Daily Teachings 21
"Never try to compel others to change; leave them free to change naturally and orderly because they want to; and they will want to when they find that your change was worthwhile.
"To inspire in others a desire to change for the better is truly noble; but this you can do only by leaving them alone, and becoming more noble yourself."
CHRISTIAN D. LARSON (1874-1954)

BEFORE APPLYING FOR AN ACCOUNT HERE PLEASE READ BELOW. THIS ISN'T YOUR TYPICAL "ANYTHING GOES" FREE FOR ALL SITE.
After you open up a Free Account the read only areas, about 80% of the site, will become visible to you. We also have interactive areas of this site where you can participate in realtime. These are the areas that we use a verification process for everyone's privacy and safety.
My name is Ken Euteneier and I humbly invite you to our site. Fibrohugs is a friendly and supportive place where sufferers of Fibromyalgia, their families and friends, have been coming for tough love, gentle hugs, and lifelong friendships since 1998. You will learn about Fibromyalgia, and ways we can help ourselves to fight this horrid disease. You'll find many supportive people on our Message Forums with whom you can ask questions, talk about problems, or just have a friendly shoulder to cry on. Or if you would like some immediate answers or comfort please know that you will find that in our Chat Rooms.
Most of all I know first hand, as I suffer myself, the struggles that Fibro bestows upon us and I will not add a financial burden to you. That is why the cost to use this site for an entire year is less than taking a friend out for just one decent meal. But it's important to have some kind of charge for verification purposes because free sites invite all types of people that love to be troublemakers, harassers, perverts, stalkers, and all the other Internet Predators.
Verification helps to manage the following:
- Assure people are not impersonating others as their IP Address is attached to their login actions.
- Gives people a reason and commitment to adhere to site guidelines.
- Cuts down on Internet trolls & troublemakers as they prey on free sites where they can remain anonymous.
- Reduces or eliminates fights and bullying as these are grounds for being banned from the site. Constructive disagreements and varying opinions are acceptable, outright rudeness is not.
- Opens up areas of the site where Professionals give their knowledge, advice, and help where requested.
- Verification gives all Members peace of mind, privacy and comfort that they have a safe place to share their feelings as well as a wealth of knowledge and information to help ease their current illness situation.

This site has been created because of the numerous requests for privacy with a more comfortable and helpful environment for people dealing with chronic illness. We maintain a zero tolerance level when it comes to making sick people deal with additional stress. Our goal will always be 100% for the protection of our Members. Whether their goal is to get back to living a functional, productive, meaningful, enjoyable, peaceful, or healthy life we will travel with them side by side.
We welcome everyone to join but understand this site won't be for everyone. This is a private individual site, no Corporations involved, and we verify each Member that joins. Know that there are virtually hundreds of totally free sites on the Internet and we are one of the few that charge a minimal fee to reach certain areas of the site. The fee is not so much about helping to defer the costs to me personally but more so a way of verifying that the people coming here are sincere in both who they are and what their intentions are. You can be assured any information requested is secure as I've run this site for over 20 years with over 50 thousand registered Members and have never had so much as an email address compromised. As well in those 20 some years we have been responsible for creating friendships that are still sincere today, have had marriages happen because of meeting here, and have saved almost a dozen lives due to drug reactions and self harm incidents. That is not our purpose at all but just a few side effects that have happened because of our sincerity to our Members.
Membership costs will be minimal like $5.00 if you pay monthly or you can pay $36.00 and be covered for a full year. If you feel that this is something that you've been looking for please contact me through the "contacts" link at the top right of this page and send me a message. We are also on Facebook which is a completely free site, and will stay a free site, but we just can't control the problems that continue on those types of sites.
