I am helping a friend, Deanna, spread the news about a serious and often undiagnosed condition known as Fibromyalgia. Seems like to me the further medicine and treatments advance the more chronic illness’ plague us, don’t you think? Sadly some doctors still think it’s all in our heads. ARGH! When is some really techno geeky genius gonna invent a machine that actually and accurately measures pain? I believe it’s true that some people can tolerate more pain or certain kinds of pain better than others. For instance the age old idea that if men had to squeeze a baby out their wee lil’ man the pro-creation process would come to a screeching halt. Why can a paper cut hurt so badly it brings tears to one’s eyes yet broken ribs are merely uncomfortable? It’s maddening I tell you! I know some of you, my dear, dearest internets suffer from fibromyalgia both diagnosed and undiagnosed.
So many of us on the www have illness and what nots that makes socializing in RL a bit harder than for the average un-pained people out there. The internet has opened a vast data base of information in terms of education, discovery and community. Please check out the web site I have linked to in this post. Don’t be one of the many that continues to suffer with pain without a “cause”
Please be sure to pop over to Deanna's Blog, she has a few post about it and will tell you way more better than I about this issue.
