When I first started out, I felt my duty was to share every possible Fibromyalgia (FMS) fact, theory, detail, option, etc. I could possibly find with all of you. Two decades plus later, I have concluded that I was very wrong. The "Fibro World" does not need someone else regurgitating yet again what so many others have already said.
I currently see my role as leading you to information and people you can trust to provide you with the basics of Fibromyalgia (FMS) and more than basics, should you choose to delve deeper. (I do not believe you have to become a "Fibromyalgia Expert" to LIVE your fibroLIFE.)
Next, I see my role as helping you understand the importance of symptom tracking. I believe in the importance of this so much that I have dedicated much time and energy into developing a symptom tracker that is "point-on" for those with FMS, as well as "doable". Why do I want you to track your symptoms? I assure you, I would not stress it were it not necessary. It is the only way you can work with your healthcare professionals knowledgably and it is the quickest way for you to work together in successfully developing the most effective treatment plan for you.
While you are tracking your symptoms, I believe my role is to lead you to people you can trust to educate you about Traditional, Integrative, and Functional Medicine Treatment Options and how to assemble and work with a healthcare team.
I am not going to pretend this does not take time and energy--it does. I will assure you, however, that it is time and energy well-spent. This is truly the path to minimizing fibro--maximizing LIFE.
fibroLIFE© is not a another support group.
It is a LIFE-style approach which places the emphasis on LIFE rather than fibromyalgia.
