I have added 2 links to videos about fibromyalgia to this blog.
The 2 videos are done by Tom Barillas, who is the husband of Lisa, a woman driven to suicide by the pain of fibromyalgia and the inability to control the pain. The videos were done in 2008 – not that long ago.
I don’t agree with everything in it, as you will know if you have read my other posts about fibromyalgia.
However – it is one of the best descriptions I have ever read, seen or heard about what it is like to live with fibromyalgia.
So listen to them both and maybe send Oprah those emails. She’s going to a new show soon, but that doesn’t mean she will stop doing shows about things that matter.
To those living with fibromyalgia, I know what it’s like – I have lived with it for 44+ years now. I have experienced all of those attitudes from medical professionals, family, friends and strangers. I have also done my own semi-scientific research and been able to find a place that’s livable. I hope you do too.
