I suffer from Fibromyalgia, IBS and Diverticular disease plus like many others as a consequence I have mental illness as well. I always believed that would never be me. Well obviously it is now. That being the case, I finally took my head out of the sand and decided that I really need to chat with other like minded people. That's the reason I joined. Thank you for having me.
