Julie mentioned in a post that a letter to normals could help when other do not understand the fibro.  How do I find this letter?  I looked in the fibro 101 thread and maybe I am foggy - I cannot find it there.

Hi Sue,

I found the "letter to normals" under the fmscommunity.org website.

Hope that helps....

There are some really interesting articles on that site with lots of good info, including that letter.
However, the title "open Letter to Normals" just cracks me up.  I mean, I know some of us aren't "normal," but I wasn't aware that it was caused by the fibro.  smilewinkgrin

Thanks for bringing this up, Sue. I'd never heard of this letter before but just hunted it down and read it myself and it's really well written. I definitely think I'll be sending it along to a few people!

Sorry to make you chase it down! I should have posted a link for you. Thanks AustenFan for pointing Sue in the right direction.

I'm glad I had to look it up. The website is really great and I had never seen it before.

Hey Sue- I am wondering how you did at work today, if your internship dragged you around again- I certainly hope not!

Sera, I only have to go the internship 7 hours per week. So today and yesterday I was on campus doing my regular grad student stuff. I will probably work with her again Tuesday afternoon or something. Hopefully it will be easier. I will probably be going to the locked mental institution to interview conserved patients there. That should not be too strenuous.
