Black friday new member

Hi everyone,

I am really excited about finding a chat room where I can share with other people about my life. Thanksgiving was a blessing this year because we had dinner for 6 here at our house and even though my husband was sick and all the work kept me in a lot of pain, it was important to me just to be able to spend time with some people and be happy. My other family members were at other homes which was fine with me. We don't know how we are going to put everyone in one house for Christmas but I sure would like to share it with my grandchildren and all the in-laws. I'm supposed to be on this special diet for candida and you tell me how you don't eat carbohydrates or sugar at holiday time!! Anyway I am looking forward to getting to know some of you through this group- I spend alot of time with my grandkids and need a little more adult social interaction. Take care.

its great to have u here. i know u will make lots of friends. this a great site. i want to give u a bit of info on the chat room if u leave a message in the main room its possiable no one will see it so u r better off clicking on a name on the left and then trying to chat. i hope to see u there soon

Hi Bailey!

Glad you posted! Welcome to the group! We are very glad to have you with us! I know exactly what you mean about needing adult time. With the exception of the last couple of weeks, trying to get over bronchitis, I too spend a lot of time with grandkids! They still think I'm the greatest! ha! You have to enjoy that while it lasts! ha!

I admire anyone who can be on this strict Candida diet, holiday time will be especially difficult! Birthdays too! There is an ever-growing list of people who are discovering this problem associated with fibro. Hopefully, I am not one, and will not become one, I am dealing with quite enough! Hopefully a little 'cheating' will be okay for you once in a while!

This is a very good group! So nice of you to post!

Wishing you well,


Hi Bailey and welcome! It's great that you had such a nice holiday and still have more family time to look forward to. It's easy for us fibro people to become socially isolated so your talk of family is heart-warming.

There are a lot of nice people here who will help you or else listen to you. This is a great place to come for a lot of different reasons.

I don't know what the Candida diet is but if it means no fun food like sugar, then I agree with you, how can you do it during the holidays? Not so much so!

Welcome and come again.
