Hello y'all! :D
I'm from South Carolina, am 62 yrs. old and am living with FM snd CFS. I was diagnosed with FM and CFS in 1991. For three years I was in a wheel chair/ bedridden. That was before the doctors really knew anything about or even accepted this as an illness.

I am in a lot of pain and work part time. I feel like someone pushing through fog and unsure of myself because of so much pain. Putting on a mask has been a very common thing for me to do. Pain has become so regular that blocking it out is common. It hurts just to sit in a chair and lay down...
This is my first post, and proofreading it I see I've been a bit long winded. Even so I hope some of you will read it and feel a connection. I'm looking forward myself to delving into this site for fellowship and ideas and help dealing with this disease.

I have a question.... I have been insanely tired for the last 1-2 years. I get 7+ hours nightly and I can sleep 12+ hours and still be tired. I have absolutely no desire to do anything other than be curled up on a chair with a book or my iPad. I have pain throughout my body, neck/shoulders...
