    Hi @pocpoc - welcome to this friendly & supportive community, Kathy. I hope you enjoy being part of this community as you will find a lot of understanding here. :)
    I'm sorry you suffer from fibromyalgia, as many others here also do, & which can be poorly understood by some of our Drs. I have a little understanding, as in those with my disorder (the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome), it has been found that the pain we have is most like fibromyalgia.

    Thankyou all for your welcome msgs.. Im 36 mum of 2 kids 12&13 feel like 80 some days.. 
    Ive been able to manage my depression with meds  over the years but since my mum died my way of dealing with it was turning into a stone blocking everything out,18months after the funeral i could feel myself welling up inside & i turned to drugs to block the emotional pain out.. The stress and upset hasnt helped the fibro one little but however im now midway change of meds,although has had me sat 2-3 hours crying my eyes out. Im exhausted both ways

    A very warm welcome @pocpoc, it's nice to meet you. 
    Those early teenage years can be really trying can't they? I've got a 13 year old and a 10 year old (as well as a toddler running about) and they've certainly aged me! 

    How are you today?
