I'm so glad to hear that! I've had fibro long enough to have heard some real doozies for explanations of this illness! I'll be praying that he helps uncover the key to fibro.
By the way, you don't have to apologize. You did nothing wrong. I probably didn't read it as carefully as I should have.

Thanks for sharing this information with us!! Wow!! I wish there was a seminar going on in my area. Do you mind me asking what part of the country you live in?
I know anxiety has been a long term problem for me and I'm sure it contributed to my FMS. But.... I was dx'd w/ CFS after my last bout w/Lyme (10 yrs ago). Then it was updated or upgraded to FMS earlier this year. I honestly can't remember ever feeling "normal" so I don't know if it was Lyme related or life related.. I think everyone that has FMS wants to know HOW IN GOD'S NAME DID I GET THIS?? Since the medical industry doesn't really know how to treat it or what the cause is, perhaps we'll never know. But I'm praying that in my lifetime they'll find a cause and cure.
I also wanted to welcome Suzanne to our forum!!
How did you find out about the seminar??? I'd like to see one come to my area.. N/E Indiana. I'm wondering who I have to get motivated to bring a program like this to our area.
Thanks again for sharing!!
Hugs and happieness!!
Cool, thanks Sue!!!
What's the name of her book??? I might want to read it. Since we live within reasonable closeness maybe she'd come to our larger city, Ft Wayne, and bring some awareness to the area!! Our little local hospital basically... well... sux. They specialize in removing fish hooks from fishermen's fingers and that's about it. The local joke is.. if you want to die go to THAT hospital, if not, go to one of the hospitals in Ft Wayne! Sad but true.
Hey Sue, I too live in SE Michigan. Which hosptial hosted the seminar. I would love to attend.
I'd say fibro gives me anxiety. I don't have a problem with anxiety originally. But wondering what shoes to wear and if I will be able to walk or not each day and not being able to do what I used to do can cause some anxiety. Pain that the meds don't touch causes anxiety too. Hurting now.
Thanks for sharing the meeting info with us.
Thanks Sue, That's pretty far for me, I looked it up and its about 160 miles. Bummer!!! But I will look up her book on Amazon.
Is there an email address for the seminar or do you have a phone number. My husband and I both would love to attend. I am going to see if I can get the book from Borders. I am really looking forward to this.
you can call Beaumont Hospital - 248-898-5000 and ask them to refer you to their upcoming classes. The first meeting is April 2nd. Hope this helps!!!
