    Several years I briefly attended a local Fibro. support group and it was striking how many fair-skinned blondes/redheads were in there room (the vast majority of us)!

    I just browsed a few profiles and all but one of the pics I saw were of, you guessed it, fair skinned ladies.

    Wassup with that??

    I am very fair-skinned. My father is a redhead and I have his skin.

    I haven't pasted a pic yet.

    Don't know how...(-: DH will help if I remember to ask.

    PS I am of English, Irish, and Polish background. I added this after my original post when I read about the ethnic connection. I do fit...and my hair has a lot of red in it, also (and a lot of gray, also...I'm 58.) I also have green eyes...very green. [This Message was Edited on 09/01/2005]

    Fibro is found in women with Celtic or English backgrounds. It seems to be part of the picture so that would fit with that coloring. It is my coloring also. I went to a fibro convention in Washington, if you didn't know better it could have been a family reunion!

    I am ultra-fair, blue eyes, and have dark blonde hair. When I was a child, my hair was almost white, then as I got older, it was blonde. Now .... a really dark blonde!

    My mother's family are part Irish, I think. My brother has done the geneology on my father's side, but I can't remember our hertiage on his side--I would have to look it up.

    I'm a fair-skinned redhead. My mom & daughter both have FM too. Mom's a strawberry blonde and daughter is fair-skinned blonde.

    Maybe you're on to something here! I'd never heard that before.

    DH is EXTREMELY fair skinned with light brown/prematurely gray hair. His mom and aunt, whom also have fibro, are fair skinned with light brown/gray hair.

    Yep me too. I am fair skinned with thick auburn hair,(lots of gray coming in though, got to keep coloring it, uggh. Have big blue/green eyes). My dad is Irish, my mom is English/French.

    Since I can't put a pic in my bio (have an ooooooooold computer) to give you an idea, I look alot like the White House News Correspondent who works for MSNBC, her name is: NORAH O'CONNEL. We have the same hair color, hair cut, face. eyes. It's uncanny, I wonder if she is a long lost half sister? Hmmmmmmmm!!!

    Curious what Baybe said about Fibro being connected to Celtic and English backgrounds. I didn't know that. Was there studies done on that??

    Veeeeeeeery interesting....

    Uh-huh . .

    I too give nature a little help these days, but was always a "golden blondie", turning reddish with blue eyes a fair skin. I don't tan very well, just burn! Hmmmm . . . Never thought of this angle.

    and I never could tan either. I was blonde but my hair has darkened with age so I have to help mother nature out a bit too. My background is mostly Irish.

    I was born with auburn hair which turned very blonde until age 16, and it started getting more of a sany blonde, and I have light skin with green/blue eyes. Very interesting.

    My sister is also a redhead and fair skinned but she does not have either FMS or CFS.

    My skin is very fair, but I used to have very dark - almost black - hair. Now its almost white (at the ripe old age of 53) - so I guess I AM fair haired and fair skinned now :)

    Born a red head. Now a bit more strawberry blondish. Scottish/Irish decent!

    But...my cousin, who also has FM is from the other side of the family and is more dark haired. Hmm.
