    Hello @Teddybear12 hope you are well. I am in bed today but when I can not wait Until summer I can sit in the garden and enjoy the sun as I love sunshine and do help me a lot. I can not wait to go back to swimming but I have to feel better to do so. I play game on my iPad, and watching tv. My dog keeping me company as he is like my child always with me he can bring me things I need when I ask him but only a basic one :) 
    the weather is not really good as this flooding and storm by storm not helping. My partner will take me to the garden centre when I have a good days. As I moved to this area in Fife I don’t really have too many friends as I don’t wanna meet up anybody maybe because I am feeling sorry for myself . 
    How are you keeping ? How is your hobbies ?

    A warm welcome from me too @annas. How are you currently feeling about being in bed due to bad mobility? I have fibromyalgia so I can relate to the difficulties caused by the colder weather. I hope it warms up soon and gives you some relief. Do you like watching anything on TV in particular or any particular favourite games you like to play on your iPad?  :)

    @L_Volunteer hello. Thank you for a
    lovely Comment. In a good days I go
    Out my partner drives me in car and treats me to coffees or flowers to cheer  me up. Today I am in bed due to spasm and it’s affecting my legs now. In a good days I am trying to walk and move around but I don’t have too many good days. My friend has got a fybromaliga and it’s so painful and struggle to. Sorry to hear that. How do you cope with it? My game just an airport city or reading crime books. I am watching tV as I woke up to this sad new about Ukraine.

    Hi @annas

    Thanks for your response. It is lovely to hear that your partner seems supportive. I am really sorry to hear you are struggling today though. What usually helps you when you are experiencing spasms?

    I hope you have a good day soon. In terms of how I cope with fibromyalgia, different people cope in different ways, but I find the heat really helps me and comfy (multi-layered) clothes!  :)

    Crime books and the airport city game sound great. It is really important that you know what you enjoy. I am sorry to hear you feel sad about the news about Ukraine too  :(
