"Fibromyalgia is not a 'clean' disease like diabetes, precisely classified and precisely treated. My own experience has taught me that fibromyalgia is an illness much like other chronic conditions that must be considered from biological, psychological, social, and spiritual perspectives. There has been a great lack of public information on this common debilitating condition, but this book should go a long way toward educating people. Theresa Foy DiGeronimo gives us a sensitive and comprehensive book that will be of tremendous value to people with fibromyalgia."
—From the Foreword by Joseph E. Scherger, M.D., M.P.H.

    This book is outstanding -it's informative without being over your head. It covers all aspects -symptoms, medicines and treatments, both natural & medical, exercise & your relationships that may be affected by your illness. Most importantly, it cover the entire subject of fibromyalgia in a positive way. It encourages maintaining a good attitude and not getting wrapped up in ourselves and the issues we deal with fighting with this frustrating disease. A+
