Hi I have just joined - not really a group person, but my fibromyalgia has brought about so many changes to my life and most of them not good ones either.  I am really angry at the ngative impact this has had - sick of feeling unwell - and after 12 years of continuous pain and an utterly useless pain consultant I realised I need to reach out to a wider community and ask for help.  I'm not a moaner by nature - always managed to be a glass half full person but right now, there isn't even a glass to consider.  sorry.

    I haven't been here long, but already finding this site to be very welcoming. 

    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    Hi @pete2002, and it's good to meet you. As Pippa mentioned we seem to have quite a lot of fibromyalgia sufferers here and I'm sure you'll find plenty to talk to. The community is a very friendly place, full of people happy to go the extra mile and then double it :smile:
    Oh, and grumbling's fine. You're entitled to grumble, rant, rave or whatever - you've earned the right.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
