I still get surprised.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people feel like they are in this alone. That they are one of only a select few dealing with fibromyalgia. I receive messages like this every day.
Fibromyalgia can feel like you are running into a brick wall over and over again. Sometimes it seems there will never be an end to the struggle and it is hard just to make it day to day. It is hard for anyone else to understand if they are not going through that same struggle.

We are not foolish enough to think that we are the only good resource out there and are more than pleased to share other sites for you to check out often. This article will highlight 5 Fibromyalgia websites you need to bookmark today!
