    Musings on Fibro - Mindset, Bodyset ?

    I have been watching a lot of uTube on fibro. Interesting stuff. I mean, hey, I feel like crap so I'm sitting around right ? I mostly watch stuff presented by doctors, medical specialists.

    Diagnosed after many years

    I am so happy to discover a place to talk about this terrible malady with people who know how I feel. Thank you for accepting me. I have been seeing the same doctor, a general practitioner, since 2011. I have basically complained of the same symptoms all these years. After my quarterly visit...

I was diagnosed with fibro two and a bit years ago but, as my dh said once he'd read a thorough description, 'you've had this since I've known you' -- so that would be a good twenty years (I'm in my mid 40s now).
