Came across this by chance St about the actor Morgan a Freeman, he may has millions in the bank but it's doesn't stop him suffering like the rest of us...... At least he won't have to rely on pip Lol 😃

Freeman went public with his diagnosis of fibromyalgia in 2013. His symptoms include excruciating pain up and down the arm. Fibromyalgia is a condition in which a person has chronic pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other tissues.

No but I would not mind finding out how millions to spend could help. I know that stress makes it worse and worry about money very stressful. Also massage is helpful for me but that costs. A good diet with someone to do the cooking and clearing up. Being able to afford to see my son who is living abroad with in laws and no where for me to stay so would need a hotel and he is doing 3 jobs to get a place so has not time and no money to visit me. Just dropped my £10 mobile phone and is not working and that has been enough to give me a really bad headache and up my pulse.


I know they say money doesn't make you happy but I'd like to see for myself, like you say you would be able to afford things that would help, I can't even justify paying out to go swimming 2-3times a week coz over the month it costs too much but it's something I'd like to try.... I don't want much just less pain and less stress to start with!

I agree that money brings it own problems, I have a friend who was "rich" as a teenager (money left to her) she used to give up on everything as soon as it became hard. left school with no qualifications and took until her 30s to get life together.

Again a young man I know was left a farm but no money. One day went out for the day and about 3 miles into his trip his car broke down so he walked home. Found a man in a suit and clip board found out his girlfriend decided to find out how much he was worth without his knowledge. He again took a while to find someone he trusts.


Thanks, I have learned something new.

Take care
