About Me: Female, 67, Fort Collins, CO, member since Nov 2011
Well, I am originally from the S.F. Bay area moved to Colorado after becoming disabled a year ago. (Husband dumped me when I got sick) I stay indoors most of the time because of light sensitivity which causes migraines. My migraines are not typical and feel like the flu
[More] rather that headaches. My fibromyalgia is in my whole core to the bone so between the two I can have whopper intestional distress and pain. Other parts can hurt too. Then depression. Oh well. When I feel ok I love to cook. International and organic. I've traveled, coached track and weight lifting, took art classes, built computers, worked at a winery. Last trip I took was to Alaska. I'm interested in research being done at Stanford on fibromyalgia. FYI it took YEARS to get diagnosed! During that time I was abused by my husband and mistreated by doctors. Don't give up!!!
