Fibromyalgia Awareness Day

Fibromyalgia Affects Everyone

As someone who suffers from this horrible illness I am glad there is a day set aside to help educate other people. Far too many people still say, "but you don't look sick." Far too many incompetent or at least uneducated doctors say, "Its in your head, you just need happy pills." when they cant figure out how to help you instead of just saying that your illness is beyond their abilities. Or just as bad, they half way treat you but are too scared by the propaganda of Big Pharma to fully treat you so that you can feel better and have a longer life expectancy.

As part of the "education" day here are some of my favorite links where I go for advice and hope.

He is a brilliant doc and if I had the resources I would drive out to TX so that I could get treated by his clinic.

A gigantic database of related news from around the world.

Its got the spoon theory and lots of links and resources. Not to mention some funny merchandise!
