Morning All

Hope you don't have Monday morning blues.

It makes me sad when I see people who are newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia cos we all know how it's going to go. But the good thing is there is this lovely site for them to join & lovely people who want to help & hold their hands. I don't blog on here very often cos I don't know what to say. I love to read the blogs & have found many answers to questions I have pondered over.

I have had the odd moan on here & had lovely support from many of you. Your a great bunch & it's comforting to know that you are only at the end of my fingertip.

May you all be as pain free as possible. For those who are still a bed stay snug. For those who are up and about keep taking the tablets.

Luv & gentle squeezes

Good morning Ann and anyone else that reads this. Its a bright sunny morning in Cardiff this morning, Got a good soaking first thing when I walked my Westie but its turned into a smashing day so far. I got the back door open into the garden so that the cat and dog can come and go. Its normally open most of summer (when it doesn't rain) so who knows maybe we are in for an early spring.

Today my symptoms are good, behaving themselves for a little while I hope, never goes away for long but the Gabapentin is already helping me cope quite well. Having had this thing for almost 20 years you would think I'd have got used to it, but there is always a twist with Fibro. For about four or five years I had terribly itchy scalp and the skin scaled and fell out all the time, making it look like I was falling apart, almost like a Zombie just been dug up. But thankfully that has now cleared away. Fibro is a mystifying disease as there are so many differing ailments associated with it. I do hope those who are newly diagnosed get all the help and support they need.


How nice of you to post Ann and I'm completely with you when you say about newly diagnosed people and how difficult can be to understand. I think this forum offers some of the very best support and knowledge to help people and that is all we can do, be there to support. It's lovely having really nice people around isn't it :-) it certainly cheers me up a lot :-)

Sending lots of positive healing vibes your way :-)
