If you are a crocheter and suffer from a chronic pain disorder, I would love for you to join this new and exciting support group.  We enjoy friendships, supportive chat and simple slow-paced crochet swaps:))

CROCHETING WITH CHRONIC PAIN:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Crocheting_With_Chronic_Pain/

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and depression almost 5 years ago. I had to leave the workplace and am currently fighting for disability benefits. If it were not for my WONDERFUL, understanding and loving family and my love for crochet I don't think I would be where I am today. Crochet is my therapy....as well as spending time with my many furbabies. Yep....I'm also a HUGE animal lover and have many furbabies:))

HOPE TO SEE YA THERE!!!

Oh boy can I relate to you.I have RA in my shoulder and arthritis in my hands.It really acts up when the weather changes.I try to do crochet but I have to do it when my hands & shoulder isn't hurting.Right now it's an on & off again thing. Undecided.Especially with all the weather changes due to seasonal changes & the hurricanes.Sure has messed up my crocheting  Cry.But maybe when the weather settles down I can really get going on my projects.But it's really tough.Hope everything works out for you.(sending + thoughts) Smiley

Ooh I want to join too.  where are you.  I broke my neck and back 3 years ago and crochet helped me get my dexterity back!  I also have lupus so it is just piling on me.  crafting is my only link to sanity at this point.  I can crochet lying down!
