Today we have with us Janet Black, author of Fibromyalgia for Families and Friends.
Fibromylagia is a fairly recently recognized disease that isn’t well understood by the medical community and can be difficult to diagnose. One of the big problems that people with fibromyalgia face is explaining it to others and having those people understand them. The lack of understanding often results in emotional and verbal abuse or loss of the relationship. People with fibromyalgia are accused of being lazy, of faking their illness and of not having the pain and other symptoms that they suffer. Janet’s book concisely and clearly explains the disease so that people who suffer from it can more easily make others understand it.
