This is what my grandmother's cousin told his niece after she was diagnosed with fibroitis: 'God gave us this pain so that we could remember every day that we lived.' (It was before the term Fibromyalgia) Being a bipolar patient for the last 10 years I've learned that not all doctors what what the hell they're talking about and I took my own recovery back! There is not a doctor out there what can CURE this ailment! Knowing that it is a family "trait" I have the luxury of support and knowing what might work for me. I also have a great psychiatrist who helped me with bipolar and also with Fibromyalgia. _________________________________________________________ Nina Ramsey 9730 3rd Ave NE # 101 Seattle, WA 98115 (206) 522-5243 _________________________________________________________ Also, nothing beats exercise, no matter how bad your hurt!
