Naperville Fibromyalgia Meetup Group

Welcome!  At the July meetup we listed other ailments that accompany our Fibromyalgia and symptoms we experience.  We talked about making another list so we can compare prior illnesses, events, etc.  We are interested in seeing how many common denominators there are between us in our Fibromyalgia journey.  If you think of something you want on either checklist please text or email it to me.  I'll put together a list to use at the meetup.

We all know how difficult it is to motivate someone with Fibromyalgia.  That makes this news even more important.  There's a lot of self-motivation going into attending.  Yea for us!  Please think about how much better you'll feel just from getting out and meeting new people!  This meeting does that for me and others each month.  Please join us and see what you've been missing.

We always try to keep our meetup positive and help each other move forward, not backward. You can share or just listen. The subject matter changes monthly as we see what we're all interested in at the moment. Try it - you'll like it! Believe me, you may not feel like getting out of the house, but you'll feel better after you've been out among people and talked about your troubles or triumphs. It happens to me every time.

If you have any problems locating the meetup, my cell phone number is[masked]-0124. I hope to see you!

Sincerely,

Melanie

    My name is Rachael Delgado. This will be my first support group. I've had fibromyalgia for about 9 months now. My life has completely changed. I am physically, mentally, and emotionally, not myself. I Plan on attending the August meeting.

    Not able to go til I just saw this meeting on Tues stead of Wed.Have a request that members w/o pics try & get 1 on the site.Even thou name tags helpful @ mtgs-since attendance up& we don't move around w/ there is often simultaneous X-talk down a long rather than circular type table--I miss personal comments & many education suggestions. I'm having difficult time putting some faces to names. It took me over a yr to learn how to get a pic on Meet-Up!Also, I've never used Facebook-where last mtg was told Fibro group has active discussions.Please help me find U,& educate me how to make this techno leap to Facebook. TXS, from someone isolated d/t Fibro,ETC. feel more connected & educated.Been having rough time & believe these monthly mtgs & "cyber-support/info discussions" cud help give me chance to C Fibro suggestions or info sources that often can't hear.Often both Western & Eastern approaches,&biochemically,etc.­ unclear. Difficult to impossible to write down plethora of info. Help.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
