Shell posted this on the Fibro Friends forum. She got this from the fibromyalgia network. This is a good explanation so I thought I would share this with you.

F is for the Finding we always have to do; we've found our keys again, but now where is my shoe?
I is for the Impact on our family and friends; we're so grateful to them for a love that never ends.
B if for Breaks, we must take a lot each day; it's hard for us to work or watch our children play.
R is for the Restless sleep that plagues us every night; we toss, we turn, we hurt, we twitch and never lay just right.
O is for the Occupation the we may have had and lost; or fear we'll never get to try because of fibro fog.
M is for the Memory we all so desperately miss;we didn't mean to miss your party, our memories, it slipped.
Y is for the Yelling the pain makes us want to do; but we can't, we must compose, it's not likely that we're two.
A is for the Apathy that we all know too well; our favorite hobbies don't amuse us, the equipment we should sell.
L is for our Lives, the quality is diminished; we can't do what we once did, so many things unfinished.
G is "Gazillion" pills that we hate to take; they cost a lot, they make us sick our pain doesn't even break.
I is for the Ignorance that people, even doctors, show; our illness is invisible, the symptoms come and go.
A is for the Anger that we no longer feel; we're taking back our lives from an illness that is real!!
