About Fibro Splash

Our main goal is to share encouragement, tips, joys and sorrows in our experience with fibromyalgia, at times conversations can go off-topic. Some of us have been together on the group for so long we are more like family and therefore share personal experiences as well.

As a new member you will be on moderated status. All posts are moderated for appropriateness, for such reasons as preventing advertisements/spam and making sure that content and language is appropriate to a Christian group.

Because we have a large number of active members, you may want to choose the digest version or use the no mail option (read on the web) in order to limit the number of emails you receive.

We truly hope that your “stay” with us encourages you in your daily walk with Christ, that you receive the richness of God’s love through His children, and that you discover what the Lord’s will and plan is for you in this new phase of your journey.


A Note from LeAnn, Fibro-Splash Coordinator

You may be feeling like you're alone with your pain and multiple other symptoms and that no one UNDERSTANDS how fibromyalgia affects every aspect of your life. You may even feel like no one believes that there is anything wrong with you because you look like a normal, healthy, person. If you need supportive, caring, friends who DO UNDERSTAND and BELIEVE that your sometimes odd assortment of symptoms are real you have come to the right place.

My name is LeeAnn. I live in NC. I am married and have 2 daughters, 1 stepdaughter, and 1 stepson, all young married adults. They each have one child, which gives my husband and I four wonderful, precious, grandchildren, three boys and one girl. We are truly blessed!

I suddenly developed fibromyalgia in December of 1996 and was diagnosed in February of 1997. Up to that point, I had never even heard of fibromyalgia! A few months later I was forced (by fibromyalgia) to retire from my job as an Advanced Composite Fabricator, which involved manufacture and repair of structural parts for military aircraft, primarily the AV8B Harrier and CH46 Helicopters.

After being diagnosed I started reading everything I could get my hands on to learn more about fibro and how to help myself, I soon joined a newly formed on-line support group called Fibrofriends, founded by a lady named Kat who lives not far from me in NC. As the group grew larger I offered to help Kat with the group and became a moderator in order to help her to help others. Kat soon joined Rest Ministries as coordinator of Splashes of Joy, a group for women and depression, who also have a chronic illness.

As Rest Ministries wished to expand their outreach to those with fibromyalgia, fibrofriends has moved over to Rest Ministries, with a new name, Fibro Splash! I look forward to continuing on with this group and helping others as we work together to make our lives with fibromyalgia easier.

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones…." Proverbs 17:22

Love, LeeAnn
