    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Returning after 4yr hiatus from the boards :)

    Hi Ladies, been a whirlwind of time flying by alright! Fun? well that's another thing. Lol

    In summer of 2011, I was approved for federal disability(Canadian) after being denied in 2010. Hooray for pages and pages of documentation! A saving grace. Always document! Names & contact numbers of every doctor, physiotherapist, specialist, naturopath, laser therapist, you name it, list it!

    In 2010 I also separated from a troubled & unsupportive relationship.(Hence the need to change my screen name!!) I am now on my own with the kids.However, I am happy to say though, that I have found an amazing man who actually supports me emotionally and is a great communicator. He is very understanding and helps me in any way he can when he's over. He is fantastic! Took a long time but the supportive partners/future spouses really are out there, to reach out to us in chronic pain etc.

    Looking forward to catching up!

    OMG****I am so glad that you got your disability and I am glad that you found someone you truly understands and accepts you for who you are.....this is so very important.

    I think that you will perhaps have to *join* the group again to change your user's name.

    WebMD no longer has Dr. P and any of the other specialist on board and there are no moderators that I am aware of....Caprice left as well. I guess WebMD had to cut back on expenses like most companies are doing these days and what you see is what you get.

    Anyway....I do hope you will continue to post when you can and share whatever you care to with the rest of the FMers here. There are still some of the oldie goldies here and a lot of new members. We still have some who post every now and then and hopefully there are a lot of lurkers who have decided to keep up by just reading but not posting.

    It is indeed a daily journey that we all have to face, whether we like it or not...it is good that we try to make the most of the situation that we have been handed.

    Take care and good luck.

    Welcome back!
    We have not met. I am Debbie Brooks, soon to be Debbie Lewis. I live in north Florida. I am glad you are part of the family again. I have been a member for a little over a year. Everyone is so nice here and so helpful. I am so happy for you that you found a nice guy that loves you for you. Sometimes it is so hard to find those kind of guys. I am glad you got one. I look forward to hearing from you again.

    Debbie

    Hi, since you're not Cory's girl anymore, why not just sign your name at the bottom of your post. Works for me.

    It's wonderful that you are in a better place in life now. It may not make your fibro better, but it will definitely help you handle it better. And that's darn important.

    If the earlier replies you received are to be believed, you are about to liven up this board. Great!!

    As for me, I'm a great pontificator. I try to restrain myself, but the inner woman always comes out. You know, the big windbag.

    Welcome back aboard,

    Soooo if all the moderators left and there are no more featured experts here anymore....Yes I understand cutbacks but having Dr. P here was pretty insightful!

    I guess I'll have to make a whole new profile/account. THAT should be *fun!

    Hope everyone is well this evening. Soft squishy hugs to all!

    Julie aka Cece's crazy Canadian partner in crime ;D Haha
