Haven't been on the site in a few days so I just read your reply. That big dog in my profile picture is Sampson, one of the sweetest animals on the planet and all mine. We love each other with a passion.
I am Polish. All 4 of my grandparents were born and raised in Poland, although my paternal grandmother's birth certificate says Germany. She always said that it didn't matter what it said, she was Polish. At the time of her birth, Germany had invaded Poland (one of numerous times) and declared that what was Poland was then Germany and that Poland did not exist.
My grandparents came to the United States through Ellis Island, I believe around the turn of the 20th century. My maternal grandparents raised Saint Bernards and quarterhorses, so my love of animals might be inherited. Later they opened a Polish tavern in Milwaukee. During prohibition, they made liquor behind a false wall in their tavern. They died before my birth. My paternal grandparents settled in a Polish community in Milwaukee. My grandfather was the night watchman at a local tannery a block from their home. He raised rabbits and pigeons in their backyard. My grandmother cooked rabbit for all celebrations.
I came to this site to find out more about fibromyalgia and to get tips on how to deal with it. Right now Lyrica and Tramadol are keeping my pain to a minimum most of the time. I try to stay un-stressed and relaxed as much as possible as stress greatly affects my pain level. I also come to this site to meet people like you
Welcome to the FM community. We are happy that you found us!
I have also purchased AH bras and find them to work fairly well. I cannot tolerate any pressure on my rib cage so I but AH bras in size 44. I am 5'4" and weigh 160. The main problem with them is that they cost so much. Have you tried Dreamland leisure bras or those from fourcorners?
