    Hi, I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, an under activity thyroid, depression, IBS and I'm going through the menopause.  I also care for my 2 disabled adult sons, and my baby grandson as my daughter works full time, I'm so exhausted, glad I have found people I can vent to. Xx

    This is definatly the right place to vent. Speaking to fellow sufferers helps so much.
