Hi all my names georgia and imtwenty two and I'm new here.I have a wonderful supporting partner family and friends. I was only diagnosed with fibromyalgia today. But I have had chronic pain and other symptoms the past five years and I really liked that there is other people here who might be able to help me understand what's going on and having a nice support group to talk with people who are dealing with the same things as me. So please be gentle with me it's my first time talking to people like this.

Hope you are all doing well and thanks. :)

  • Hi GIIGII, Im probabley the last person you should talk to today, Ive just posted how miserable Im feeling at the moment, but I know I can tell this group stuff like that without them throwing their hands up in horror and sending for little men in white coats! They are a great bunch, enjoy! Lyzzie x

  • I am fine have painted one side of a door! rest now for a while then back to the other side - what an exciting life I lead !!!! 😊

  • Well you have managed much more than me in one day :) and I glad you are okay :)

  • Hi there

    Welcome ☺ I am glad you have found us.

    I was diagnosed when I was 20. I'm now 55 so have lived with the condition for a long time.

    As you are newly diagnosed you might like to have a look at our mother site fmauk.org

    My best personal advice to you would be to start asking us any questions you'd like answered (between us we have a lot that we can share) but mainly just to take a deep breath, slow down and take some time out to come to terms with your diagnosis.

    It is an awful lot to take on board so take some time and let it all sink in.

    It is wonderful that you have a supportive network around you. That will help enormously.

    If you need any help navigating your way around the forum or don't understand any expressions you may hear please don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best to help you.

    I look forward to getting to know you.

    Wishing you less pain and more peace

    Lu x


  • Thank you very much.

    And I will be sure to ask anything I don't know or need help with and please if I can be of any help to anyone else let me know or if there is anything I can do.

    I hope to get to know you all better georgia.


    I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I am so genuinely sorry to read that you also have Fibro and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

    Ken :)

  • Hello Ken,

    I am feeling much better today thank you for asking I hope you are feeling well. Thank you very much it's lovely to meet you.


  • That is wonderful to read my friend, and I sincerely hope that this continues for you :) :)

  • Welcome to our site, Fibro is one of the things you have to live with. I have had it for twenty five years and I'm still here!

  • Thank you very much and I'm very impressed and would love to hear how you have managed your pain and other problems if that is okay? Thanks georgia.


    I joined the site on 9th June, a little dubious I must admit, having had overload on another site. But every day, I am glad I did.

    Sometimes I say nothing, some time I write great rambling posts (sorry peeps), sometimes I skip posts, and sometimes I learn just the bit of information I needed.

    No one will ever judge what you post, spelling isn't important, saying something is. We all have hard days, today it's Lyzzies turn, tomorrow might be mine. No one complains if you post about having a hard/bad day, but loads will share your hard day with you, give support, love, care and just be here.

    Hayesider xx

  • I'm starting to feel like I'm really glad I did join it seems like such a friendly and understanding community. Thank you for welcoming me georgia x
