What are the main symptoms of you or your family member?

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

How long have you or the your family member been dealing with FMS/CFS?

Since 1995, I went on a cruise and returned home. My body was never the same, had Mal de Debarquement Syndrome, Sea Legs, Chronic Migraines, chronic pain began.

What helps you to feel supported in coping with this illness?

My Family, The FMS/CFS Support Group, & Friends are my way of coping as well as pain medicine, Trigger Pt Inj., Acupuncture, Meditation, Naps when necessary.


I've suffered from FM for a longtime. I get out of bed each day, call a sick friend with MS. This distracts us from our pain & this keeps me going. My friend & I laugh at pain, memory loss, limitations throughout our days. Share your pain with me.
