May 12th has been officially designated National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. Hearing people say, "But you look so good," underscores the importance of speaking up about chronic pain illnesses.
Numerous events occur throughout the month of May to increase awareness. Events encourage people to Contribute, Advocate, participate in Research, and Educate others about fibromyalgia.
People with FM and their loved ones host community events - picnics, dinners, exhibit tables, walks, Zumbathons, and other creative ways - to help other people know about this invisible illness.
The Metro Fibromyalgia and CFS Support Group hosts an awareness luncheon we invite you to attend.
