Fibro Friend

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2005. I knew of one other person that had it besides me. It is a difficult and complicated condition that still makes no sense to me. It affects the muscles and causes chronic pain for most who have it. There is no cure,..yet it is not progressive. It mimics many other conditions like R.A.,..Lupus and Multiple Sclerosis.

Then , one day I met Jenna Baker. She is a fellow scrapper,...a great friend,..and a Fibro sufferer,.just like me. We became fast friends and spent endless chats talking about our condition and how it effects us. She has had it much longer than I have and has it much worse than me. She is an inspiration to me in so many ways.
Although it's terrible that she has this horrid condition,..I'm thankful to have her to talk to about it. she understands everything and has helped me more than she will ever know!

This one's for you Jenna! I Love You!
