My name is Mikal Smith.I am a novelist, poet and literature enthusiast among many other things.

In 2009 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia after experiencing symptoms for about 15 months. Believe it or not, that is considered a quick diagnosis.

My experience with fibromyalgia has taught me many things, not the least of which is that it is a condition shrouded in uncertainty. Though it effects between 2-5% of people there are still millions of people who have no idea what it is, and many people who don't belieive it exists.

I have a continuing goal to create a very thorough collection of articles about life with FM. It's time to bring this condition out of the dark ages!

Some articles about fibromyalgia:
