I am finishing this message at the beginning! Having promised eNews on Friday, before leaving for the fibromyalgia conference, I failed you. I am sorry. I am also sorry I had to miss the conference. I am finishing this in hospital following a fall as well as dislocating my prosthetic hip (two unrelated events!)
I hope that you are following up the links that I give you in eNews! You need to left mouse click, or double click, or even hold Control and click, - depending on how your computer is set up. If all those fail, copy and paste into your web browser’s address bar. What I give you is skeletal! You need to flesh it out from the pages I have linked to to get the benefit. If something looks particularly useful add it as a Favorite/Bookmark it, or even save it to your computer. Then you can find it again when you want it.

N.B. I would like to point out to you all that the information in my eNewsletters does not necessarily infer endorsement by the charity Fibromyalgia Support for Surrey & Sussex. Any advice or recommendation of a medical or legal nature must always be discussed with a qualified professional. The charity cannot be held responsible for omissions and/or errors.
Sites I refer you to are for information only. They might conflict in their opinions, they might not even be medically sound, but I merely offer them for you to peruse and make your own judgements, accept or reject as you will. Only by reading widely can we get an overall picture of fibromyalgia syndrome and how we can deal with its symptoms, learn to cope with them and still have a life.
I also include various awareness and local issues as well as general health considerations.
