look up any word, like bae:
A life-sucking, soul-killing disease. You feel sick enough to cancel dinner with your friends, but not sick enough to miss work. Symptoms are similar to the flu: fatigue, body aches, fevers (they come and go) and major brain fog. The symptoms can flair up without warning, which makes planning ahead impossible. No known cures. Pain medication can help, so can yoga, swimming and meditation.

There are several theories as to fibromyalgia's cause, including pollution, aspertame, sick buildings and more. There are several snake-oil "cures" out there; it pays to be cautious.
Last year I was going to the gym five days a week, working all day, attending graduate school at night and taking care of my husband and house. Today I count myself blessed if I can make it through work without a pain pill--all because of fibromyalgia, a disease most people don't believe exists (such as in the prior entry here).

Fibromyalgia is a secret code amongst health care workers meaning "you're a worthless sack of shit, please go away."
You have Fibromyalgia. You're a worhless sack of shit. Please go away.

A real disease that way too few people believe exist, especially by the drunk dicks who have nothing better to do than belittle people through this site. I'm 19, I was diagnosed at 17. Every single day I struggle with depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, extreme fatigue, 'fibro fog' and so many other symptoms. I used to be a straight A student and planned to go into neuroscience. Now, my goal more days than not is to be able to actually get up on time for my classes. My grades are now C's when I'm working 10x as hard. This isn't some excuse so that people can just be lazy and do nothing all day, it's real, it's painful, and each day with it is a struggle. So unless you know what it's like to wish you were dead more days than not, don't say that it's just all in my head. Remember karma's a fucking bitch.
Lily: Hey, want to do this thing that you absolutely love?
Sam: I would love to, but I can't even think straight right now because of my Fibromyalgia. Fuck my life.

Literally: "muscle pain" A diagnosis made in the absence of pathology, i.e. the antithesis of disease. Normally - but not always - presents in older, obese women who are unsuccessful at some aspect of their life - sexual, financial, career. It is a real phenomenon - but it is the somatic expression of depression, not a physical disease. Commonly treated, unfortunatley, by narcotics. Counseling and therapy would be better.
How come your mom's on disability?

She has fibromyalgia, so her best friend is morphine.
