I'm in the process of getting info from the web on fibro and am getting the physical therapy records next Tues. The pain and muscle twitches are very bad right now. I hope I don't hit anyone on the highway on my way to the doctor's this afternoon.
Most people here are upset also. They are helping put together my appeal.
gentle hugs and smiles to you, kcmo rose
