Naperville Fibromyalgia Meetup Group

  • Sep 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Welcome!  At the April meetup we decided that at the May meetup we would compare prior illnesses, events, etc.  If you think of something you want on the checklist please text or email it to me in the next couple of weeks.  I'll put together a list to use at the meetup.

Please note - May meetup is on Tuesday, May 7th!

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're all about keeping things positive and helping 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

    Good meeting. A lot of information exchanged. Learned some new things. It was good to meet some new people in the group. I wish more people had shown up. How are you Melanie?

    I so agree with Kristen. our last meeting was small, only 3 people. but an intruder attended , that is not a chronic pain sufferer and tried to "sell" us a useless supplement. I hope she does not return and got the idea she is not welcomed. we need to support each other and our most personal issues are not for "salespeople".

    I hope we get a good sized group! It was great to see another new face (Kathy) however this months meeting wasn't really a good representation of what our meeting truly are as they are generally awesome. We sadly had very few of us and then a major intruder bashed into the meeting which made things uncomfortable. Hopefully baby will still be hanging in my belly and we'll be able to make it! I missed seeing all of our regulars! Hope everyone is doing well.
