Over a week ago I created a new Facebook group called “Fibro Fighters Under 40”. I’ve been wanting to do it for quite some time, and I’m glad I finally did. I felt like those of us that are younger with Fibromyalgia can relate to each other better and need as much support as possible. Our age group is expected to be healthy, active, working, socializing, etc. Fibro obviously limits us from being “normal” young adults. I’m 29 (the big 3-0 in March) and I’ve found out from my own experience that most people can’t wrap their head around the fact that I’m “so young” and in pain. Nothing against older people with Fibromyalgia, of course! Anyway, there are already 50 members in my group, and I think it is already a success. The members are happy to have somewhere to vent, share, and relate to people close in age who are having similar experiences.
So, if you’re on Facebook, have Fibromyalgia, and are under 40, please join us! Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/993810067324193/
Look forward to meeting you!
