Fibromyaglia is Real

I love these graphics. Sometimes the best way to understand a bunch of statistics and data is visually. I  know I’m a visual learner. The only thing I don’t like about these graphics is that the statistic on how many women have fibromyalgia should be how many people. Men get fibromyalgia too. This is not just a “woman’s disease.”

    I like this as well and I agree with you, it should say “people” and not “women.” A gentleman who I dated in highschool and was great friends with also has this. I know there are so many others.

    hank you so much for educating people on the facts. I too have fibromyalgia and a blog where I have been writing a few things on my journey through the invisible illness folks just do not want to accept as real. Keep up the fight and gentle hugs!
