I should have done this before posting, my apologies. I'm 66 and live with my husband in Central Scotland. I have been ill with M.E. / Fibromyalgia since 95 (they used to group both illnesses together). I am pretty much house and bed bound and my husband has become my carer. Our two kids have grown, married and flown the nest. I have a gorgeous grandaughter of 6 who lightens my life. I've managed to cope with the neglect and disregard from the medical profession which most of us, no doubt, have experienced but recently I've found myself very teary and very angry about it. I have been lucky in that I have a very kind GP who will allow me to try any meds I have come across that may help, so long as its within his remit legally of course. I came across this site last night at my usual wide awake time 11.30 on til around 2.30 and beyond. So thats me and I'm happy to be here. I appreciate the replies I've had to my post already, people seem very kind. I have to admit that I was on a very large American site for many years but left due to the back biting that went on and decided to stay away from sites. However, I'm really impressed with what you have here so thanks for welcoming me.
