The cost of living with fibromyalgia

The diagnosis of fibromyalgia should come with a cost of living warning label! Seriously! This chronic illness has cost more than financial loss.

No Mention of The Cost of Living with Fibromyalgia

The first thing I did when I returned home after receiving my diagnosis of fibromyalgia was to go online to try and learn as much as possible about this funny-sounding disease.

To my disappointment, there wasn’t much information to be found in 2003.

Everything I found described the symptoms just fine, but nothing provided hope for relief. Nor did anything mention how expensive living with this illness would be.

That is why I wrote this article. Scroll down to see what you should prepare for.
