I got this newsletter from the Mayo Clinic and thought I'd share it. It's about a new DVD they made about how to deal with fibro.

Sounds very interesting.  Do you have an address to order the DVD?

I am currently just starting a book written by Janet A Hulme, P.T.  It is titled "Fibromyalgia  A Handbook for Self Care & Treatment".  She is a physical therapist that has FM and both her grown daughters were diagnosed in their early teens.

This book has been edited and added to by Peggy Schlesinger, M.D. Rheumatologist.  This is the third edition and dated back in 2000.

I have just started reading and so far, I find it very interesting.  She acknowledges that a lot of her information comes from her patients by providing essential information about what works and more importantly what does not. She stresses the point that you need to consider the entire body and not just the part that hurts the worst.  She talks a great deal about a diabetic & what they do each day to regulate their disease.  She keeps stressing the point that a person with FM must carry out daily tests and self care routines to maintain the health of all cells or parts of the body.

As I stated, I am just beginning the book.  It was given to me by the physical therapist that is currently working with me at the athletic club that I am currently going to.  She told me that she has given out at least 15 of these books in the past 2 years.

The author's disclaimer states that the information and procedures contained in this book are based upon the research and the personal and professional experiences of the author.  They are not intended as a substitute for consulting with your physician or other health care provider.

The majority of her patient's information and input comes from females of course.  But, she does state quite often that a lot of these conditions and symptoms are the same in females and males.

I will pass on my thoughts and feelings when I get a little further into the book.  As you all know, when you are trying to digest what you are reading, it can take a long time for it to register.  It is not like reading an interesting novel that keeps your attention most of the time.

Sorry WolfSoul.........maybe I should have started a new thread with this.  Didn't mean to cut you off at the knees like this.

Thanks SoulWolf.........It is kind of hard to get your hands on good information that you can feel comfortable with.

Did you order one?  If so, what has been your take on the information.

No I didn't order one. I might though. I have another one at home that I got for free through work. I've had it for about a year and haven't watched it yet.

tojo, if I do get it, I'll see if I can burn a copy for you. No promises though, because I'm not sure I can.  :LOL:

tojo

That would sure help. I can help you if you want to burn the thing on your PC.
