really want to do.
 
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to a lot of good information about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot.  The more you know and understand this illness, the better you will learn how to cope with it.
 
Also, read back posts.  There is a ton of information in them too.  And don't hesitate to ask questions.  We are here to help you!
 
I'm so glad that you found us and joined in!  We do have wonderful members that love to help one another and, as a bonus, we really do care about each other, too.  So join in the conversations and we will help you learn to live a good life with fibromyalgia.  I hope to hear more from you soon.

Hi Burning Black Rose, and welcome to the forum.  You will meet lots of great caring people here.  Please feel free to ask questions.

I'm sorry you have Fibro at such a young age.  I didn't really develop fibro until my 30's, but I've had health problems since I was in my teens. I started with my first kidney stone at age 15 (with at least one per year since then), and I had my first surgery for endometriosis when I was just 18.  I've had lots of other health problems since then, but I won't bore you with all of that. wink

My point in telling you these things is just to let you know that even with yucky stuff like fibro, you can go on to live a pretty normal, active life.  I've been in pain every day since I was 18 (starting with the severe endometriosis), but I finished high school, graduated from college, got married, and had a baby (who is now older than you :-) ). 

Living with any chronic illness isn't easy, but you can still have a wonderful, full life in spite of it.  You will just have to learn how to manage it, and that will come with a little time and experience dealing with it.

Take care of yourself.

I want to make sure you see this post, Burning Black Rose.  The thread you posted on has been deleted so no one would see you there. 
 
We do have some teenagers on this forum so I'm sure they will jump in to help, too.

Hi Burning Black Rose and welcome. Being 13 is hard enough without having fibro but we will be here for you to help you deal with fibro. I have a granddaughter going on 13 that doesn't have fibro but has many problems herself to deal with so I kinda understand what it is like being 13 and not feeling normal or like all the other girls your age. We do have other teens on here so I hope they can help you too.
 
luv and hugs
