Researching fibromyalgia this quarter was an eye-opening experience. I had initially thought there was only one stigma linked to fibromyalgia patients. I was shocked to learn there are several. Also, I was under the assumption a diagnostic test confirming fibromyalgia had been discovered recently. However, I never found any evidence of this in any search engine or database. The skills I learned from this research and creating this research guide will follow me throughout my academic career. No longer will I be satisfied using typical search engines when conducting research. Thanks to this project, I am also more aware of confirmation bias, finding scholarly sources, better search strategies, copyright, and fair use. Overall, I am a more confident researcher due to what I learned while researching my topic creating this guide.
