Be careful about what you read and buy into regarding fibromyalgia. There are many sides to the mistruths that circulate regarding fibro and co-conditions.
The first thing we must be mindful of is not getting into the "misery loves company" mindset and feeding that mindset. There are fibro pages that do this every day, and if you follow them, that is feeding the mindset. These are the "all or nothing" type of messages telling you that you will never be better than you are today, and in fact, it will only get worse, so hold onto your seat, you are in for a miserable ride. AND you were dealt a horrible hand in life, so deal with it!!
Another side to this coin is the various multi level marketers who prey on people with fibromyalgia for profit, understanding nothing about how to treat and approach fibro.
What about doctors who give a loose diagnosis only to "cure" that which wasn't really there. Yes, that is out there too. And this of course leads to people who were misdiagnosed telling you how YOU too can be cured of fibro.
Somewhere in the middle of all of this insanity is this wonderful "grey area", it's called "Living Smarter With Fibromyalgia" A place where we tell it like it is, where we work hard to create the most accurate depiction of fibromyalgia, AND the very best approach to living with fibromyalgia. I know this as a practitioner and fellow fibro person living with fibro for almost four decades now; I practice what I preach. And you know what? Practicing what we preach and using discipline and determination when we live with any chronic illness, that is one of the keys to opening a life never imagined. How could you imagine it? You've likely been living with it and approaching it a certain way for so long now that there seems like no better way.
So there again is this magnificent "grey area" we call "living smarter" No need to make fun of it OR belittle it in some way (that just plays into the misery loves company mindset again). If you have multiple conditions, like myself, not just fibro, but also myalgic encephalomyelitis and chronic debilitating fatigue, arthritis and any auto immune illness along for the ride, then everything we ascribe to here in the website will be of even greater value for you, in every way.
Sometimes, people want to debate, but what is there to debate? This is not about some "pink cloud" of temporary wellness or placebo effect that makes you feel hopeful for a moment. This is REAL life. We are talking about a better quality of life here, not a false cure.
I ask you: What if your fibromyalgia pain and symptoms could be more like "background noise" instead of "in your face" demanding your attention 24/7? It can be done, but we must step away from the insanity. Fibro-Girl
