Hi, I've just joined this site and would like to introduce myself. I was diagnosed with fibro about 5 years ago. I had been in a car accident a few months before and had suffered whiplash which the rheumatologist thought might be responsible for it. The unusual thing with my family is that my Mum and both of my 2 brothers and 2 sisters also suffer from fibro, which has led to my new rheumatologist suggesting it might be hypermobility syndrome as my limbs were mildly double jointed.
I work as a revenue protection officer which means I check tickets at train stations. Our hours were changed from 8 a day to 10 a day which lead to a massive flare up and 6 months off on the sick. I have gone back part time, 5 hours a day, but have had a few more flare ups recently and have been off for nearly a month at the moment.
I've starting knitting again while off to keep my mind occupied and have knitted some lovely outfits for my sister who had a baby in January.
So welcome, and I hope to meet some nice and supportive people on this site.
