Hi, I am new to this community. I was diagnosed with FM a few years ago. I sometimes wonder if its real as I also have painful spine issues and wonder if its this pain referring to all areas. However, I know that water therapy, wellbutrin, and ambien help me manage my days and nights. I have five children still at home, they are big helps and make me happy. I pray they have a 'normal' childhood. I am single, and like it that way for now. I was married for 20 years and feel that I am better off now. I am glad for this community. I do get lonely, I don't hardly leave the house. Thank you for listening. Christine

Welcome Christine,

You will find friendship and understanding here. These members are really amazing. You will also find a lot of great information.

I too don't leave the house often. I was dx'd 3 years ago, but have had fibro for longer than that. I was stubborn and wouldn't go to the doctor. I am glad the medicine you are taking is working for you. They are still trying to find my right combo.

It is wonderful to have help around the houses and glad your kids understand and are willing to make your life easier.

Hugs friend! Kim

Welcome Christine!

I hope you'll enjoy coming here and talking with us. I have founds everyone here warm, wonderful and caring, and I hope you do too!

I'm glad you're happy and your children are helping. Too many people stop in and say their kids and/or spouses don't help and/or don't care. My DH has been a good support for me, as I am self-employed, and some days I don't get outside. I have recently dropped 25 of the 35lbs I slathered on when I was diagnosed in 2005.

I look forward to seeing you again. Have the best day you can possibly have!
Lou
