This is part thirteen of a series where I attempt to articulate the invisible torments that pursue humanity - both physical and emotional.
Fibromyalgia - a most mysterious ailment. Debilitating, exhausting, ever present, and inexplicable. It is a chronic pain that never leaves its victim. It tears through the flesh and controls the mind. Most perplexing of all, is that the sufferer appears to be healthy. They may be quiet, fatigued or a little cranky, but by outward (and inward appearances) there is nothing technically wrong. Try as they might, no one, apart from other fibromyalgia sufferers can possibly understand the invisible control this condition has over mind and body. It is easy to lose your sense of self and believe that you are your pain. It is important to remember that you are more than your pain!
