“Thank you for the Facebook discussion last night on Fibromyalgia. I found it very good. Even though I have had this condition for over 15 years and think I manage it quite well it was great to have a discussion with everyone, learn some new ideas and also hopefully help other people with knowledge gained over that time. It gave me a real boost and made me feel not so alone with the condition as you do tend to think.” – Anonymous
