My Open Letter to Fibromyalgia

I also need to thank you for breaking me down,  physically, mentally and emotionally.

Masking the Pain: Living with Fibromyalgia

I’ve experienced pain in my life before but never this extreme. Some days I wake up and I can’t even move  to get out of my bed. Other days I just stay in bed all day because my entire body hurts so badly and the only comfort is being balled up. Along with this comes many sleepless nights. Some weeks I don’t sleep for nights at a time because I can’t get comfortable and the touch of the sheets on my skin hurt.
