Wow! I was 40 before I heard about Fibromyalgia.
After spending 6 years working (in the 'real' world) and studying to get my law degree, half of which I suffered (literally) with depression, I was able to 'practice' law for one whole month before the debilitating purple wave took over my life - FIBROMYALGIA!
Unlike many, I have NOT learned to manage this condition so I am not working and I spend alot of time on my couch.
So I've decided to share this time with you (who may be real people or may just be the 'ether').
