Hi Equine Lover and welcome to our family. Sorry you have fibro but glad you got a dx. There is a lot of info in the second thread on first page, fibro 101.
My hubby thought he had to fix me when I got the dx of fibro. It took us both some time to get use to the idea that this can't be fixed only maintained.
Mayo Clinic has a rather simple explanation of fibro. But if you really want someone to get what it is like to live in a fibro body have them to read "The Spoon Theory", "Tears for a Day" or "Letter From Fibro". You can always invite someone to read the threads on this forum from all these people that live it everyday.
I'm glad you joined you already know how great this forum is.
luv and hugs
