I just signed in, I have been fighting this thing called fibro for 14yrs. Doctors after doctors, feel like a bouncing ball. I'm in so much pain, my life is a sure challenge. I need to be able to talk with others in the same boat. How do YOU cope?
I have been managing moderate to severe chronic pain for over 35 years. My conditions are listed in my story and include fibro. I work hard at daily focusing on the good in my life - the blessings - and trying to keep a positive attitude. It is not easy, but it can be done and we can rise above circumstances and enjoy life.
