  • Yes nice people here. Hello and welcome!!

  • Cheers smugcat x I suppose I don't know what to talk about x pain is very personal x I only know what mine is like and can only imagine what yours is like x even my wife. (yes I'm gay) hasn't got a clue!!! She tries bless her but sometimes it just leaves me feeling frustrated x

  • Hey Sue, pain is personal totally personal. And ones who don't go through it just don't get it. by the way I think it's great it's legal for same sex marriages and good for you x

  • Cheers elsie123 we been married over 3 years now but together for 8. We have a boy of 7 too x I've got 3 grown up children and 5 grandchildren x so we are busy nannies lol. it keeps me going. How about you?

  • That's cool Sue, and so lovely you have children and grandchildren! I bet they do keep you going eh?! I am married have been together for 13 years married for 8. we don't see eachother much due to where I work and where he works but it's the way it is. Probably why we are still together seeing eachother at the weekends! 🤣

  • Hi elsie123, glad to meet you and welcome to our forum. Hugs xxx

  • Thanks you Falabella

  • Isn't that the best type of marriage elsie123? I've been laid off due to my health but my wife still works. It only happened last month, so I'm still adjusting to being home all day. I enjoyed my job but it was killing me slowly. I was nurse for adults with learning disabilities and mental health problems. It was very challenging and the shift work played hell with my sleep patterns.

  • Perhaps it is Sue! I am so independent sounds horrible doesn't it?!

    I am sorry about your work, it must take time to adjust. you did an amazing one too, to be there for those adults who needed some support I admire you. but there I guess comes a time eventually where we have to think of ourselves, and despite it being so hard for you you are going through the motions now. Give yourself time to adjust. I am working and intend to for as long as I can only time will tell x

  • So how long you been diagnosed? I was about 4 years ago but then developed pernicious anaemia and as they say the rest is history lol. You sound determined which is crucial with this condition.

  • I was diagnosed 13 years ago I am 32 now. I have lots of health problems. I fight every day and lunge myself into my work to bury all the troublesome angst and anger I feel about the excruciating pain. I have my bad days, in fact I have had terrible days. we all do don't we?

  • Oh it sounds like you've had it tough love x I'm here to emphasize whenever you need x

  • many people have it tougher, and it's a slow road which I am currently walking in the sense of recovery from many things in which actually like fibro may never happen. who knows?

    Thank you and same goes to you x

  • Will keep fingers crossed for us both

  • I will keep my fingers AND toes crossed for us x 😊

  • Welcome to our wonderful fibro family hun :) Hope you gain whatever it is you need from this forum and that you will soon feel ready to share and post - it really does help to know that others are in the same boat 💗💗
