- DX FIBRO
Hi everyone. You can call me Squishy or Punky, I don't mind either one. My pronouns are they/them/theirs. I'm 24, from the US. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia less than two months ago, after a solid year or so of investigating potential autoimmune diseases first (none discovered). I come from a long line of chronic illness sufferers, but I'm the first with fibromyalgia. Also probably have IBS, but haven't seen a gastro yet and may not be able to for a while. I'm trying to stay upbeat about everything and tend to cope with humor, but it's been hard and sometimes it feels like it's just getting harder. I hope that this place will enable me to find some support I can't get IRL, and that I'll be able to support others in turn.
