Melissa Swanson

Patient Leader

I am a full time working married mom. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and 19 of it's evil sidekicks. I continue to research and connect with other Fibromites to help learn as much as I can to help deal with the daily struggles of my syndromes/diseases. I have created a facebook Fibromyalgia page, a support group and a blog. I believe through education, positive affirmation and a great support team I can continue being a Fibro Warrior ~ Living Life. I am a writer for and a trained advocate for the National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association.
