Mary, treasurer of the support group, said she had been relieved to discover the group existed after her diagnosis.
“With the support of people from the fibro group, and a better medical understanding of what all means, I find that I am now able to manage my condition in the knowledge that there are a lot of us out there,” she said. “I have got to meet a lot of lovely people and made some good friends.
“I think the biggest thing I have benefitted from was realising that fibromyalgia is an individual journey and that not everyone reacts the same, which is why I suspect it has taken so long to become a proper diagnosis.”
She manages a facebook page ‘West Berkshire Fibromyalgia Support’, where people can find more information.
