Adrienne Dellwo

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2006 and left my TV news job in 2007. As a journalist and obsessive researcher, I set out to learn everything I could about my illness and was fortunate enough to find a job that allowed me to share what I'd learned as well as keep learning more. I started working for About.com Health (now Verywell.com) as the Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Expert just a few months after leaving TV and have been there ever since. Dispelling myths and providing accurate, reliable information are my passions. Knowledge truly is power, especially when so much misinformation is out there. No day is better than the one in which I help someone live better.
