    Hi, Everyone:

    The Rehabilitation Center where I go for my FMS support group and my pool therapy class, called me yesterday and asked me if I was interested in being interviewed by a reporter at our local newspaper for an article they are doing on chronic pain and invisibile illnesses. Of course I said yes and thanked them for thinking of me! They said they would give my name to the reporter and the reporter would be contacting me in a few days.

    The article will be in the paper around the middle of February. I am so thrilled-more awareness of FMS and other invisible illnesses!

    It was so nice to come into work this morning and see all the messages wishing me good luck on the newspaper article. I will type the article on here so everyone here can read it. Hopefully my hands and arms won't hurt as much as they have been lately!

    Cindy - I had to laugh at the "little guy" mooning me instead of clapping. But I know you meant clapping!
