Je n’arrive pas à concevoir que des millions de personnes à travers le monde venant d’horizons, de cultures et de croyances différentes, souffrent des mêmes symptomes, du même « mal de vivre » et que l’on continue à être vus comme des malades imaginaires auquel il ne manque qu’un peu de volonté et d’exercice physique.
As long as I remember, I have been depressed. Or maybe it is my depression telling me so. I used to think that it would eventually go away but now I definitely don’t think so.

It is no secret that my secret is that I have Fibromyalgia. I am living with an invisible, chronic illness that is beating me up while pretending otherwise.

When I look into my side table drawer, I see everything but a twenty-six years old’s side table. Two books that I will eventually finish up reading, a medium-sized case with drugs for practically everything that I am proud to not use as often as it may suggest; a spring water spray, a pen, the last enlightening invention I recently acquired during the international fair of Paris (a TENS* device created by..

I should probably take my pills. I need to take whatever is going to help me not hate the world around me. It’s been few weeks after my doctor prescribed me some medication depression and I still haven’t open the bottle yet.
