    I went to my first Rheum this week to get a second opinion on the FMS dx. He agreed with the dx and validated what I had already been told.

    He said a wonderful thing to me and I thought I'd pass it on to you.

    He looked at me kindly and said, "It's not your fault, it isn't YOU, it's the body you're in".

    I almost cried. For so many years I've blamed myself for my inadequacies. It was like, permission to forgive myself.

    That is SOOOO amazing! I wish someone would have said that to me. I am glad he was able to do that for you.

    Hugs,
