chronis illness and moving on:

I have many patients with chronic disease.  Fibromyalgia is one of them. I have been a national advocate for the disease Fibromyalgia.  I have written for their magazine, and I have done pro-bono and paid therapy over the internet with people in the United States who have no means to get to a psychologist.  This diseases is a serious problem which affects every day life.  It is more prominent in women.  The disease causes pain in muscles, tendons, and liagments all over the body.  Unlike most beliefs, it is easily diagnosed with a good doctor.  It takes no tests, but the proper touching of many tender spots in the body.

This disease can also cause other problems, like Renauyds, severe fatigue, sleep deprivation, pain, depression and lethargy. 

People who suffer with this disease and others need a good doctor, exercise, stretching, correct eating, a nap, if necessary, and proper sleep habits, like same time bedtime.  I will write more on this as time goes on, as I am an expert in this disease. 

Many chronic illnesses have similar and complicated issues, like Lupus, MS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and many other rheumatological diseases.  If needing a good doctor, in Los Angeles, go to the USC web site, and look under Rheumatological doctors.    More later……Diane
