There’s a lot of frustration behind the name of this blog. I am indeed fed up. I’m fed up with being tired. Fed up with hurting all the time. Fed up with not feeling like myself anymore. Fed up with doctors and others who have no clue what it’s like to live in chronic pain every day. Fed up with all the false claims that say to take this pill or do this diet, and I’ll be cured of fibro.
I can’t change other people’s perceptions, and I don’t have enough money to try out every product or procedure that claims it will restore my health, but I can use the skills I’ve honed over the past two decades as a researcher and journalist to help myself (and you) live a better life with fibro and ME/CFS.
So, that’s why I started this website. There is no cure for fibro and ME/CFS, but there are steps that I can take to help reduce my symptoms. What are those steps?
We’re going to find out together.
