There are many sufferers of Fibro, Chronic Fatigue, Epstein Barr and while progress has been made there is still a lot of ignorance and misunderstanding about it, even by the best intentioned.
I am one of the fortunate. I can be laid low in pain and suffering and know it will pass. For many the passing never occurs and is constant. If you know someone who suffers learn as much as you can by it. Understanding is the best support.
This me six years ago. It still happens a couple of times a year but many are worse.
via Laid Low By Fibro Major Flare Up #1 2012
Apologies all. I had some rather witty things to say today regarding cheek bones but have encountered major flare up from old friend who I conquered years ago but drops in to let me know I am still vulnerable now and then. There are measures but like any super hero – must retreat to Bat Cave, Ice Palace etc etc to recharge. Energy very low pain high ..off to rest 100%. My doc reminds me that for as bad as a flare up can be for me I do recover while somewith Fibro live like this always.
Please drop in and see my friend Joss Burnel at crowingcrone.wordpress.com. and link upto her. B.E.W.E.L.L. site. Joss is our resident expert on Fibro and just published a great book on the subject.
Like the Phoenix I shall rise again…..confirmed size effect..drama!
My friend has created a wonderful book. How do I know it is wonderful? Why because I assisted in my own little way so I have had a preview of what is to come. Joss doesn’t have a ‘press this’ button so I have endevoured to copy and paste it her announcement of the coming work. Some of us talk about doing….Joss does it!

Now for the attempted copy..
..I can hardly stand it! The final editing of my book is done. The cover is ready and I’m just bursting with pride and excitement. All that’s left is the hours of work to upload it to the self publishing software. They make it sound so easy but it is time consuming for sure. But that’s okay.
A huge thank you to Chris King over at Bridges Burning for her wondrous editing work. Chris was oh so patient, oh so gracious, and oh so paid attention to detail. I am thrilled with the end product.
Also must thank my friend, photographer John T. Fowler for allowing me to use his image on the cover. Isn’t it just beautiful?
And last, but definitely not least, thank you to my BFF Christine for reading the manuscript all in one go – she who hates to read at the computer! Christine, your support and love, as you know, mean the world to me.
So, there it is folks. I can’t wait to hold the first real copy in my hands.
