My Story on the Blog

These blog posts contain more of my story than what can be found under the About Me and My Story links above. This is the day-to-day stuff, the tips, advice, stories, opinions, and everything else that could come out of living as a fibro babe every day. Enjoy!

Finding that out is your first assignment.
