I was just officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia three days ago, although I believe I've had it for quite a while. My rheumatologist told me that there are no medications that help fibromyalgia. He told me that I have to take control of fibromyalgia or it will take control of me. I was told to start cognitive behavior therapy to help with dealing with my pain. He told me that most people with this condition have had an abusive childhood (but not all people) which would explain why I have this chronic illness now! I'm curious to know if anybody has tried this kind of therapy and it has helped? How many of you have had an abusive past (if you're willing to share)? Thank you in advance :-)
