    Hello! I'm Rhi and I have Fibro/CFS and diabetes.

    For years, my previous doctor told me that I was exhausted and in pain because I had sleep apnea even though I never once snored or stopped breathing in my sleep. He told me I was overweight and all my pain was because I was too fat. (I don't disagree that my weight was an issue, however at this...

    Tennis (elbow), anyone?

    I have had a bad case of tennis elbow in both elbows now for close to a year. I've learned to cope with it just like the rest of my daily pain and fatigue. I take Naprocyn and use stabilizing supporters on both elbows, which helps quite a bit for a while. I am an artist and musician, so I...
