MDJunction to me

mabri"When I was diagnosed about 18 months ago with fibromyalgia, I didn't know where to turn. I got on my computer and looked for a support group where I could talk to other people with the same disease and get some help...Information, suggestions, mostly just what I can do now that I have this.....disorder/disease/syndrome...I didn't even know what to call it. I found MDJ, and yes, there was a support group for fibro. I started a post, and figured I would never get an answer. However, very quickly I was welcomed in, and became really involved in the group. I received help, support, friendship and the feeling of being truly cared about by these strangers who had become like family to me. Now, I have been here for about a year and a half...I have become a group leader, and love every minute of it. It is so wonderful to be able to help others. I still receive help and answers from the members in this group. The fibromyalgia is where I go to help, support, listen, care and even laugh. I don't know what I would do without this group."

littlepea This is going to be my way of trying to cope with my husband's illness. The illness his doctor said he didn't have that nearly killed him on 2-15-09 when his esophagus exploded (my best description of what happened that night).

Easter Sunday

Apr 12 2009

What a beautiful day it is! We went to church this morning, the first time in a while. The service was so nice and it was good to see some of our old friends. Today was a good day for my husbandbut it wore him out, he's in taking a nap now. My day started out with me feeling down but now I'm feeling pretty good, think I'll take a walk outside.

Tomorrow he has an appointment with the hepatologist, we're hoping for a good report on all his blood work.
