    My mom was diagnosed with Fibro 20 years ago. At the time there were little resources available and she didn’t receive much in the form of outside support. It took me being diagnosed with Latent-Lupus to finally understand her chronic pain and fatigue.

    Thank you for sharing this information to help spread awareness, Brandi!

      I was the same way, Tina. My mom was diagnosed in the early ’90s when it was considered an ‘in your head’ disease. I never realized what she was going through until I experienced it. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Gentle hugs, friend!

    I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year ago and didn’t know much about it and decided to do some research. I find your site very informative and comforting. Thank you for all you are doing.
