I have always struggled with this issue as lots of times I had to make a choice between eating healthy or going to the doctor or buying medication. With any health plan this is always going to be tough for those of us that live on a very small income.
My disability income is less than $500 a...
I'm just here to see if anyone with Fibromyalgia have similar symptoms as myself. I've been living with Spondylitis (Arthritis) for 20-25 years. So basically long term pain and fatigue. Over the last few years I seem to have added a new and very long list of symptoms that I'm dealing...
I am vegan, so that means that I almost always have to prepare food at home. I also live on my own. Thankfully my sister helps me out quite often - especially with the whole cutting of fruits and veggies process, but when she is not around, I really have to gather all the energy I have, in...
Hi, everyone -
How are you? I am in MS and I was diagnosed the day of the presidential elections. Sigh. I am really struggling right now; I'm hoping to get support here, as I did when I got my Celiac disease diagnosis 11 years ago and joined a forum that was a lifesaver, in terms of accepting...

I really think that a Vegan diet is the right way to go, it is alright to use medicines and supplements but I think it defeats the goal of yielding good results as far as reducing the pain levels , impact on fatigue , and the amount of inflammation which is another thing that causes pain. Eating...
Hi everyone, I have been diagnosed with Fibro about a year ago and have a history of anxiety, and depression. I have had weird symptoms my whole life and now I feel debilitated. I used to be a weight lifter/fitness enthusiast who always worked out. Now I can hardly get to the store. I am...
I have always been a sickly child. I was diagnosed with fibro and CFS when I was 17. It seems to run in my family with at least one case confirmed with an Aunt being diagnosed possibly more. For the past 10+ years I have had a doctor phobia and had stayed away and and off of all the drug...
Often times we just don't realize how much our diets can contribuite to our over all health unitl a visit to the doctor shows us our weight on that scale or our bloodwork is not so good.
