In my first article on this I wrote about how important to have support in dealing with fibromyalgia. I reiterate that the support of your family and friends is very important but being able to talk to someone, either in person or on a blog site, that has gone through what you are experiencing is equally important. It doesn’t matter if you are newly diagnosed or have had fibromyalgia for several years; having contact with someone like you is important. We all need that ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on once in a while. I’m lucky, my neighbor has it too and we support each other when we have a bad day.
There’s a really good site that can put you in touch with a fibromyalgia support group in your area. As well as that, they have a multitude of other links on their site. You can research fibromyalgia from most any angle. What it is, symptoms, who can get it, treatments and prognosis are just a few of the topics you can link to through this site. Follow the link in this paragraph and then explore. I refer to this site often to catch up on the newest news on treatment. I just put “fibromyalgia support groups and the state I live in” in the search bar and came up with several sites to check out to find one near my city. If you do some research you can, very possibly, find a support group in your area.
You can also find one on line to participate in. On these sites you can find blogs from individuals all over the country and you can add your own. The one I’m looking at now lets you join for free. Free is almost always good. Right? In this case it is.No matter how you find a support group to participate in it could be a benefit to you to search one out and participate.
