Hi Oregon mom and welcome to the family. Your attitude will take you far with fibro. I work on that daily, concentrating on the good in my life and not the bad. Some days are a challenge though.
I have a sister that takes neurontin for diabetic neuropathy and it helps her a lot.
There are many that are fighting more than one illness. Fibro intensifies the pain of other things. I have osteoarthristis in my hands and my rheumy said the other day fibro makes it feel worse than it would without the fibro.
This is a great forum and the accumulative knowledge on here is more than you will find anywhere. Ask questions, read and vent when you need to.
luv and hugs
