Support the North Carolina Triangle Fibro Friends. Hundreds of thousands of people suffer from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain. You never know how severe this disease is until you or someone you know is affected.
This is a REAL disease and there is NO CURE for Fibromyalgia. There is very little Awareness regarding the disease, that tortures our daily lives. Fibromyalgia effects most people with the ability to work, walk for long distance and sit for long periods of time because of the pain. But also the side effects to the disease such as; Insomnia, Depression, Anxiety, IBS, the inability to process and think like you were prior to the diagnoses with so many more side effects.
Imagine how this would affect your career, your relationships with your significant other, friends and family if you were diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. No one is immune, although mostly women have Fibro, however there has been reports of men of also having Fibro. Fibromyalgia is no longer a disease that affect the age of 50+, more and more teenagers are diagnosed with Fibro. Can you imagine your daughter or son have this debilitating disease?
Many of us with Fibromyalgia will not be able to physically walk even a 1k but we can bring our wheelchairs, mobility chairs, walkers and canes. We are asking for our friends to tell their friends, and our family to tell others, businesses to tell their employees, elected officials, healthcare providers, social media, anyone and everyone, to register as well to raise awareness and fund research for Fibromyalgia. The more people than can come out to support us the more chance we have to getting the attention that this disease deserves.
