    Hi MeHurt2,

    Support group therapy has the ability to be incredibly effective. It says here that support groups make patients feel not so alone, and that realization brings with it relief.

    You are not alone. You deserve comfort and understanding. This is a social networking site specifically for people with fibromyalgia, which is beneficial when you can't find a support group in your area.

    Please be sure to come back and update us on how you're doing. We care about you and we are here for you ((hugs)).

    Hi MeHurt2!

    I'm sorry the people around you aren't more caring. FM is not easily diagnosed (as you must know!) and everyone responds to treatments differently.

    You can see that not many people have been posting. A couple of years ago the fired all the medical pros - the docs and nurses - and let their fora become a free for all. Many have left in search of a better forum.

    I don't know anything about the group editor_morgan is talking about, but I'll check it out. Please repost - we DO care!

    I wish you the best day YOU can possibly have!
    Lou
