Well its the end of another decade. Hard to believe isn't it? But this is another decade that has come and gone with no answers, no cure and many that have no one in their lives' that have acceptance or understanding of their fibromyalgia.
My wishes and prayers for the new decade is: more advocates, warriors, medical professionals, researchers and $$$ for - answers - a cure - to get our lives back.
Too many of us are faced with poverty because we can no longer work and with that comes no health care and more pain, fatigue and fog. Too many of us have lost friends and family due to lack of understanding or acceptance. And FAR too many of us suffer needlessly because there is little to nothing being done to educate our medical professionals on FMS so they continue to consider fibro to be "all in our heads".
We need our voices heard for millions just like you and me. We need to stand up for ourselves and no longer accept things as they are. Only WE fibromites can make this a better world a better place for us and no longer accept one more person suffer as we have.
Write to the AMA (American Medical Association), your Congressman, the Surgeon General.. anyone that you can think of that can lobby for us.
We might not be strong alone.. but we can be strong together. Let's let the world know ... we're mad as hell and we're not gonna take it anymore!!!!
Its a new decade.. the medical industry needs to make it a priority to help us help ourselves.
Love to all.. and Happy New Year!!!
