The Secret Life of a Fibromyalgia Patient

Posted Mar 19 2010 12:00am

I don’t get a chance to write on this blog as much as I’d like to.  But I just came across a post by a member of BlogHer that was so powerful I just had to share it here…

Her name is Edwina and her post is titled Fibromyalgia+ The Type “A” Personality = Chaos, Frustration and Near Insanity and I can totally relate.  Here’s an excerpt from her post about the trials and tribulations of living with the debilitating symptoms of Fibromyalgia…

The commercials you see on television about a certain drug to help control the symptoms of FMS is SO FAR OFF THE MARK! “Fibromyalgia is explained as wide spread pain that doesn’t go away.” Ummm, wow, what an oversimplification! You wanna know what FMS is really like? Step into my twisted world for a moment and allow me to explain.

Wide spread muscle pain: I like to call it, “Guess what hurts and win a cookie!”
