May 12 = Fibromyalgia Awareness Day



Today is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.  But I actually started working on this list back in March after a reader wrote me asking for help in living with fibromylagia.  Many of the accounts and websites below are run by readers of Fashionably ill or friends of mine.
