Hello Everyone

I am new to all this blogging business but have found this site a great incite to my diagnosis of FB and learning to come to terms with the way my body is now behaving! I feel that some of the symptoms have been with me for many years (after being hit by a car 27 years ago) but it is only now that they are really having an effect on my life due to the severe pain and fatigue i endure on a regular basis, Mr first appointment with a specialist is next month and i hope that they have a good understanding of FB and i will feel even isolated. Have bought a few books on the subject and i am really trying to understand it all but like many of you have said along the way i am worried that everything will be put down to FB and my GP won't take it seriously! Enough waffling look forward to speaking with you soon :-)

Hi Sandra thank you for your welcome :-)


Hi Trosh

Like you I found this site a great source if information, when I first found it, even though I had been diagnosed several years before. I do think I manage the illness better now, and a lot of that is down to ideas, inspirations, and information I get from here. Good luck with your specialist, I hope you find someone helpful.
