@Audrey has pulled together a group of us RT Community Members and Streamers to do this really cool stream to help spread awareness about Fibromyalgia and help raise some money for a charity. Haven't heard of it? I didn't either until Audrey was diagnosed with it and told me about it.

Here is some info for you.

Very common

More than 3 million US cases per year

Can't be cured, but treatment may help

Requires a medical diagnosis

Lab tests or imaging rarely required

Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong

Fibromyalgia is often accompanied by fatigue and altered sleep, memory, and mood.

Widespread muscle pain and tenderness are the most common symptoms.

Medications, talk therapy, and stress reduction may help control symptoms.

Want to help out? Simply spreading the word about the event helps greatly. We'll be doing some fun stretch goals too! I've undertaken the challenge to apply some sick winged purple eyeliner if we a certain point. Beards and eyeliner, come on, you know you want to see that! ;)


All streams will be hosted on twitch.tv/gingerninjaaud ! So tune in on Sat May 7th at 9 AM CT and let's have some fun for a good cause!
