PS I just wanted to let you know that I live a very happy and active life and I have learned I am not my illness, I am still me!

Don't be scared..you are not alone and the dx is at least a validation of your pain. I have been dx for 2.5 years, but have had fibro all my life. Labeled as a hypochondriac for most of it, then ignoring the condition for fear of not being believed. I am completely disabled, but most people are still able to work and have a very fulfilling life. There are alot of options out there for you, medically, physically and mentally. I encourage you to try every option you are given and there is a very good chance that you will find a combo that will work for you. Think positive and explore your options. Sending you good thoughts and wishing you a pain free day
