I have become well versed in fibromyalgia and run support groups in and around my hometown. If anyone has and questions or concerns feel free to ask me anytime. Chances are I....

    Lessons Learned about Fibro Pt. 1

    Hello Everyone, I am writing this post in order to help others who have been suffering with this diagnosis. I was diagnosed with this and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS in 2012. At that time there was not a lot of information out there and even fewer doctors who had come across this. I was initially sent to a psychiatrist for "behavioral modification" in order to address this as it was much more commonly thought to be a psychiatric disorder instead of a neurological one. Thankfully the....

We know its been studied & is a well documented symptom. We are NOT lazy people! Did you know that mostly very well educated, intelligent, driven & successful young ladies are the common recipients of this disease? That's my story, too. I was never happier in my life .when I became ill. We fight....
