Hi Sammi,

Welcome to the forum. I am sure that you will love it here. Everybody is so kind and compassionate. There is also a lot of accumulated knowledge here. I am sure that you will learn a lot. Be sure to check out the fibro101 thread. It is the second thread. There is a lot of information on there. I am sure that you will find it very resourceful.

I hope that you have a wonderful day today. Though right now it is probably later in the day for you.

Take care and keep posting, tell us more about yourself if you would like.

Hugs, Karen

Welcome Sammi!

That is such a long time to go without knowing what is going on! I know it drove me crazy when I started having pain and being so tired all the time. I also had terrible migraines that they told me was from tension.

I am glad you found us. Everyone here is like a great big family. Willing to help or chat whenever you need to. There is some really good information as you have been told. The stretching excercises in the Fibro 101 thread have really helped me.

Hope you enjoy the board and are feeling well.

Hugs!! Margie

Hi Sammi, it is so nice to meet you.  I love this site & you will too.  So many good people who can understand the issues we all have.  It is so calming to speak with people who know what you are talking about.  They can even finish our sentences when we have a bit of fog & can't find the right word.  LOL

Where abouts in England is Nottinghamshire?  I have always wanted to see England, it is such a pretty place.   Welcome & come here often.  Hugs, Denise

Hi Sammi and welcome- wow, England!

18 years! I just was diagnosed this past spring so makes me a rookie at this fibro stuff. Have you had any support during those 18 years? If not, the moderators and group here couldn't be better! Everyone genuinely cares.

Nice to meet you and join us on our daily check-ins when you can. Chutz, one of our moderators posts a different subject everyday and feel welcome to chime in!!
