Hi everybody my name is Brett and while I don't have fibro myself the 2 most important women in my life suffer from it. Both my mother and my girlfriend were diagnosed after their chemo sessions. They beat cancer thank god but now have to deal with fibro. My mother is on medication which seems to help her but nothing seems to help my girlfriend. We've been dating for awhile now and she means the world to me but as winter approached she warned me that her fibro gets really severe and she's not the same person. I can't bare to see her like this so I was reaching out to this support group to first gain more knowledge on the disease and more importantly get your feedback on what I can do to help her through this. Thank youView Thread
The reason I joined was because we were talking marriage and having a family. I wanted to find out what I was in store for but regardless of how tough the road ahead would have been I was ready I truly loved and supported her but she did not feel the same way she doubted me.View Thread
Well unfortunately we did not make it I'm not sure what happened but I'm going to continue to try and understand fibro in the off chance the next woman in my life may suffer from it as well. You guys are really great people and and truly opens my eyes to it thanks again.View Thread
