for January 2, 2009
First I want to report on our Christmas party - a good time was had by all. And.... Tracy Jenkins won the Christmas jewelry set donated by Nova Bouknight. Nan Talbot, of Illinois (a friend of mine) won the ME/CFS Awareness Bracelet donated by me. Dr. Lapp played the piano for our Christmas carol sing-a-long. Dr. Lapp is very talented on the piano (in his red Santa hat). It was a lovely evening with lots of goodies to eat, but we wish more of you could have attended. I wish for all of you a year of better health in 2009.

Excerpted from Chapter 10 of Dr. Pellegrino’s very
Fibromyalgia: Up Close and Personal.* Dr. Pellegrino has seen more than
20,000 FM patients in his practice at
Rehab Center, and has been a fibromyalgia patient himself since childhood.
All of us involved with Fibromyalgia, either by treating it or having it, have come to appreciate how complicated this condition is.
Fibromyalgia has different types and subsets.(1) More than one factor may be involved in causing it. Causes may be recognized, but the exact mechanism of how Fibromyalgia develops from this cause is not fully known. Most importantly, there is more than one way to get Fibromyalgia; it is an “end point” condition with multiple ways leading to it.
