I have suffered with Fibromyalgia for many years. I also have Arthritis and Bipolar Affective Disorder. My carer has just joined me up here, she types for me and helps me with everything on a daily basis. We both thought it a good idea for me to become a member here. So here I am.

    Thank you for the lovely welcomes. Hi Tori_Scope, managing my conditions is a tricky thing but am blessed with my daughter/carer who is tirelessly amazing with me. Just sitting with her and joining today was enough for me, then we came back here now to leave this message of thanks for the welcomes. Tomorrow we will look through the site and get familiar with it.
