It is estimated that 4-8 million people in the United States suffer
with Fibromyalgia. Another one million also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Some statistics state that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
may directly affect 5% of the world’s population.
I am one of the individuals in this growing epidemic. In 1997, after a
chaotic year of intense medical and psychological testing, I was diagnosed
with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I spent much
of the last ten years in deep denial feeling alone, confused, frustrated,
and angry. It has taken me a great deal of soul searching, but I believe
that today I am a better, more centered person because of my experiences.
I’ve never been someone who dictates advice, so my book provides worksheets you can develop
to tailor your personal responses to symptoms and crises. It is the good, the bad, and the ugly
of my personal journey that I share with you, my fellow Fibromites. My hope is simple, that you
will find solace and renewed hope in my words.
