    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

    I, too, have Fibro and have been trying to cope with it since before it was diagnosed in 1990. I say 'cope' because I find I never get used to it and each day in ALWAYS different than the next! One caveat to that, though, is the pain -- the pain is a constant - it's ALWAYS there. I am sorry that you've been denied twice for disability; you must be diligent in looking for an attorney that does nothing but disability cases. They can legally only take a certain, small percentage of your pay once your ARE awarded your disability and hopefully is considered as retro pay as well from the time you were diagnosed and confirmed with FIBRO, along with all of the illnesses that are connected to this insidious syndrome. Best of luck to you Mortisha, and please never, ever, forget that you are never, ever alone. . . . . . . .
