I have Fibromyalgia. I had to take early retirement, lost my house, car, and financial stabilty because of this horrible illness which NHS does not give a **** about. No help for me at all.

    Hello Nelly @nelly and a very warm welcome to you. Sorry to hear you're having such a tough time. Truly. I can honestly tell you that you're not alone, but I don't know if that helps.
    You will almost certainly find some interesting posts about fibro, or by people who suffer from it, in the Dealing with chronic pain thread. Perhaps you could have a look? Joining in a conversation or two is a good way of meeting people.
    In the meanwhile - when you feel up to it - tell us a little more about yourself, and ask any questions you would care to ask.
    We are here for you,
    Warmest best wishes,
