I am a 24 year old male from the United States and I am in the process of being diagnosed/treated for something that has been described to me (by doctors) as fibromyalgia related.
For most of my life, I have had mild anxiety and depression and was most recently diagnosed with GAD. When I was...
I was wondering whether anyone else would like to share their own experiences regarding mental illness and its correlation with fibro.
I've always been a very sensitive introverted child. Growing up I started self injurying mainly because life would simply be too much for me. I'd worry...
I completely respect the medical community - from the many hardworking, dedicated researchers, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, psychologists, counselors etc. I am also very sure that there are teams all around the world, people who are currently devoted to finding the cause and cure...

So - goes without being said that I've had a lot of procedures, both under anesthesia and awake. They are not fun and I don't wish them on anyone...
