The medical community tries its best to explain disease symptoms like fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, the medical community’s explanations do not jive with the experience of someone who has lived with the disease for most of their life.
Bee’s eclectic life is a blog by a 50’s something mother of 2 adult children who has dealt with fibromyalgia most of her life. She provides a chronology of the major events in her life and the part that fibromyalgia has played in them.
Her blog, I hate that fibromyalgia drug commercial, points out the irony of a current television commercial which purports a treatment for fibromyalgia that is mistaken by many people as a cure for the disease. What she says is frustrating is to be told for over 40 years that fibromyalgia was in her head, then to have a drug advertised to treat the symptoms.
Now, with a healthy scepticism, she takes the time to research and consider things before becoming excited. For her there are no cures—yet.
