In 2011, I was struck with extreme pain. After a year or more of visiting doctors and many tests, I was finally able to learn to manage my pain. I wrote a series of posts about my journey with chronic pain on my family blog in 2015.
Now I have decided to update those posts and maybe add more information. May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, plus, there are many other pain awareness days in May, so we will kick this off and get the ball rolling.
Finally, since my health slows me down at times, I am uncertain how often I will add to this page. But I will do my best to at least add a post every Friday.
My Journey with Chronic Pain.
