Why Fibromyalgia Has a Credibility Problem

On top of their daily struggle with pain, fibromyalgia patients are sometimes forced to fight another battle—convincing doctors, friends, coworkers, and others that their condition is real and that their pain is not all in their head.

Women suffer disproportionately from fibromyalgia, the symptoms are complex, and there is no cure. For these reasons, many patients and some doctors say that fibromyalgia is under-recognized and undertreated in the U.S.

Read the rest here.

Watching my most beloved friend in the entire world live life with this disease is heart-breaking. It is way past time for our society to understand and realize this disease is real and that effective treatment to minimize it's effects needs to be found as soon as possible.

For more information on this very real condition, please visit the website of the National Fibromyalgia Association.

Thank you.

Happy Anniversary to us!

Yesterday was our fifth wedding anniversary.

Here we were on our wedding day.

Here's how we look nowadays.

Snoopy Boo is a big boy(After all, he's now 9 years old!), but he's a little dog!

Smoke E. Bones continues to scratch out a place in our hearts(and the occasional flea). He's 5 years old today!

And of course, Jimmy is as cute and silly as ever!

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon!

Jimmy is 23 months old today!

There's no big celebration, or anything like that. We just love our little guy and want to share him with the world.

Jimmy has done an awful lot of growing since my last post. He's walking, talking(and running), loves Elmo and is a very happy little baby man. We love you Jimmy!
