Robin Dix is a Patient Specialist and Columnist for Fibromyalgia News Today. She is a wife and mother of three adult children, and began her journey with fibromyalgia many years ago. Since that time, she has used the illness to be an inspiration to others. Although the fatigue and pain often keep her bed-bound, she is creating multiple streams of income from home and is learning how to be a success in her personal and professional life in spite of FM. "I strive to keep a positive attitude," she says of her own life experience. She is also working on writing a book. In her exclusive patient column, Robin covers a wide range of health and lifestyle issues relating to the condition, and seeks to engage other FM patients in understanding their own experiences as well as new ways to cope with FM and live life to the fullest.
