Hi Panther and Mad! I'm in UK and have Fibro and osteoarthritis. Newly diagnosed (about 6 months) so still very much in mourning for my old self. Currently going to pain management clinic 1 x month and waiting for appt for Physio for long term back problem and also appt for weight loss clinic. I want to be positive but some days it's hard. I wish you both well and hope we can support each other jumping through any hoops in the UK. By the way I have a disabled badge which is helpful.
