Dealing with Pain

Hi everyone I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one feeling like I'm losing my mind. Dealing with pain and Fibro fog can be very depressing. At times I wonder if I have Dementia. Many times I struggle to remember if I took my medication, paid a bill, ate, etc. Looking forward to hearing from you. I new to this so please be patient with me. And if I repeat myself I hope you understand why.

  • Hello there

    Welcome to our lovely forum :)

    I am sure that you will soon fit in with us a treat. We wont know whether you repeat yourself, as I'm sure most of us wont remember anyway - in the nicest possible way!

    You may like to have a look at our mother site for a wealth of information on Fibromyalgia

    We all suffer with Fibro and many of us have other illnesses to deal with as well, so we can completely identify with you.

    Since I have been a member of the forum I have made some wonderful lifelong friendships, and I am sure you will too.

    Once again, a very warm welcome and we look forward to getting to know more about you.

    Wishing you less pain and more peace
