With regard to the letter to the editor from John K. Coyle, I would like to know if he has an M.D. behind his name?
It is very sexist to make a comment about women getting old and complaining of aches and pains because of fibromyalgia.
I have fibromyalgia and have had it for a year now. I have a full-time job as a caregiver.
It is difficult to get through each day when every part of your body hurts. I have developed this illness because of trauma to my body due to many surgeries, auto-immunity and possibly inherited from a donor piece put in my knee from an ACL tear.
Until you have lived with this debilitating illness, then you shouldn't judge others.
It is depressing and causes anxiety because of the frustration of not being able to do what you want without the pain that will not go away no matter what prescription you take to control it.
All I have to say is you had better hope you don't get this illness, because men are not exempt from it.
