I am a middle aged women who was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia on May 7, 2008 with years of symptoms. I reside in Northern California with my fiance and our 4 children. I love cooking, gardening, watching ice hockey, the great outdoors, card making, arts and crafts.

This illness has enabled me to do a lot of the things I really enjoy and love through out the years.

I'm not a very good writer and I sometimes have a hard time expressing myself. I did However, want to create a place to share, educate, inform and come together regarding this difficult condition we share.

I will post personal experiences from time to time.
