Hi everyone. I just joined this community and could really use some guidance. I have never been formally diagnosed with fibromyalgia by a medical doctor, only by an herbal specialist. I have been struggling just about every single symptom for about 5 years, though it's really become worse over the last 2 years. Long story short, I have no insurance and do not qualify for medical assistance so I haven't gone to the doctor in years. I have been searching for a doctor with a sliding fee or payment program but haven't been able to find any information. I have no idea where to start and I feel so overwelmed. I just know I can not live like this anymore, the pain has been so bad lately that I am having trouble working or doing most daily activites. I want so badly to have some relife, but I do not want to live on pain killers for the rest of my life either. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can start to find treatment (and an actual medical diagnoisis) that is affordable to a young person that doesn't make alot of money? I have been searching for hours online but haven't found much. Thank you for any suggestions, I feel that I am at rock bottom.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
