    What is fibro? I guess i could look it up but i would rather here about it from people understand it better. I read a post that said they have fibro but their not depressed and another that ties them 2 together like depression and fibro is one the same.

    I am quoting from a wonderful book written by Devin Starlanyl and Mary Copeland."Fibromyalgia is derived from the Greek "algia" meaning pain, "myo" indicating muscle,
    and the Latin word "fibro" meaning the connective tissue of tendons and ligaments."

    Depression is one of the SYMPTOMS of fibromyalgia (FM).I hope this helps.

    There is a book called "Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain " A Survival Manual which is written by the 2 authors mentioned above. It can tell you everything you need to know about the illness. Get that book. It is the best ever.[This Message was Edited on 10/28/2005]
