Raise awareness wherever you can
Though fibromyalgia is common among Americans, there is a severe lack of awareness among those who don't have it. Remember Lady Gaga? Once she cancelled her tour, she received a large amount of criticism, even when she showed that she was experiencing too much pain to perform properly. So, it's critical to educate other people to make sure that they understand what fibromyalgia is and why this disease is so debilitating.
There are a few ways to raise awareness. You can join organizations that raise a significant amount of funds for research, or even just educate your friends and family members on what the disease is and how it affects you. Even the littlest step can make the biggest stride.
