Plan a day ahead of time.

In order to conserve your energy always pioritize and streamline your tasks.

Each of us must learn to cope in different ways to our changing lifestyles. It takes more time to get less done. We must modify what we usually have taken for granted.

It would be good to share some of the skills and problems that arise. DO you have some ways of coping that you feel may help others? Let us know.
NOTE I have just learned of a site on April 9,l998, that others may wish to check out. It is about Pain Research and they are going to do some on Fibromyalgia when they have enough candidates to begin. I found it interesting to read about.

Welcome    to    Stormy    Jeanne's       Fibro    Page!

Years and years of wondering what in the world is wrong! Why the aches? Why the pain? Why the constant lack of energy? So many whys for so many years. Then you learn it's a thing called Fibromyalgia! Fibro----what? I can't even say it how can I have it?

How many are floating or drifting around in this world today that experience the same symptoms? Thanks to the computer, I find that we are not alone. There are actually many, many people that are finding out that, "yes, there is a name for what ails you." "No, there is no cure at this time." "Yes, the symptoms will probably stay with you." Or, what we hear the most,"I'm sorry, but we just don't know what is wrong."

My last trip out of town to the "special" university hospital that is supposed to find out what's bothering everyone told me,"Madam, you are a very sick person. Something is very wrong with your system. We just don't know what it is. The symptoms are there, but they don't fit a category. Hopefully, you can find someone that can help you." That was my last trip out of the area. It was an Arthritis Clinic Doctor, a Rehab Doctor and a Neurologist that all told me a name:

F I B R O M Y A L G I A.

I sincerely hope that through this site we can communicate and share our saddness and joys through this long journey. Yes, I think that together we, the victims of this illusive disease, can share and build a faith in the future wellness of each and every one.I don't claim to know anything about this disease medically. I know nothing of cures. I have watched as many ask for help-that want to know if anything can be done to just, maybe, make life a little easier. It's my firm belief that any person that is physically ill should be under a doctor's care. Any medical advice should only be given by a doctor who knows you and your health history. Hopefully each and everyone can find a doctor to work with.

Throughout the past ten years I have been with doctors, rehab (stroke), pain clinics (2), numerous physical therapies, water therapy, group therapy (presently in a Fm/CF Group), etc. Along with these experiences I have accumulated a lot of notes and information. It is my desire to share some of the things I have been exposed to with others in the hope that somethings may help encourage and let you know that, "Yes, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel after all."

Come, join with us to try to find that special place of rest and healing hope. You may have newer information or things you would care to include and pass on....please do.
