NOT related to FMS!">Abortion is NOT related to FMS!

I detest igno­rant big­ots. And I absolute­ly con­sid­er the fol­low­ing hate speech: So like an HPV diag­no­sis in some­one would almost guar­an­tee that oth­ers would know the person’s poten­tial morals or lack there of, and HIV almost always denotes a gay man, a diag­no­sis of fibromyal­gia could poten­tial­ly indi­cate a woman who has abort­ed a […]

Fibromyalgia or Depression?

There are many peo­ple, espe­cial­ly doc­tors, who claim that fibromyal­gia is just a symp­tom of depres­sion. I’ve had both, and I know the dif­fer­ence quite well. They are very, very dif­fer­ent.
