Hello my Fibro friends, I've been away for a very long time. I'm just "stopping in" to say hi and see how you are all doing? I posted tonight in the chronic pain forum. I had surgery 11 mo ago, lumbar laminectomy and fusion and have been suffering with severe nerve pain ever since, actually worse than before surgery. I'm hoping someone on that site may have an answer to a question I posted. I've had fibro for over 30 years, diagnosed about
30 years ago. I have to say that over the past couple of years, it seems to have eased up somewhat. I am gluten free which I believe may have helped, exercising every single day even when I have to force myself to get on the treadmill or elliptical and eating a low carb lifestyle. I also take some supplements. The one thing I can't seem to conquer is barometric changes...they get me every time. Wondering if the dog lovers are still here? I've had golden retrievers for over 37 years and 4 years ago, I certified with my golden for animal assisted therapy. I love it. The organization I volunteer for mainly does programs in schools for special needs kids, read to dogs library programs, in-patient hospital visits, adolescent psych wards in hospitals, rehabs centers for children and de-stress programs for staff in hospitals, and corporations, also students before finals. I've recently been asked to become a trainer for the group which I am really excited about
. Well, I guess you are all caught up, LOL. Hope everyone is doing well.
