Hi All,

I'm 28 and was diagnosed with fibro at 17. I have what my doctors describe as one of the most severe cases they've ever seen. Fatigue is also a huge part of my daily life. My degree is in teaching but I have been able to build my own job and run my own tutoring business, so I still get something in. Most people would never have any idea I'm sick until they see a symptom take me down. It has to be really bad to do that because I perfected the "game face" back in high school when I first got sick. I'm angry and frustrated and typically don't even admit that much.

I tend to be more of a lurker by nature than anything but will do my best to make an effort to post and interact!
