I've been typing with one hand since I joined the forum because my left arm was in a sling. Saw the doctor today and got clearance to start using my arm again, so hallelujah, here I am!!!
I promised to introduce myself properly when I could type again, so here goes. I'm 56, female, live in New York City with my husband, no kids but two wonderful nieces. I was dx'd with fibro in 2003 and went out on full disability shortly after that. I am completely disabled and unable to work, cook, clean, shop, etc. Fortunately, my husband has always done the cooking and shopping, so I am blessed!
I also have bad migraines. For almost two years I was getting severe migraines on average 5 or 6 days a week. The cause was menopause hormone swings and they have recently eased up, thank god.
As I've mentioned, I also have IBS and that was really bad even before the fibro hit. It's now almost fully controlled, again, thank god.
I had been looking for a fibro forum for awhile, and finally found this one. It seems like a great place, and now that I can type again, I'm looking forward to participating even more!
