I'm Sandra, nice to meet you all! I just found the app and I'm in shock. Is just that... I've already read some of your posts and replies and I'm so excited because I've never seen something like this, a group with people that help each other with so much warmth and that truly understand the feelings and the pain and everything...

I hope that you let me become part of this ^^

PS: Sorry if there is some spelling mistake, I speak Spanish and although I'm a bit good at English it is still difficult for me to write something that long without some mistakes hahaha By the way, is there someone that speak Spanish??:(

Welcome TSandra. It feels like I took Spanish in another lifetime - 1983/84. So sadly it has been lost to make room in my brain to try and remember day to day activities needed to be done. Glad to meet you.

Thanks! haha no problem, I'm fine with English if you all don't mind some mistakes :c

TSandra welcome to the group. I have no excuses for my spelling or grammar but I blame it on the phone. When all else fails blame auto correct. Lol. Poke around look at previous posts and settle in with our growing family. The group here is great! Welcome.

Welcome! This app is amazing, and so many friendly people.

Hi welcome TSandra this is a lovely group to browse post and chat. No worries I'm English but can't spell lol. No one judges on here which is great xx

Welcome TSandra! Like LMB I blame misspellings on auto correct. Lol! I hope we can all help you, and I'm sure you have insight to share as well. We chat, cry, vent, laugh, hug, and pray for each other... Whatever is needed. I did have one person asks me not to pray for them and I wasn't offended. But I did tell them with my fibro-fog I might not remember not too (I can't remember who it was, honestly). I've been here almost 20 mos and have made so many friends it's hard to keep up. LMB was among my first dozen or so. Everyone offers suggestions and advice, or hugs, a shoulder and ear. It's a wonderful group of people. I'm sure you will settle right in among us all. Hugs & a prayer for you! 🙏🌼

Hi TSandra! I'm so glad you are here and relieved to find the app. Me too. Isn't it a shame that we are in shock to find people who get it? It's amazing how similar our struggles are. You are already a part of us and I hope you find someone who speaks Spanish very soon. I wish I could! 🌹💌

Hi TSandra...you just found someone that speaks spanish, ME. Hola amiga, para ser alguien que no sabe mucho inglés, te comunicas a perfección. Bienvenida al grupo. Im puertorican, 49 and live in Kissimmee Florida. Fibromyalgia, arthritis, spine problems and a long list of other symptoms. I'm here for whatever you may need. Estoy a tu orden para cuando necesites hablar y desahogarte.

Hi & welcome to this brilliant resource with a bunch of the friendliest, most accepting people I have found anywhere online, no trolls (but in saying that I'm usually not that pretty in the mornings 😆) And above all these are people that can relate to chronic pain, whatever the cause and between us have experience of most medications and medical procedures.
Even if a pep talk is all you need at any given time, there are people happy to oblige.

Hello Tsandra, welcome to the group. We look forward to offering you the warmth and Understanding that you desire to feel at times. We all need it because at times those around us just don't understand it because they don't live it. They don't mean no harm. But it is nice to be around people who do get it. And they share what they learn. Take care.

TSandra, welcome to our community family. Of course you are more than welcome to join us and be part of our family. You have come to a safe place where you are free to discuss whatever is on your mind. There are no judgements here. I am really glad that you are so excited about being with us. We are a zany bunch and laugh at ourselves and each other as well as give a shoulder to cry on and an ear to bend. I hope that you settle in and enjoy being here. It really does make a difference knowing you're not alone and that you're speaking with people who understand. Don't worry about spelling.. With all of these auto correct spellers on our phones or tablets, we would t even notice..LOL!! So, sit back, relax, enjoy the company and I'll keep you in my prayers. 🙏🏻🌻{{{Hugs}}}
