We have no identity!

The one thing we do not have, that all of the other syndromes, illness, etc have is a spokes person... why is it, no one of "recognition" status has come out with diagnosis of FM, that is why it is sooo hard to be recognized as legit.. in our country, if a 'star' doesn't say "yea, it's real" it's not.....sad state of affairs...

Re: We have no identity!

I would say we do have an identity, but it is not good. We are all grouped together with term "unfixable pain in the rear" for doctors, sort of like hemorrhoids! Our spokesperson probably has dementia so he/she does not know they have a problem. (TT)
