There is hope. We are the support systems for the loved ones suffering from Fibromyalgia. I have lived with Fibromyalgia in my house for almost two decades. Several of my friends have fibro and look for support within their friend or family circles. I've seen the frustration, sadness, lost hope and despair that affects the sufferer, the spouse, and the rest of the family. My article published in Fibromyalgia Life and Chronic Pain Magazine; Issue 5 "In My Shoes" was the beginning of my awareness of the need for support. We, the family and friends, are a silent group hurting on the inside with little direction. Married to Fibro is that direction, the support group for help.

Over 5 million people have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in the United States alone. Ten percent of those diagnosed with fibro are men. That means ninety percent of the sufferers out there are moms, wives, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and girlfriends with Fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Through my experiences and successes, Married to Fibro is a book of learning, education and hope. I am proof! Today is the day you and your loved ones start living a new life after the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Dive into my life, my findings and new found hope. As you learn more about the disorder and find that there is support, you will become a better, stronger, more joyful you in the light of supporting someone living with Fibromyalgia. Start loving and living today!
