Beanly, I see that the New York Times is learning a few things.  They had a scathing article about fibromyalgia last year, I believe, and made it sound like it was all in our heads!  It upset so many people.  Then there was an article called Doctor's Respond to New York Times Article.  I'm not sure if this was in the New York Times or elsewhere but  you can find that article in the Fibro 101 thread.  The learned doctors raked them over the coals.

Good to get the exposure. It made me wonder if it was the insurance companies who "legitimized" fibro because they added the billing code, or the patients...?
