How Fibromadness Began:
I created Fibromadness in 2010 to provide an online community for people with fibromyalgia who want to be their best. A Fibro Gal myself, I was diagnosed in 1997, with fibromyalgia. Soon after came diagnoses of bursitis, anxiety,osteoporosis,NASH,IC, Diabetes 2,Raynaud's phenomenon and IBS. I am in the process of getting implants in my mouth due to damage from medications and being sick for so many years. For years I struggled, taking test after test and trying a wide assortment of medications, different therapies.
Over the years I have encountered many situations with people. Many don't know about Fibromyalgia or have heard of it. It is an illness that people just don't get. Some think it is not real and you look fine.
There are plenty of days that I don't feel great - but instead of fighting it, I've learned to roll with the punches and have fun in spite of it. I've had a ton of help, from my doctors,friends and my family too.
Today, I have my good days along with the bad. I've learned a lot along the way about managing each day as it comes. I'm here to share what I know with you, and to create groups for others to share their successes, so that you can be a Fibro Gal or a Fibro Guy too.
