- DX FIBRO
I am so happy to find this group......it will be so nice to be among others who understand the pain! I started to write "understand how I "feel" but that makes it sound like it's in my mind and we all know that is NOT the case! That is one of the reasons that I've tried not to mention the word "fibro" after I married 20 years ago because my husband is convinced it is a label given to people who imagine pain! I've actually been dealing with "fibro" since I was about 18 but had no clue what it was nor did my doctor. I am 50 now and after going secretly to several doctors (didn't want the husband to know), pleading for help but being told I look good and that all of my blood work is great (including the numerous times they have checked my thyroid), I have decided, with the nudging of my therapist, to be aggressive about finding help! My 2 children, 11 and 16, deserve the best mom I can be and I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired! Oh yeah, hi everyone!
