I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia on January 23, 2011 by Dr. Pellegrino in New Philadelphia, Ohio. My doctor told me to get multiple therapies such as Physical, Mental, and Massomassage. Physical therapy, my mom's insurance covered, but Massomassage they didn't. My school's Principal doesn't seem to like to own up to the fact that there is such thing as Fibro. He forces me into running as hard as I can in Phys. Ed when I'm not feeling well. He treats my absences as unexcused when caused by leg and back pain. I'm bullied regularly and my teachers do nothing about it because it is about Fibro. I know that I've felt invisible for the past few weeks because my mother and father don't seem to pay any attention to my pain. They just tell me to take Ibuprofen and I'll be fine. My mother had taken me to my therapies until her insurances stopped paying for my braces last month. I've felt very achy without those therapies. I had been fighting a run-around since I was about 6 years of age, trying to find the right doctor. I am 15 years of age now. A friend's mother, who also has Fibro, had pointed my mother and I in the right direction to Dr. Mark Pellegrino. When we finally had the diagnosis and it was over for getting the run-around, I burst into happy tears and hugged the poor guy. The best thing about this Dr. is he has it as well and he understands.
