Thank you Elizabeth and Janet for your kind words.

I hope that you both start feeling better soon too.

I think that it was a relief more than anything after so many years to have a name for the symptoms that have had such an effect on my life. My new doctor is excellent, I hope that he doesn't change practice.

Janet, by the time that I was finally diagnosed I knew that it definitely wasn't 'all in my mind' as I was vomiting from the pain while at work. Plus, my fibro fog was so bad that I would say something (obviously gobbledygook) and when the person I was talking to was laughing (kindly) and asking me what I had just said, I had no idea, and to this day, still don't. Then one day I was asked my name, and I couldn't remember!

It can be frustrating, as through this illness I have had to stop my driving lessons and further education classes for a degree as when my mind goes I can't think coherently. But I try not to dwell on what I can't do, but on what I can.

Sorry for the essay, but it is nice to know people who understand this condition.
