Great to be here, perhaps when my brain fog clears I'll contribute some art.

Hey all, I was diagnosed with FMS in 2011 but have had symptoms since the age of 13 (now 25) I have set up a Facebook group, page and Twitter for all Spoonies in the hope of raising awareness!

Page: [link] /
Group: Fibromites with Hope /
Twitter: @visiblehope

I also design a newsletter called 'Visible Hope" for spoonies, chronic pain fighters :) which has been really successful.

I also suffer from PTSD, BPD, Depression and Anxiety, Migraine, OCD, EDNOS and BDD. So, I find it very hard at most times!

IF you have any questions or would like some advice, I'm always here to support <3
I'm looking to make some friends who also have the illness and enjoy art.

Thank you xxx

Hi Everyone...
I am so glad i found this group
I have been dealing with these 'illnesses' alone for a long time.
First diagnoses was in 1999 but i was ill before then.
Friends and family try to understand but its hard for them to relate.
I have ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, PMDD (Premenstrual dysphoric disorder)
arthritis in my hips, and anxiety. Im a total mess :(
but i am getting through it and i have a wonderful mate who supports me.
Looking for friends with same or similar conditions.
I will support you and i understand you

"It's an illness that takes your life, but it doesn't kill you." - Victoria Reeves

It'd be cool to have a stamp that says that. At least the "takes your life, but doesn't kill you" part. I can picture something with bright colors that fade away into grayness and fog...

I could do it, but I'm too tired. :P If anyone else wants to, I wouldn't need any credit whatsoever. I just wan it to exist. ;)
