Hi Mac thanks for coming on board with us! We are a pretty diverse group, mostly Americans and Canadian but from all over! Ask questions there is a lot of knowledge and experience in this crew.

More experience than any of us wants to admit. But, back to the topic, HI Mac! I hate that you have to be here, but I'm glad you found us. As loony said, ask questions, there are all sorts of ways to deal with pain, and muscle cramps/spasms, not so much the fatigue start a new post in the "Open" section, tell us everything you've tried and we'll then be able to list all the things that have helped us.

I will put you in the trunk, and help people look for you, DON'T TEST ME.

Welcome Mac !!


Was there some illness or surgery type of event that started the downhill slide or just a slow onset for you?

There are no stupid questions, it's only stupid if you don't ask & continue to suffer.  We don't have a cure buts LOTS of experience in dealing with all things FiBro.

How did you come about finding our site??

Give us some more background on your journey to get to this point when you have a chance.

Hey... Welcome to the family, mac!  :bighug:

So... remember to keep your knitting needles at a 45° angle...  or not... this ain't no knitting circle! ;) Nope, just a bunch of random broken folk who keep picking each other up and dusting them off. They say that whatever doesn't kill you makes you sob uncontrollably... or something like that... Hey, at least you found us.

So, I'm excited to hear about your journey. I don't know that I've met a fibro guy who hasn't gotten the dead stare from a doctor, essentially either calling us liars or overly dramatic. Yeah... we've been there brother!

Looking forward to hearing your story.
