Men with Fibromyalgia?

Did you know that women aren’t the only ones who suffer from fibromyalgia?  I will be honest, until a few years ago I never thought of men having this condition.  It’s not that I thought men couldn’t have it, but that I didn’t hear of men having it.  In fact until a year ago I only knew 2 men with a fibromyalgia diagnosis.

In the past year, I have become friends with Norman Hanley otherwise known as Mr. Fibro.  He is the founder of MenWithFibromyalgia.com which offers support to other men.  I had the pleasure of interviewing Norman on my podcast Dish’n with The Disabled Diva June 10, 2017.  If you haven’t already, be sure to listen in as Norman shares how fibromyalgia has altered the way he lives, its emotional effects, and how he is helping others.  If you are seeing this post before the episode airs or want to make sure you never miss an episode, be sure to follow the Speaking to the Heart Radio Network on Spreaker to receive a notification when new episodes air.
