Fibromyalgia, Chronic Illness and School, Target Should Do Better, Thank you ACA, and a Kinder Gentler World for Spoonies

In this week's episode, I spoke with Lauren who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia since the age of 12. We discussed the difficulty of High School with chronic illness, trouble with college when you have a medical leave and also some interesting ideas of what compliance with ADA means to some schools and at Target. We talked about the importance of the ACA and the ability, especially for chronically ill children to be able to stay on their parent's health plan. We also covered the social side of chronic illness and fibromyalgia as well as some frustrations on the treatment of individuals who have an invisible illness.
