BACONTON - A South Georgia girl living with a rare muscle disease wants others to know her story. 

Nicole Frazier has written a book titled "My Life and all my Trials and tribulations with Polymyositis." The 20-year-old was diagnosed with the disease 5 years ago. It makes muscles stiff in about one in every one hundred thousand people.

"Felt like if another teen get it, they wouldn't be able to deal with it,"Frazier said. "I feel they should know it does exist, and if they have symptoms they can go and get it checked."

Frazier takes three medications and exercises daily to keep her muscles working. She has offers from six different publishers, but says she's still looking for the perfect fit.
