Patients Like Me

Posted Dec 23 2008 9:43pm

I found a fabulous new site for people with chronic illnesses called www.patientslikeme.com

It contains several forums for a number of conditions and I was thrilled to find one on fibromyalgia.

Back in 1998 when that was diagnosed, I had two physiotherapists tell me that there was no such disease and therefore they could only treat the symptoms.  They BOTH implied that the pain was all in my head.  I was enraged, disgusted and depressed.

But now that I have been told by a Rheumatologist and a Neurologist that fibromyalgia DOES exist - I’m in heaven!

My condition has a name - it is real.

So finding PatientsLikeMe.com is a blessing - please check them out at www.patientslikeme.com
