  • lol and hi dottie, nice to meet you. we will all have to meet up and chat on here on a night lol, im debbie by the way and know exactly what your saying, i spend my nights wide awake and grab sleep when i can in day time, tried everything to get back to sleep at night time but now thinking after over 2 years like this that things may never change, dont you think its depressing sitting up all night when everybody else is fast asleep, it drives me mad but one consalation is with the fibro fog ive always got something to watch on the tv lol. soft hugs DEBBIE XX

  • hi Debbie thank I love that you sent soft hugs- that is soooo clever as thats all you can take when your in pain!

    Have got so used to being in pain & up at night I think it has become normal for me. I like the quiet & I read books while wrapped up in sleeing bags ! Find that heat helps my pain.

    Jill xxx soft hugs to you too

  • hi,i am not even properly diagnosed yet but offf work with bad flare up.Had 4 hours sleep last night,read a whole paperback whilst i was trying unsuccessfully to sleep.When i found this site i cried my eyes out and just knew what i had and that i wasnt going mad,no-one understands your pain do they.i am tearful now writing this as i am really low at the moment but it is SO good to chat with poeple who understand and are always here.Gentle hugs xxx

  • Same here was in tears- it's such a relief to find like minded folk who are all going through the same crappy things as you. Hope you get a good Doctor who is sympathetic. My first GP told me she didn't belive in Fibro and i was a hyprocondrac! Over the years have had some good Doc's & bad. Wish I new what I know about fibro now. Good luck xxx
