My Journey in life living with a chronic illness.... Fibromyalgia.
Hello, and welcome to my Blog! I hope this page helps everyone understand Fibromyalgia and what it's like to live with this chronic illness. I'm not looking for sympathy and I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me, I just want people to understand this illness. I hope that you learn something from my Blog. All I ask for is a little understanding and kindness... and from those who Pray... a little prayer for strength maybe? Thanks for following my Blog! Loves, Tab

Just a few words to get started....
Hmmm Where do I start? ;) I think I will start off by explaining why I wanted to start this blog. I wanted to start this blog for a number of reasons, one of them is to raise awareness about Fibromyalgia and Autism. I have a son who will be 11 years old in February who has Autism. He was diagnosed at the age of 4 and a half, he is verbal and is high functioning. As for my diagnosis of having Fibromyalgia, it was the day after my sons Birthday! I was diagnosed in February of 2009. I also wanted to start this blog so I had a place to go... a place to spill my guts and hopefully by doing so, it would help people understand exactly how it is living with Fibromyalgia. many people do not understand the illness, or even believe in it. Believe me it is VERY REAL! There are doctors out there that make it tough on us FMS (Fibromyalgia Syndrome) patients, and they don't believe in the illness. It's totally insane that they don't believe in the illness... Because it is painfully real! More and more awareness is getting out there, and more and more doctors are seeing the studies and becoming believers. So, Just a warning ahead of time... You might see me come in here and totally vent... This I need to do because holding the frustration inside of me will only cause me to go into a Fibro flare. This is my blog... and you will see the rawness in my journey living with FMS. Hopefully my venting will help you learn something, and understand what I'm going through and other FMS patients are going through. I'm going to post some links about FMS and all of the symptoms... PLEASE take the time to read them. not onlt will I ne posting personal blogs from me, I will also be posting facts about Fibromyalgia and Autism. Well, I think that is all for now... stay tuned and I'll be posting more stuff. Right now I'm in the middle of a blasted Fibro Fog! So I have no idea what else to write at this time... Oh... For those of you who do not know what a "Fibro Fog" or "Fog" is... It's when our minds are filled with foggyness and we cannot think straight, Sometimes it's like our words are stuck in our heads and we can't get them out the way we want. So if you see my grammer not being proper, or something misspelled... it's probably because of a "Fog". I'm in a horrible flare up from the fibro right now, I really over did things for Christmas and then rushed off to Vegas for a few days! I'm really paying for it now... the pain is really bad and my mind is in a big time fog. Anyway... Goodnight all! Loves <3
