My wife is amazing. She was forced out of work due to fibromyalgia. She spent most of a year in bed, dealing with the fallout of missed commitments, eroding friendships, and guilt about not contributing to the household income.
Then she submitted an essay to the National Fibromyalgia Association and won a scholarship to their International Leaders Against Pain conference. Empowered, she founded the Colorado Fibromyalgia Network, a grass-roots support group, which has now been chosen to host an educational event for several hundred people, one of only ten such events nationwide.
She’s found her calling, and she’s loving it.
