Dear Fairycazzle,

I would like to provide you with the link to the FibroAction Support Group Directory that may help with the feelings that you are experiencing. please see below:

I believe this is the nearest group to where you are.

You may receive comments from other members that are near you and this may prove to be a beneficial support. Please be mindful of your online personal safety and that personal details should not be posted within the thread.

I hope you find a group within your area and gain understanding & empathy that may support you a little more.

Best Wishes



Bless you Cazzie, we all understand how you feel. We have all felt like that at some time or other. Having people who understand can make all the difference to our quality of life and general well being can't it.

Give the support group idea a try, you will meet other Fibromites and automatically be on the same wavelength. It might be just what you need.

Hope it all goes well for you, please let us know how you get on.

When I first saw your blog I thought I had written it and didn't remember doing it. Until I got to the bit that said BHMS and didn't know what it meant. You are exactly like I am and for that I sympathise with you greatly.

Take care of yourself,

Hi Fairycazzie,

I can't believe i've found someone who lives near me, I live in Moortown, i couldn't belive it yesterday when i saw your messsage. I have been diagnosed with FM since 2009 and then later diagnosed with RA. Its been a long struggle since 2006 for some kind of diagnosis. keep positive i know its difficult.

Take care

all have gentle hugs xx


am so glad you've found others in your area so quickly Fairycazzle. I hope that you can all get together or at least chat on the phone/online and find some comfort from getting to know one another.

I have quite a few online friends with FM who are spread around the country, but there doesn't seem to be a group in north Devon yet. Unfortunately, I've just had to sell my car as I couldn't afford to keep it, so now I have even less mobility than before and am reliant upon my partner taking me places that require more than 5 mins on foot. Which is everywhere basically!

One of my neighbours has CFS but she still manages to work part-time and I rarely see her. We have coffee about every 6 months. Wish it were more. Another of my neighbours has a chronic condition not related to FMS and we manage to have a cuppa together most weeks. We're both in the middle of having work done on the house, so are living in chaos! We can't wait til it's all over and we can start putting things away tidily and not keep falling over boxes and sundry sh*t lol. It's good to share some of life's challenges with friends, whereever they may be. Good luck, Fairy - I hope you and the others in this blog can all have a banter and a lifting of spirits. Goodness knows, we all need that! Am flying on a codeine boost this morning so it's a wonder this comment makes any sense. I'll leave you to be the judges of that haha :-)

Fairy, I hope you won't mind if I put in a friends request in a separate blog - just in case there's somebody from my neck of the woods.
