hello there , im a bit new , im not sure if people will accept me on this site , i have fibromyalgia and no understanding of it , i also have calacific tendonitus and suffer from severe depression and anxiety which has been for a very long time , my family and friends dont really understand much about my life or how i suffer with pain , at the moment i have cellulitis  ive had it before and ended up in hospital for a month and almost lost my leg , so very nervous about this time , i am on my second set of anti biotics , a little sceptical i just hope these ones work . i feel i dont fit in with many communities and i am pretty shy , more of a listener than a speaker, i also had a gastric bypass 2 years ago thinking my life would be better, but i now feel even though i have lost some weight ,i feel i cant move around like i used to , i am on esa and standard pip, they are not aware of my fibro yet i dont know how to go about giving them the information as my next assessment is in 2018 , please excuse my typos sometimes i get sausage fingers when they swell and get chapped and sore , i dont really know what else to say apart from i need to find somewhere to belong and try and make new friends which i have difficulty doing, so even though i felt too shy i felt the need to overcome that or i wouldnt be able to get to know anyone so i am taking baby steps, i have to start somewhere , so here is me saying hello
