    Hi. I have fibromyalgia and various other conditions (depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, IBS, asthma, trochanteric bursitis, plantar fasciitis...). Generally in pain and exhausted all the time. I work with people with brain injuries which keeps me grounded and feeling grateful that I don’t have anything worse. Currently experiencing a bout of insomnia hence here I am!

    Hello @evadesign and a warm welcome to the community. Sorry I wasn't around last night - I'm often around till one or two AM, but after that my eyes become painful.
    It is good to see you commenting on others' posts already. Thank you for that. Kudos to you for the work you are doing, too. 
    You're likely to find other fibro sufferers, and others facing chronic pain through other issues, at 'Dealing with chronic pain'. Perhaps you could have a look?
    You are very much among friends here, so please don't hesitate to ask us any questions or to tell us more about yourself. The better we get to know each other, the more easily we may find ways to support you.
    Warmest best wishes,

    Thanks :)
    I have a sister who works for Citizens Advice Exeter and another sister who used to work for Consumer Direct, so I get a lot of good advice, but I don't want to put everything on them. I hope I can both give and receive support here.
