I just registered today and wanted to say hi to everyone here. I have been diagnosed with fibro for the last 10 years but I think I have had it alot longer than that. I no longer work due to the fibro and chronic fatigue that I have. I also am caregiver to my husband who has Multiple Schlerosis. I dont know how much I will be posting but I enjoy reading the message boards to learn new things. I will post if I feel I can help.
Thanks smurf

Hi Sotired and welcome to the 'family'!
I'm so glad you posted, just sorry that you have to deal w/ this DD. I know you said you weren't working, but being a caretaker is a FULL time job. I'm sure your DH appreciates your loving care.
After having this 'fun' Fibro for more than 10 yrs, I'm sure you have much that you can share w/ us. But w/ all your responsibilities I know time can be limited. I hope you will come visit often, there are a lot of good ppl here always willing to share info, kindness and a shoulder. When you get a chance, check out Fibro 101, on the top of the page. Sherrine compiled a lot of info that many members shared and it is a good read.
Hope you have a good evening, get some rest.
God bless.  Alice.

Hi, Sotired, and welcome.  I'm glad you found us and joined our family.  You do have a lot on your plate but you can learn a lot just by reading.  If you haven't already, be sure to check out Fibro 101...the second thread on the forum.  There is a lot of good info in there and you might find things to help you.
I'm glad you are here and post whenever you have a chance.  Have a good day!

Thank you all for the warm greetings. Will post when I can and it will be nice to make new friends. I dont leave the house often and the internet is pretty much my link to the outside world.
