I took the pledge for my mother, my grandmother and friends...
For those of you who don't know, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome back in 2006. As much as I love advocating, I wasn't really open to doing so regarding FM because I still haven't "figured it out". How can I tell someone "how I did it"...when I'm still struggling to find a way to do "it" (live a full life with such a debilitating illness).
However, there is no way I can in good conscience, continue to keep quiet about something that affects my life and the lives of my family so greatly...whether I've found it's silver lining or not. If I can do nothing else right now, I can attempt to raise awareness, funds for research & support and to help dispel myths.
I took this pledge for ME.
Take the Family & Friends Pledge to Care to support me or someone you love today.
