My name is Amy, and I live with several chronic pain illnesses. I run a blog called The Fibro Frog, and a Facebook Page with the same name. My dream has always been to provide seminars on living with chronic pain/invisible illnesses, from a patient's view. I feel that I became sick, so that I would start educating and advocating for those of us that live every day of our lives, in pain. I'm sure you know how you feel when you have the flu, right? Imagine feeling that way every day. That's how we feel. There are so many misconceptions about these illnesses and the truth needs to get out there so that maybe there will be more funding, for further research. We need a cure, and if not a cure, at least a concrete universal treatment plan. It's hard to break into the public speaking arena. I need to have a track record, to start getting bookings. Therefore, I'm trying to raise the money to be able to rent out a few hotel conference rooms, and to pay for the advertising, and information packets for the seminars I'll hold there, along with travel expenses. That will give me the chance to video the seminar and put clips on YouTube. It's estimated that more then 116 million people in the U.S. suffer from a chronic pain condition. Please, help me to help all of us. As it currently sits, we aren't living our lives. We're just surviving.
