Welcome to Living with Fibromyalgia! We’re happy to have you join. My name is Elana and I’m the Ben’s Friends intern for this community. I’m glad that you were able to find some relief once you got your diagnosis. Hopefully having that diagnosis has helped you find some successful treatments. How are you doing now? Have there been any improvements? I saw in your profile that you want to return to painting. I hope that you will be able to do that soon. I wanted to give you a few tips that will hopefully make navigating the site a little bit easier. If you want to contact a community member, you can get their information by clicking on their avatar (the circle with a letter or image next to their username). The search bar can be pretty useful for finding information discussed in past posts. If you want, you can create your own discussion posts by selecting the “+” button on the bottom right corner of the homepage. I like to tell new members about this option because creating a discussion post is a great way to ask questions specific to your situation and it allows other community members to get to know you. If you are unsure of what to post, a simple introduction sharing your experiences can be a good starting point. You are welcome to reach out to one of the moderators or me if you have any questions about navigating the site. Also, I just wanted to mention that I think your username is very cool! Is there a story behind it?
Wishing you all the best,
