I have mentioned before that I suffer from Fibromyalgia.  It's a condition described as widespread chronic pain and tenderness, other symptoms are chronic fatigue, depression and flu like symptoms.  I was shocked the other evening when I sat and watched the first commercial I had ever seen concerning fibromyalgia.  The commercial, in my opinion, is farely accurate in it's depiction of the "syndrome".  They tell you there is hope, they tell you to call an 800 number or go to the website www.FIBROHOPE.org.  I'm sure all of the sudden publicity about this is because the FDA just approved the drug Lyrica for treatment of fibromyalgia.  I don't care if the pharmacutical company is trumpeting their victory or trying to monopolize on the fact that they have the only drug "approved for treatment", I just care that finally, finally the public is being educated on this terrible ailment....Bunny
