Hiya, so I'm new here - I have M.E / CFS , Fibromyalgia and a few other things. I'm looking for pointers on how to cope and get myself under control. Had a crap few years but now I can get out of bed :) I have improved a bit but I am now looking to chat to others about how they live their life 😜 . . . So Hiya and here is a random

Welcome! I've only been here about 2 weeks now, but I have found a lot of support, even just by reading others stories. I don't share any diagnosis with you but multiple family members have fibromyalgia so I can see from the outside how much it effects someone and their life. I hope that you find lots of love and support here. ❤
P.S. what a beautiful cat!

@julie4769. Do you know how to start a discussion ? That's where you can post a picture. Or if you want to on a comment click the paperclip on the left as you type 😊

We've all had this learning curve on how to do that. I take the picture with my phone first then go th the app. Start my post, select the paperclip icon then select camera or gallery for picture. Of course then select what picture you want. I think there is an easier way but have not tried anything else.

I am sorry you are not coping. Would saying take one day at a time be too trite. It is what helps me. Staying in the moment. Also taking the time needed to get pain under control, then start looking for books or articles that tell you about fibro. Keep a daily pain log using this app. It helps doctors understand the depth duration of our pain. We support you here. Feel free to rant or rave about how you feel. Check out the headings of various threads here too. Lots of good stuff for encouragement & direction. Gentle hugs to you.
