I was diagnosed a few months ago with fibromyalgia. I have to admit i didn't take it seriously hence i have other issues as well. Recently, the pain and fatigue has become overwhelming. It seems that my friends do not understand since i am 26. I have lost strong bonds with them as well since I would rather sleep than go out to the bars. I work full time and go to college full time so i try to manage a normal life but i suffer tremendously from it. I feel like i am being a whimp and even sometimes that its all in my head. I do not know anyone going through this and curious if anyone feels the same way i do. I have just started Lyrica. I am wondering if I am in denial of this since no one understands.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
