Hi there Alison!!
Glad you decided to join in on the forum. I know you won't be disappointed. This is the best forum there is.. but you already said that...Duh, ~FIBRO FOG HORN NOISE INSERTED HERE~
Something tells me that the future of socialized medicine won't happen here in the USA. I think we'll have several alternatives.. but I'm the positive hopeful type .. so who knows. All I know is something has to change. I see so many people on this forum and out in the world that don't have insurance and are really suffering from it. I've either been self employed or employed at a non profit and never had insurance until I married my husband 9 yrs ago. Anyway I don't think the insurance lobbiest won't allow socialized medicine.. but I don't want to get political.
I think you'll find yourself very comfortable on this forum. We do have a few members that are from Canada too. We have members from all over the place. Join in on the Koffee Klutches in the mornings. They're a great way for us to talk about stuff other than fibro and occasionally we will have a virtual party.. they're lots of fun and can get kinda crazy.
I'm sure if you've been hanging around in the background you checked out Fibro 101, the second thread on the forum, but if not, I really encourage you to refer to it. There's so much info on there and its really helpful.
Again.. welcome and I'm glad you came out of the lurking stage and decided to join us!!
