Hello all.  I just registered today but have been coming here and reading posts for a few weeks.  Everyone seems so knowledgeable and helpful.  I have learned alot just from reading posts here.  I was diagnosed in 2002.  It's nice to know this forum is here and there are people here who understand.

Be sure to check out the fibro 101 forum, the 1st thread on page one. It has some very
good information .
