Hiya, my name is Clare and I was diagnosed with Fibro 2 years ago. I have had symptoms since I was 36, am now 52. I also suffer from Agoraphobia which carries its own complications. I was always an active person and get so frustrated as I cant even manage things that were once so easy, asking my hubby and my daughter to help with things I enjoyed so much such as preparing and cooking a meal makes me feel useless! I`m so glad I found Fibroaction and all of you, at least now I know I`m not on my own and hopefully sharing my experiences may be a help to some of you here, this is a nasty illness which only sufferers and carers can understand, I`ve read through quite a few posts and its heartbreaking what this awful condition does to us.
