Living with Chronic Pain~ Fibromyalgia



This gal Dominie, sends out news letters on fibro. It has been such a blessing. When you suffer with pain it can be very lonely, and isolating, because many do not understand.


Fibromyalgia is real. I was diagnosed in 1982 and have maintained an informational and supportive website at http://www.fms-help.com since 1996. I also write a free weekly newsletter covering many topics related to FMS. I am “managed” but not “cured” (www.fms-help.com/what.htm). I have heard from thousands of people with fibromyalgia from all over the world. They have identical symptoms, but differ in lifestyle, culture, gender, climate, diet, age, race, nationality, occupation, education, etc. I believe that fibromyalgia may be something viral adversely affecting the brain and nervous system. A list of occupations of my readers is at http://www.fms-help.com/occupations.htm. You will see that fibromyalgia is an “equal opportunity” illness. For those who are “skeptics,” may I caution you to temper your statements, as your turn may be next.— Dominie Bush

Brandie, I sometimes feel like I wonder how my husband works every day or others just accomplish so much! As I have been reading about curing cancer I have come across many potential cures but there is a book by a man called Gerson Therapy I think. Google it for their webpage. His therapy diet can cure many other diseases and there is a great movie on instant Netflix called Beautiful Truth.
Love you and thanks for all your prayers. Thought I should just let you know. Very interesting.

Living with the chronic pain is like living in the hell. Really I cant forget those days when I suffered a lot with the chronic back pain. Now even though am not completely relieved, am able to cope up with the pain and able to manage it very well with the help of Hypnotherapy Treatment.

I have suffered many years from the chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia and MS symptoms. The pain is constant and all too often, so intense and debilitating I experience profuse vomiting--rendering me completely incapacitated for days on end.A facilitator gave me a tall glass of 9.5 water, within 30 minutes, my symptoms lessened and within 45 minutes the pain and nausea were completely gone! That got my attention!
