I am new here, but not new to Fibro...dx 20 years ago at age 37. Been through hell and back, like most of you. I am married, have three grown sons, 3 young grandsons, two sisters and friends and I have yet to find anyone who really seems to "get it". So often, I feel as if I am talking to a wall. I've pretty much given up trying to talk to anyone about this, even though there are times when you just want to vent. This is the first time in 20 years that I feel I have found people that do understand and it is an awesome feeling. I'm so glad I found you!!

I know what you mean MT Lady. I can't believe I've been on here for a year already. This forum was a godsend for me.
I also have three grown sons. I have more grandchildren than you do.
This is a case of takes one to know one. No matter how you explain it to people they don't get it. You have to live in a fibro body to know what it is like.
luv and hugs

Thanks so much! It really means a lot to me, to have your support. I've been married for over 28 years and I know my husband loves me, but I also know he doesn't want to hear about my pain. Oh, he says he does want to hear, but I can see it on his face, and I don't think I'm being paranoid. He along with everyone else, simply don't believe it, or maybe they are just tired of hearing about it. I really do try not to complain to them too much, but there are times, it just gets the best of me. Most of the time, I can cope with the pain. I have a wonderful doctor that has worked with me for 20 years. I do take Vicoprofen for the pain and it helps me to manage the pain. Pain never seems to go away, always with me, like a faithful companion...some companion, huh?? tongue   The fatigue, on the other hand, gets the best of me. I try to exercise daily, usually take a walk; I have three dogs, so they are a wonderful motivation, or I use an elliptical trainer, which is great for giving my joints a break. I've been trying to read some of the posts and see the information on malic acid, which I have been taking for years, but realize from reading the posts here that I am not taking enough, so as of today, I am taking more...thanks so much for that!  I take so many supplements, you'd think I was running a nutritional store from my office! Well, I digress... again, thanks so much for the warm welcome and making me feel like a part of you.
