How I Really Feel About My Disease Fibromyalgia.

  • Cindy Pezzin

    All that is so true. Tired from the time I get up till I go back to bed again. I didnt sleep well last night, 4 hrs isnt enough for me to cope with all that goes with Fibro. How are you doing ?

    Hi Cindy, Thank you for your response. I have been studying fibromyalgia since around 1998, and am now learning more about the world of "invisible illness" and chronic pain syndromes. I do not suffer from any of them myself. I am just a concerned outsider and trying to raise awareness. One of my best friends has it, and so I do this for her as well. The comment above came with the pin.

    I don't have the condition myself, Cindy. One of my best friends has it, and I have been studying it since around 1998. I think I have read every book written on the subject. On Pinterest I have been learning a lot about the world of "invisible illnesses".

    You are so good to do all this research for your friend. You may of told me that it wasnt you, Im just so tired I cant remember things.

    No problem, Cindy. I know it is part of the illness experience.
