  • 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.

    "This book is a must have guidebook for anyone newly diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue and/or Fibromyalgia., and for support group leaders. You will recognize yourselves as she deals with pain and emotional issues, and rejoice as she has her light-bulb moments.

    The second half of the book deals with strategies and coping methods and how you can chart the things that work for you, and also how to keep track of appointments, medications, priorities, etc. She has even shown us how with the charts she made for herself. Ms. Brady's book will leave all readers with hope and resolve. -- Susan May, FM/CFS Support Group Leader
