My Story:
I'm a middle-aged woman who was dx'ed with FM in March 2005. My doc and I are managing my illness well, with little to no pain most of days. I lost 35 lbs in 2012 - the weight I put on with the meds for FM!

I'm a fanatical knitter, always have two or three things going at the same time. I knit for charity, donating at least 50 pairs of mittens to a local charity named "Christmas is for Kids". I'm married (30 years in 2013!); childless (the dog doesn't count); and I have 13 nieces, 15 nephews, and four "greats" and a set of "greats" due in January 2015.
