A few days ago, a You Tube video was doing the rounds on Facebook. It was not something that I had seen before, never having been a fan of “The Golden Girls.” But, when it popped up on my newsfeed, I certainly became interested and err……..angry. Very angry!!

I am going to add the video into this post and even if you have never seen the clip, I am sure that if you are struggling with Fibromyalgia or any other chronic illness, you will totally be able to relate to Dorothy – I know that I did.
