@faithwalker007 Hi Renee, I appreciate you writing, I have fibromyalgia and I know how hard it is, even with our faith. I love what you said about honoring the ones before us. I’ve never thought of it that way and there have been times I wanted to throw it all away. I cannot stand and walk gingerly with a walker. Tomorrow I go to a new pain doctor and I’m praying for help. Nice to meet you….Karen

@elmay Hi elmay! What an awesome attitude! I enjoyed your post, and look forward to “talking” with you more. I also have fibro and have rheumatoid arthritis. The pain greatly affects my life and I’m working on improvements. I’m 62 today! ……..Karen

@kodiac6919 Hi Darin, You’ve got my support! When were you diagnosed? The good thing about Connect is that everyone seems to chime in and offer a shoulder. I have fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. My pain is concentrated in my shoulders, back, and knees, but with fibro, it can be everywhere. I see a pain specialist. Do you? ………Karen

@artscaping Hey Chris!!! It means so much that you took the time to explain things to me. I do have to buy on line so I didn’t have someone to help last time. I did have an awful experience with the taste of it! I used it faithfully, but dreaded dosage time! I read somewhere that they have pills???? Obviously it would be slower acting, but could be an option. So thanks again for helping! I’ll probably be bugging you again……Karen

@eifeltower Hi Bonnie! Thanks for letting me know! I guess only the ones who had good luck with it were writing in so I never knew of anyone for whom it failed. Plus it’s expensive!!! I didn’t want to keep experimenting when it cost so much…. Karen

@patrick17 Hi Patrick!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write. It does make me feel better to know I’m not the only one! I’m sorry about your nerve pain. How long have you had it? I have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia. Pain definitely affects my moods & relationships. I wish there were better answers……..Karen

@johnbishop Hi John, thank you for the article. I must be the only person in the world who tried CBD oil and got no help. Maybe I wasnt taking a strong enough dose, but where do you get that info? I had no idea what strength or how much. It’s bewildering. ……..Karen

@gingerw I am grateful for you!!!! You uphold so many others – I am now upholding you. I am praying for your health (mental – no worries-and physical). Also that Mother Nature keeps her distance. You are a ray of sunshine in our sometimes bleak world. Thanks!!!!……Karen
