The Personal Side of Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
PARTING THE FOG is a candid accout with the reality of being a FMS/CFS sufferer. While it is occasionally a story of gloom, it is never a story of doom. As the author herself has been stricken with this illness, respect is shown for the seriousness of FMS/CFS. Yet, humor is mingled with hardship and the pages are sprinkled with hope. Prose and poetry combine to get to the heart of the FMS/CFS experience.
Within these pages you will find:
A "Don't Ask - Do Ask" list for "Normals."
A poem titled "A Sufferer's Prayer" along with many other inspiring, sometimes humorous poems.
A letter to supportive people.
A personal page at the end of each chapter, to enable you to tell YOUR story, if you so choose.
Nothing technical. Just an easy-to-read account of a not-easy-to-live-with illness.
