Hi All! Just a quick note to share a little about myself. My profile is still incomplete but it does give a fair idea of what I deal with on a daily basis. Sojgren's is still pending confirmation but my docs all opine that they are confident the tests will be conclusive. Thats just based on my symptoms, examination and lab results that are back. Me?? I'd rather wait for the whole enchilada before they tack another name to the board.

I'm trying my best to cope with;

Fibromyalgia

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Intractable Pain

Depression.........Menieres, RSD......crazy but I think I've left something out....

On a positive spin.....I am blessed with a wonderful husband and 4 daughters. My daughters are 28, 26, 15, 12. The two oldest have given me between them 5 beautiful grandchildren. My family is so very understanding of my 'issues' but they can not fully understand my pain. It takes a person who also deals with Chronic Pain to truly get it.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Thanks for reading........

Deb

Hi Deb,

Glad you came on board. I look forward to getting to know you. I have found the fibro boards so wonderful and encouraging. The support here has really strengthened my courage facing this maddening condition. I am always amazed at the warmth and generosity of spirit I find here.

Peace and hugs,

It is truly wonderful here and I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found this place. I hope you find what you need here with us and that you become part of the family.

Laughing Oh My! Thank you all for your wonderful welcome. I'm coming from another support forum where there is too much arguing and not enough caring so I love to see the word 'family'! The support and love I receive at home can not possibly include understanding in the sense of someone who deals with the same stuff I do.

I can't wait to get to know you all better!
