Hi Niece and welcome. No, thank God, my DH does not have fibro. He is beginning to have his share of aches and pains as he gets older though. It must be hard with both of you suffering from this.

I'm glad you joined and read the fibro 101 thread at the top of the first page it contains lots of great info. We are family here so hope you and your husband will join in.

luv and hugs

Marlee

Hi Niece I wanted to welcome you to the forum. You will find alot of caring and supportive
people here. Sorry that both you and your hubby have fibromyalgia. My hubby doesn't
have fibro but has been a great support to me. I have been lucky to have wonderful
support from both family and friends, it helps to know people are understanding and go
out of their way to accomadate me. I know I am very blessed and am very appreciative.

I am glad you have found our fibro family. Hope you will keep posting!

Hugs

My husband is healthy & he is unable to understand.

My step father is very understanding for my mother. She loves my husband as a SIL & she understands but at the same time she tells me that she doesn't know how she wld make it if her husband was uncaring.

Mine will get better w/age.

I'm sorry for u & ur husband. If my hubby had it 2 our house wld b condemned. :). I'm just kidding but he has to do the big jobs for me, after they sit for a while

From reading it seems likeu two have found the good in your combination despite being ill. I admire that.

Hi Neice!

And Welcome to our fibro family. We'd also love to have your hubby join us. Not too many men have fibro but we do have some and we appreciate every one of them. They can add a different take on the disorder.

My hubby is fairly healthy. He does have gout but it's mostly controlled with diet and some medications. Arthritis is getting him in a few places so when the weather gets cold or changes drastically he gets very achy. But even if he didn't have any pains at all he's be totally supportive and understanding. How do I know this? Because when I was first diagnosed with one disorder after another and then fibromyalgia he was right beside me all the way including going to doctor appointments with me. I do know that I'm very fortunate. I can hardly fathom spouses and 'friends' of fibros who are cruel and mouthy to those in pain. If they don't like being around us, then go away and leave us alone. There are TRUE friends who DO understand and are supportive.

I don't know that we have any members where both spouses have fibro but who knows...I do hope you find the support and friendship you are looking for here. Most people who come find that it's a wonderful place for them. I'm here for the long haul.

Hugs,
Chutzie
