Naperville Fibromyalgia Meetup Group

  • Jan 16, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We all know how difficult it is to motivate someone with Fibromyalgia.  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. We have had some great meetings and hope to keep seeing even more people as we grow this into a great group. Each month we've had a few more people.

Here's the address and directions: 2272 West 95th Street Suite 115 Naperville IL 60564 From either Book Road or Naper/Plainfield Rd, turn West on 95th Street. From Route 59, turn East on 95th Street. The building is next to Neuqua Valley High School and has large lettering saying DUPAGE MEDICAL GROUP. Enter the drive between this building and the high school. Drive to the rear of the building and enter there. Suite 115 is the first suite on your left - immediately as you enter! Super easy to locate!

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

Sincerely,

Melanie

    If you're interested, there is an autoimmune walk which is recognizing Fibromyalgia. The walk is on 10/25 in Tinley Park. For more information, please visit www.autoimmunewalk.org You can get a group together, form a group or donate to an existing group. 93% of all proceeds goes towards research, education and awareness. My goal is to raise $1,000 towards the cause. If you would like to donate, even as little as $5, please visit www.autoimmunewalk.org/kellyscrusaders

    FM Research Week continues with researcher Dr. Bruce Gillis as a guest on NFMCPA's www.BlogTalkRadio.com/nfmcpa channel on Thursday, August 14th at 7 PM ET. His cytokine research led to a blood test for FM, the Fm/a Test. What questions would you like to ask him? Dr. Gillis will discuss the study, how it was done, and a follow-up study that was presented at the 2013 American College of Rheumatology meeting. This ground-breaking research is poised to change the way fibromyalgia is viewed by the medical community and help to bring closure to skepticism experienced by people with fibromyalgia.

    It was great to meet everyone, and I did feel comfortable with the group. However, I was disappointed in the fact that there was no information on fibromyalgia for newly diagnosed members (me). I am an upbeat and positive individual who TRIES to look at the bright side of life, and felt that the negative was emphasized constantly. I'm looking for ways to live with fibromyalgia and to continue my active lifestyle with minimal impact on my family and I. I recently celebrated my 60th birthday (1/5), work full-time, am the mother of 3, grandmother of 6, (my latest being born 12/27) and married to my husband for 39 years. I'm hoping that we can share ideas that enhance and improve our lives through diet, activity and discussion. I would like to be able to come home from our group and be able to apply a new concept I've learned to my everyday life, and to help me live with fibromyalgia.
    Sincerely,
    Bo
