It Is What It Is

Started with a new doctor this week. As she palpated my neck and shoulders, she said, ” You need a massage.” I replied, “I had one yesterday.” The look on her face! That’s fibromyalgia. I wore a corset of pain around my ribcage for a day. That’s fibromyalgia. Today I had to leave work after two hours because the fatigue along with the aching and weakness in my limbs were debilitating. My joints ache and so does my mid back. My left temple is randomly throbbing and I can feel it down my jaw and neck. That’s fibromyalgia. That’s one week in the life.

Just providing some info for the skeptics and the people who love people with fibromyalgia. ♡
