Sometimes when you post for the first time on a thread that has been started a lot of people don't see you so I'm starting one just for you.

I hope I'm doing this right.

I just joined, but I've had fibro for roughly 10 years. Some days it seems I'm fine, then I'll get cold chills and the pains and fatigue starts again. It's frustrating because I never know until I get up what I'll feel like, and that makes it hard to plan things, especially like baby sitting my two very active grandchildren.

I'm 62 and happily married and feel fortunate to be able to work from home.

I hope to become more knowledgeable about managing my fibro. I've read a lot of articles about it, but am more confused than ever.

That's about it, I think. Thank you.

Hi Birdsong and Welcome to the family!!

I sounds like you may be able to teach us a few things too. But either way by sharing we all benefit, especially with something like fibro. I sure understand the grandchildren thing. I love having them over but the little ones leave me in such pain that it's heartbreaking.

We'll find a way together...OK?
