FMSSAS eNews 11.07.23

Hello to you all on this bright sunny morning
St Swithun has been true to form with a variety of wet and sunny weather this week!  We will be celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary this week and attending a friend’s funeral.  Life can be sweet and cruel at the same time.  Fibro can be a bit like that.  I have made many friends and received many blessings whilst working for the relief and benefit of fibro sufferers.  It is apparently more PC to say people who have fibro than refer to them as sufferers.  Nevertheless we do suffer to a greater or lesser degree.  Here’s hoping for the lesser!!
29.  Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back.

Coping with Pain: Five Ways to Improve Your “Self-Efficacy”
Chronic pain often gets in the way of life. Pain can cancel, interrupt, delay, interfere with, and diminish living.  The worst part is that it can make you afraid to try again tomorrow. It can challenge  your beliefs in your ability to do what you want to do in many, or all, areas of life: your work, family life, friendship, or personal goals.
Central nervous system research on fibromyalgia:
Most of the research findings in fibromyalgia point to a malfunctioning of the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and spinal cord. Yet, there appear to be a variety of abnormalities occurring in the peripheral soft tissues (muscles and connective tissue) and the peripheral nervous system that communicates with the CNS. This dysfunctional interplay between the CNS and peripheral systems is believed by most investigators to be the source of the many body-wide symptoms. In a way, fibromyalgia could be considered a disease of the CNS.
In exclusive interviews with Pro Health’s editor, respected physicians discussed their approaches to treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia with both traditional and alternative methods, including expert advice from their standard protocols and other recommendations for important issues patients deal with including pain, fatigue, sleep, depression, brain fog, diet, exercise, and nutritional supplementation.
