    Developing fibromyalgia is a life-changing experience—but some people are able to use that experience as an inspiration to turn their lives in a positive direction.

    Of course life after a diagnosis of FM is not the same as life before. Sometimes it’s even better! Our new feature, “Before and After,” highlights individuals whose lives have changed for the better despite their diagnosis of FM—or even because of it.

    How has fibromyalgia provided a positive turning point in your life?

    Did FM inspire you to take control of your health?
    Did FM inspire you to seek a different career path?
    Did FM inspire you to develop new skills?
    Did FM inspire you to accomplish something amazing?
