I am searching for some help with a project a friend and I are doing. We are undertaking the task of writing our own book for fibro. We don't know how long it will take, but it our ultimate goal to actually get it published and spread to help others. There are plenty of books out there about fibro, but most are by doctors who don't quite understand what its like, and we want to do it a bit differently.
The first section of our book is going to be "What is Fibromyalgia, and What Does It Mean To Me?" Now, obviously, we are going to do lots of research to get the technical definitions of fibro, but what we are looking for is what does fibro mean to YOU? If YOU were to write a definition, would what it be?
The second section is going to be a list and description of symptoms of fibro patients. Now sure, we can look up online what doctors say are symptoms, but we want to hear from REAL people what symptoms effect them.
Later on, we are also going to have a personal stories section, where we would have blurbs from people and of course give credit to them if they desire. Please send me a message through my email if you would like to help with that part as well.
But for here, the first two sections that I listed, would anyone be willing to post some things here that would answer those questions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much!
