    Calling out of work

    This^ yes you need to document everything. You also may want to consult an attorney. Yea its costs, but the attorney can advise you the best course of action

    Serious stress

    Another thing to consider is the quality of health care. Research Hospitals and doctors and see where the good ones are. And while I would love to have you as a neighbor, Florida stinks as far as health care. Unless you want to pay 2K for concierge medicine, the docs here are mediocre at best.

    Newly Diagnosed and unsure

    I recall going to bed one night and being in pain. I couldnt even put on my soft flannel jammies without cringing. I thought I was going bat #*$% crazy. I am thinking this cant be real, it must be all in my head. Perhaps I can just think it away, or put it aside and it will go away; mind over...

    Feel ignored

    Ya know for the next fibromyalgia awareness day or some other day about invisible illnesses, we should cover ourselves with large stickers each with a symptom, so the invisible will turn visible.
