To All of Us,

Now that we will no longer have the Fibromyalgia Network hunting out the best info for us, I thought I'd list some of my favorite sources. See if you can get them through your library. Buy the ones that seem to work for you.

Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain A Survival Manual by Devin
Starlanyl and Mary Ellen Copeland. (This is a large workbook style
paperback. There are 2 editions. Either is good.)

Managing Pain Before It Manages You by Margaret A. Caudill,
MD, PhD. (Another large paperback. Full of coping, relaxation,
and self-help tips. This is the one that therapists learn from.)

The Fibromyalgia Help Book by Jenny Fransen, R.N., and I. Jon
Russell, MD, PhD. This is my all time favorite. Dr.Russell was
one of the members who set up the original FM guidelines in 1990.
This book explains everything in terms you can learn or not as you
see fit. It shows how to live better with FM.

The more we know, the better we can cope.
