i have just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia after spending the past twelve years looking for a diagnosis. i am a 36 year old female who is married and has three kids. i have had every test there is at least three times each and have been told by countless doctors that it was all in my head which often times lead to great bouts of depression. i find it is even hard to get family members to believe me or to understand just how devastating this illness is to me. everyday i find it difficult just to get through the little things and make it through the day. i have every symptom that was ever listed for this illness at one point or another, but it is the chronic pain and fatigue that i find so debilitating. i am hoping someone out there writes back who understands how hard it is just to get up in the morning.
