After discovering she has fibromyalgia, or FMS, a disease causing unbearable chronic pain in the body, Annette’s life starts to change. Her first husband leaves her, she loses her job, and she is called several names both by unknown people and by those she trusts.
Having the disease is a constant battle with severe pain, and it doesn’t help that she is feeling worse despite the condition being not progressive. But she has to fight every day and redeem the life she has before.
I Hurt Like Hell, by Annette L. Jackson, is a true account of how a common woman suffered from FMS and eventually got back—it’s a book of inspiration for others with the same condition.
