Feel free to download or print these documents for reading off-line.They are yours to share with family, friends, employers, co-workers, physicians, other people with FM, and anyone else you can think of who might benefit from the information they contain. They're copyrighted, though, which means that no one can sell them. You are welcome to make copies for your support group, but if you want to publish them in a newsletter or magazine, please ask me first.
  • Fibromyalgia 101: An introductory article I wrote for Self Help and Psychology Magazine, where I served as a contributing editor.

  •  
  • Fibromyalgia in Children (an excerpt from Fibromyalgia: A Comprehensive Approach)

  •  
  • Tender points: In making a diagnosis of FM, doctors look for exquisitely painful spots at specific points of the body.

  •  
  • A regimen for managing fibromyalgia: Each person with FM is unique, so one person's solution is not necessarily the answer for everyone. I describe the regimen that keeps me feeling well to give you ideas, not as a prescription.

  •  
  • What I do for sleep: Like everything else, this works for many people but not for all. Included are journal references, sources, and estimated prices.

  •  
  • Dental problems? Here's something that may help.

  •  
  • FM and committed relationships: Fibromyalgia can cause some vexing problems in our most important relationships. Here are some thoughts. (another excerpt from Fibromyalgia: A Comprehensive Approach)

  •  
  • Links to other sites: There are many excellent web sites devoted to fibromyalgia.  No doubt I'll  offend some people by not including theirs, but I find that too much information is just as bad as too little. If you follow these links, I'm sure you won't miss a single site.
