Thanks, Conni1966, for responding. I downloaded the app this morning. A lot of the posts in my initial scroll thru seemed to be from those with Fibro. I was beginning to think I was in the "wrong" group. I've not been diagnosed with Fibro but sometimes I wonder.
This app is for anyone that is dealing with chronic pain. Welcome to the group. We are all dealing with way more than any of us would want to. Everyone here is supportive and non-judgmental. So far we have been pretty free of haters, thankfully. Feel free to ask questions, vent, rant anything you need. I cannot think of any topic that is off limits. We have all chatted about everything from medication, disability, dealing with pain, stress, diets, sex, relationships, I guess you could say we are pretty open. Many illnesses have overlapping symptoms, in the past I feel like fibro has been a catch all diagnosis that doctors are only now beginning to understand. Our group has people from all walks of life and all over the globe. Feel free to pick our brains. Some members are more active than others, but almost always someone responds to questions. That being said sorry you are in pain but welcome to the group.
Thanks for the explanation. I like to keep track of my pain levels and such because I only see my rheumatologist every 4 months. I hope this app will help me keep track. Talking to folks on our chronic pain journey is a plus.

Some have Fibro, some have degenerative diseases or both and others have many other issues. The common ground is that we all suffer chronic pain. There is a tremendous amount of information and support here. You never have to worry about your mood, how you are feeling, venting, complaining, asking questions or anything else. This is a no judgement zone, we have all been there and definitely understand. One thing you will learn by being with us is that you are never alone. There is always someone who will come to the rescue when you need it. You will also find us to be a fun, zany and uplifting bunch. I hope that you get the support and information you need being here with us. Remember that someone is always just a keystroke away. I wish you the best and will keep you in my prayers. 🙏🏻🌻
