    Hi everyone!

    Was just wondering if anyone has Type 1 and also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia?

    There is a good chance that I might also have this aswell as Type 1 and was just wondering if anyone has similar experiences?

    Hi Clare and Lindsay how do u cope with your sugar levels wen your having a bad day with fibromyalgia pain? I struggle so bad that I sometimes give up on myself which I know in turn makes my pain worse but I find it really hard to talk to ppl about it because I feel they won't understand or tell me it's my own fault..
