Fibromyalgia n male

Dec 09, 2018 12:13 PM

Hi im new to the app I’m struggling to find people to talk to as many groups are all women which is fine but I can’t get the support coz they don’t talk to me n only thing I can think is coz I’m male
Can I ask would it bother people on here coz I’m male
I’m not trying to be a sexist pig or cause problems
I don’t know if it’s just people in the uk
Coz there ant many males that have fibromyalgia in the uk

Welcome to the community RGrice. I'm sorry you have chronic pain. There are other men on here as well. Not everyone comes on daily but I'm sure someone will comment.

Thank you for answering
I normally do groups but I need somewhere safe to vent that don’t judge coz my friends I do have don’t seem to bothered at the moment so need to find support elsewhere

Guys start an all male support group on f b. There are ones for other illnesses so do one.
