I am a 6'6" male and have weighed 350+ my whole life. My diagnosis has no specific date but I recall times as a child having troubles and wondering why I was different. But anyway.. being this large makes most doctors point out my weight and suggest losing weight would help and call me out on...
I thought I would start a thread where we can all share one thing a day that made us happy and made us smile and had a kind word we wanted to share with other members.
Often we rush through our days and never give a lingering thought about the few things that made us happy, made us smile, or...
Not long ago my partner said so many unkind things and dumped me blaming fibro and how its affected me as mine has been really severe for a long time now and so clearly affects his life too....but rejection and brutal words on top of being so poorly has had devastating consequences mentally and...
I continue to be frustrated with getting a diagnosis. Continuing pain and discomfort and fatigue. Up until this year I was working as a substitute teacher at a local girls high school. I loved working there and always felt like I was coming into a strong caring community. I have always had...

I'm mostly only making this post because someone I care about told me I should look for more answers. I've only had fibromyalgia for about 4 years, and the first year or so I could still kind of function but it's slowly become worse and worse. For a long time I tirelessly pursued relief and...

I am a new member of this forum and a recently found out from my Neurologist that I have Fibromyalgia. Being 23 and hearing this news, on top of my other auto immune disorders is a little depressing. I was a very healthy, active, happy girl 5 years ago, before weird symptoms...
I am a 60-year-old California lawyer, diagnosed a couple of months ago. My husband has advanced Alzheimer's and I suspect the past 5 years of caring for him has taken a pretty big toll. I have tried Cymbalta, Trazadone and Ambien but nothing has helped yet. I cannot remember sleeping through...
Hi all. I'm really glad to have found a forum on this that seems to be a positive group of people. I was diagnosed in 2011 after having dealt with unexplained pain/fatigue my entire life. It got worse as a teenager after breaking my tailbone several times and being hospitalized with a staph...
