The Richmond Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Support Group Pages

The Richmond Fibromyalga Meetup Group has, at its heart, a group of great people who have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome, hereafter referred to as FMS. We meet three times monthly, once in the evening (Hopewell) and twice during the day (Midlothian and Central Richmond). We have traditionally met to discuss our issues and concerns, get to know each other, and share the many ways we have found to cope with daily living with FMS. We are always looking for suggestions to improve our support in every way, including additional content for the website and suggestions for meeting topics and/or possible speakers.

Our daytime meetings at Aunt Sarah's in Central Richmond and Dolce Vita in Midlothian are well-attended, and we will continue with those locations for the forseeable future. The evening meetings are at First Christian Church in Hopewell, and the address and directions are on the calendar with the meeting announcements. The room where we meet is comfortable and cozy, with plenty of space and cushy opholstered furniture. Drinks and snacks are permitted.

If you have been diagnosed with FMS, live with or know someone with FMS, or are in any way affected by FMS, you are welcome to join our group and participate in our meetings and any other events we may plan in the future. We welcome suggestions for speakers and activities that will enhance both our knowledge of FMS and our ability to cope. These suggestions may include other outside activities that allow us to get to know each other better, as we believe that support begins with understanding. The better we get to know each other, the more we will understand each member's needs, and the better our support will be.

If you are new, please take a look at the messages that have been posted, and feel free to join in, even if the message you are looking at has been "quiet" for a while. We want to know what's on your mind! There is also a "files" section, and new content is being added there on a regular basis. Before you make your first post, please scroll down and read the "rules" of the group or you can find them by clicking on this link http://fibromyalgia.m...

Check back regularly for new events on the calendar, new discusssions, and new content in the files area. We want to hear from you!
