  1. What a great idea to remind all of us what's coming up. May is always a huge month. It's also World Ankylosing Spondylitis Awareness Day on May 8th!

    1. Thanks so much Carrie for the reminder. I will add it now especially as some people with fibro also get Ankylosing Spondylitis and it also causes pain as one of it's main symptoms.
