florence nightingale had fibromyalgia
Well this all peaked my interest and I looked up fibromyalgia awareness jewelry. Turns out quite a few people sell it. There is an organization called cure4fibromyalgia that sells all kinds of fibromyalgia merchandise. They call themselves fibro fighters. Apparently the color purple has been adopted as the color for fibromyalgia awareness. There are hats, tshirts, jewelry, mouse pads, stickers for your car, etc. They have purple ribbons for you to wear.
This is an interesting site. Among the things listed are "celebrities with fibromyalgia". According to them Florence Nightengale suffered from "fibromyalgia-like symptoms". Shit we are all doomed.
I might have to become a fibromyalgeur with all the fun shirts, hats, jewelry I like the color purple. I hear there are plans for a fibromyalgia telethon. Who could be the host? Maybe the Whiners from saturday night live....see below
