Hello and welcome to our forum Gilz! Good to have you with us! :)

We are all here for you, we understand too. Most of us have been through similar issues with people not understanding, family not understanding, employers too.

I found when I eventually got my diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, that I wasn't actually going round the bend, I did have something wrong with me and that helped. It's so hard at the beginning having all these symptoms and not getting anywhere or getting any answers either.

Take a look through our Questions, Blogs and Tags, there is a wealth of information there, also advice, support, personal experiences, friendship too! Any worries or concerns, please ask us, we are only too happy to help. We are always here for you as we are for each other. We are all in the same boat here and many of us have other health conditions as well as Fibro, so we cover pretty much everything.

Take care and enjoy your time with us Gilz! :D
