Hello everyone. I'm not new here, been a member since I think 2008, but I haven't been on here much in the last 2 years. I had a hard time with the change of this site, but also I've been in counseling for 2 years so I haven't used this as my outlet. Also I am almost NEVER on my computer anymore. I keep myself busy with TV, Youtube watching, not recording, although I'd love to figure out how to make a Fibro awareness video with music and pictures. I'm rambling...
I'm reintroducing myself for those who are "new" in the past 2 years. I'm 42, female, divorced, no kids. I have a very dysfunctional family (mom, dad, brother, sister) My extended family has never been part of my life, they are basically strangers and live really far away anyway). I have Fibro and CFS, disagnosed in 2007. My husband left me in 2010. We were married 10 years. I was 33 when he left me. We had no babies, no house, just rented. We were STILL trying to start a life. I have PCOS and infertile because of it.
Diagnosed with Fibro and CFS in 2007 after about 10 years of doctoring. I worked full time since I was 18 but at age 32 I had to leave on disablity and I really thought I would come back, thought I just needed a lot of rest and let new meds work. Didn't happen. Went on Long Term disablility and Social Security disability and basically life has been on pause since then.
I want to connect again with fibro friends. We are the ONLY ones who truly understand how debilitating this can be. I just want some friends.
Take care everyone.

Another Ibs flare - can’t wear my Torrid leggings today - they are just a bit too snug for comfort when I am bloating. Had a light supper but then succumbed to some chips on the evening!! That does not help...I considered trying a dicyclomine tablet last night but did not. I am curious on the effects. Today I might take some gas x midday to relieve symptoms. (If they persist).
