Let's Give Krys from Massachusetts a Warm Welcome!

Hi @Krys,

Welcome to the Living with Fibromyalgia community! We’re glad to have you join. My name is Elana and I’m one of the Ben’s Friends interns for the site. It sounds like you have been going through a lot lately. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. My heart goes out to you. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to handle graduate school, while dealing with that and your conditions. I hope you will be able to find some resources on this site that will make it easier for you to manage your Fibromyalgia. This is a very supportive community full of people that have tried various treatments, so it might be helpful to create your own discussion post by clicking on the “+ New Topic” button if you are looking for suggestions or have any questions. Hopefully this helps you get a start here! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the site.

Wishing you all the best,


Welcome to the community, @Krys!
It is wonderful that you have made it to medical school despite your illnesses. With that kind of drive and determination, I have no doubt that you can get the PhD degree you are working toward.
I’m very sorry about the loss of your sister. I pray that you and your family will have peace, and less suffering, each day.
Please feel free to share your thoughts, whether personal or FMS related, with the group. We are here to support you! :blush:
