Hello and welcome to our family. Like you, many of us believe that we suffered from this illness for quite a long time prior to our diagnosis. We were also very relieved to finally be diagnosed and to have a name for all of the things that have been ailing us over the years.
Now that you have a diagnosis, please take some time to roam around our forums here; read the stickys at the top of each forum as they are filled with excellent information, and feel free to join in on any conversation that you like and/or to start a conversation of your own.
You are now amongst people who understand, who truly care, and who want you to know that you are not alone. Again.....welcome.
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
