FMS Awareness Camapign

Fibromyalgia doesn't just cripple the sufferers it tackles and attempts to take out the family and friends as well. This year I'm going to try and help to educate my community and the world. My hope is to educate, inspire and give FMS sufferers a way to cope. I have been suffering from FMS for just over 4 years. Educating my family and friends has been hard and exasperating @ times. People don't always understand my pain because they can't see it. My hope is to create awareness so the world will see, our pain may be invisible but it is NOT non-existent.

May 12 is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day my goal is to educate @ least 100 people and 2 organizations about the effects of FMS on the sufferers, friend and families. Join me and help make us VISIBLE.

Some things you should know

I have been remiss in stating that I have been keeping a written journal with my thoughts and feelings.  It is dated and when my hand recovers from the surgery I will be under going tomorrow I will finally be able to upload them to the computer. 

I'm sure many of you have probably been wondering why this has stayed empty and I have been filling it.  It's just that I don't own a laptop and my office is in the garage.  With my Fibro and recently the injury to my hand I have found it easier to write down my thoughts.  My intention is to eventually post them and I will date them accordingly, no worries.

As for the upcoming surgery hmmm.  I am not really worried about the surgery but after the surgery has me a little concerned.  Fibromites just do not handle pain well.   Our pain receptors are totally jacked up and well I guess will we just have to see.
