The Fibro Frog is a new blog for us bloggers that have fibromyalgia. Amy is just getting this blog up and running and it only has a few posts, which have been both informative and cute.
Here is a little about Amy straight from the blog: "I'm a wife, and a mother of 4 children that are pretty much all grown now. I also have Fibromyalgia, AC Joint Arthritis in both shoulders, Osteoarthritis in both knees, neck, and back. I'm also blessed to have several Tarlov cysts up and down my spine along with bone spurs on my spine and on my left hip."
Her very first post was about her diagnosis of fybro so make sure you hop over and read it, I learned a lot from it because I have fibro just not as bad as she does. I was diagnosed by my regular Doctor about three years ago and I had the same theory as she did, that it is just something that they diagnose you with when they can't figure out what the problem is. I had the blood work done and then I was sent to a Rheumatologist where he confirmed the diagnosis and put me on meds to help control the pain. Haha!! It helps but it's still painful. I am not looking forward to getting worse let me tell you!
Anyway, back to her new blog, I want to share her last paragraph from that post with everyone:
"I hope I get a lot of followers on this blog that will comment and contribute. Maybe we can build a network of support for each other, and share secrets of what works for us. Granted, no two people with fibro or even arthritis will suffer the same symptoms all the time. Not everything that works for one person will necessarily work for another, but maybe (hopefully) we can all work together to help one another. At the very least, we can spread the word about how real Fibromyalgia is, and bring awareness to this evil thing."
So, make sure you hop on over and become a follower of The Fibro Frog blog!! You can also follow along on Facebook.
