    Knowledge is Power

    To learn about the disorder that you are living with, and get advise from an author who actually has it, makes it easier to accept the advise and information given. When I read the book, it was like it was written about me. The connection with the author was pricelss, and written in a way that was easily understood. I would highly recommend this 'Fibromyalgia Bible', as I call it. The most helpful was the list of medical team members needed to treat me. Not one doctor can treat all symptoms. You need specialist as well. I took this to my primary care physician, and she didn't hesitate to get me the referrals I needed.
