It is refreshing to have a Dr. who understands what a Fibromyalgia patient goes thru,my experience with Dr.'s has been awful it took them 3 years to finally tell me that I have it,and that I am not crazy.There are only 2 pressure points in body that don not have pain.I have quietly suffered alone with this.I have been teased by my friends,those who teased me are no longer my friends.I would rather have one understanding friend that supports me than 10 who teased me.I am looking forward to reading the books you have published.Today I am no longer alone.Thank youView Thread
I only recently found out about this site.I have had fibromyalgia for over 3 years.I don't have any support system to go to,so I feel like I am alone in dealing with this.My healthy friend's try tell me all the time my pain is in my head and maybe a good therapist would be good for me.At this moment it is exciting to find out I am not alone ,that there are other's out there with Fibromyagia and I can get support and understanding when I am having a bad day.It get's very frustrating when people do not understand what your going thru.When I am having an energetic day I get accused of being s drug addict.So I hope to hear from you or anyone else.Thank you for taking the time to read this.View Thread
