Fall off your bike, get a band aid. Have a headache, take an ibuprofen. Pain is often fleeting…and there’s a cure. But what happens when pain is constant with no quick fix?  Fibromyalgia is talked about a lot more lately and that's thanks to celebrities like Lady Gaga  Morgan Freeman and Sinead O’Connor  sharing their stories. North Falmouth based artist, Terie Michon is also trying to get the word out. She’s developed her own pain relieving routine that’s anything but the norm.
