Hi Everyone

I'm Pam and live in Ontario, Canada. I have had fibro since 1993, didn't really 'accept'it until 2002 and have been up and down physically, mentally, and emotionally since then. I think my story is fairly typical - trying all different treatments but have had little success. Lately, I have been really down - I'm going through menopause and I think the hormones are contributing to my mood, fatigue and pain. The doctors have recommended a change in medication - weaning off 3 drugs which will be replaced by one. Hoping this will help, but in the meantime, I am reaching out for a place where everyone "gets it" while I am trying to get out of this slump.

Hello from Canada, Welcome to our family. We all understand what you are going through and we are all here to help. You have come to the right place for support. I was recently diagnosised this past Sept. I had no idea what Fibromyalgia was but, I have been suffering since 1988. All the doctors I went to didn't know anything about Fibromyalgia. I was greatful when I was finally given a name to what I had and then the fear hit me. When I found this web-site, I was lookig for support, information, friends,& understanding. I could not get over how many have this. I was really surprised. We all support each other, there's no judging from anyone and it's great to talk to someone about anything. So Again, WELCOME! God Bless. shortstuff
