Hello Everyone and Thank you for the welcome.
I am 47, raising two wonderful grandaughters and have fibro, arthritis and herniated discs in my neck and lower back. My journey with fibro began 5 years ago with a car accident. Since then I have navigated the maze of doctors, medications and tests, tests and more tests. During the course of this journey I have developed a sensitivity to medications and can no longer take any of the pain meds without being admitted to the hospital for observation because the the severe reactions I have to them. That has made pain management a much bigger challenge, but I am learning ways to deal with it and learning what my triggers are so I can try to avoid them. I am no longer able to do the work that I loved, but on the up side I am now able to be home full time with and for the girls. In fact, being able to be home with the girls is the only good thing I can say about having fibro. I have found ways to help me live with the fog, most days. There are some days when the fog is just too bad, but I muddle through the best I can.
My motto is "I have fibro, fibro doesn't have me". I try to live each day the best I can. I am an avid gardener, have even gotten all the grands into gardening. I have 3 grown children and 10 grands (11th due in jan.). Most weekends I have 3-7 of the kids here, and in the summer they stay for weeks at a time.
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you, and finding my way around here.

Hi Jacki. I'm glad you're here with us. I'm not sure if anyone here has fibro so maybe Brianna can add one for you.

You really have a lot going on and for that I'm sorry. John, Pariah, is a stay at home dad and home schools his kids. So you're not alone here 4U
