Hi, I am going to be writing a pdf book to help people with fibromyalgia and I want your input. Please keep in mind this is a first draft and grammatical errors and organization help would be appreciated. I am not a writer, just someone trying to help thanks.
If anyone has input they can give on what else has helped them so far that would be appreciated. This is how the book will begin.
The Fybromyalgia Fault by Franky Ferdinand
Hello, I am glad you made the decision to purchase this PDF. For every person that purchases this book, follows the guidelines and educates themselves on what is in this book, I will know I have helped one more individual turn their life around and fix this life sucking “sickness” called by fibromyalgia.
I would first like to write an important message to the individuals that took another leap to help find a cure but are still in a state of helplessness. If you have tried many medicines, remedies, or promised chiropractic cures, let me tell you that I understand the money and time you have invested, and I really feel your pain when you realize that these promised solutions were just another way for someone to make a profit off your misery.
I understand this because I saw my mother go through the same exact thing many times over, until I got sick and tired of her being taken advantage of. She was nearly convinced that her days of figuring out a solution were over. That was until I took the initiative of observing my mothers day-to-day activities and seeing what were the fundamental differences between her and a healthy individual.
Over the past 6 months I have documented my observations, and will be sharing them with you. I will also be showing you what changes she made to fix her problem, and how I came up with the solutions to her problems.
A note I must make is that I am not a professional writer, nor a doctor. I will not try and persuade you to do the things I know will help you. If you are not one of the individuals who is willing to take initiative in having faith and pushing themselves beyond their mental state of helplessness, please stop reading here and return the book.
I am writing this book because I saw the pains my mother went through with Fybromyalgia, and saw how it not only affected her, but the whole family. My father was depressed that his wife’s body was older than a 68 year old woman’s. My sister, a woman who is high in spirit, would constantly feel guilty seeing her mother lay there on the couch by the front door, as she went in and out of the house. And me, I couldn’t have a normal relationship with my mother in her state of mind, because she was always in a bad mood, which kept me from enjoying spending time at home. fibromyalgia is more than a sickness to the person who has it, but it also hurts the people around you. I am sure you know already know that consciously or on a deeper level, because you tried to suppress the fact that you KNOW it affects the people you love most.
Before I begin I would also like to mention that at first my mother, Cindy, was completely against everything I had told her. She said that she has tried everything, and that doctors don’t have a cure for fibromyalgia yet. She kept saying that fibromyalgia is a real sickness and that she has already tried everything to fix her problems. I literally had to make a bet with her to get her to be open minded about what I had learned about fibromyalgia just to get her to listen and try to get better one more time. In the end I won the bet, but most importantly I bought my mother a new life. The fact of the matter is fibromyalgia keeps you from being open minded. You are always in a bad mood and pessimistic, and that keeps you away from the optimism and patience needed to change. There has to be a real motivating driver (RMD). Without a RMD, you will not change your habits, and you will not fix your life. Whether your RMD is your family, friends, or you pushing yourself in hope that there is a solution, you need to have a REAL understanding of how important it is to change and how it will drastically change your life.
One thing I noticed about fibromyalgia is that the people who have had it for such a long time are reluctant to fix it because they had it for so long. Fixing it might mean admitting they wasted 20 years of their life in misery even though there was an alternative solution. Please, DO NOT think like this. Better late than never. Snap out of it, PLEASE!
1- Is Fibromyalgia a Myth?
For the sake of understanding this “condition” a little better, lets break down what fibromyalgia is. You have fibromyalgia if you have an X number of a certain group of symptoms. Symptoms, which ANYONE can have for a VARIETY of reasons and these symptoms are not all measurable, like sensitivity to pain. If you looked up all the symptoms for example on [this website symptoms page (cant include the html in the post)] you will see literally over 20 different symptoms. Are you kidding me!?! As if one medication or a chiropractor visit will fix that?
You have widespread pain? If your postures off, that will cause it.
You have morning stiffness? Then you are not sleeping in the right position, causing your body lack of correct sleep, pain, and a tiring day. Not all of us where taught how to sleep correctly as kids. Some people think it is something we all do naturally, well no. Do you tend to sleep on your side? Maybe your stomach? Do you find it hard to sleep on your back?
When you don’t sleep well and your immune system is low and its fall season, when your allergies kick in, or you get sick, yes cold symptoms will show.
Anxiety? Have you ever noticed your posture when you’re anxious? How about your breathing? Sit up straight, use your legs to keep you straight up, not your back or upper neck, and see how your anxiety drops a little bit. You can test that right now.
You have anxiety? Did you know that causes memory loss? How can your brain process information, remember efficiently or even enjoy life when you’re constantly in what I like to call survival mode? Anxiety is your body’s way or warning you that something is wrong.
Sit up straight again, and take two deep breaths, that means breathe in to the point where you have to stick out your stomach to get in more lung space. Just by doing that your anxiety levels drop. Don’t you think if you worked out the right muscles to permanently keep your posture in that position, that it would really improve your life? You have no idea how dramatic that is, and how many other things it will alleviate which I will show you in further detail in another chapter.
The point I am trying to make is, don’t let group studies, a doctor, television ads and so on categorize you as a fibromyalgia patient. These are symptoms that can from many different aspects of your life and all come from a few core problems that people have. Don’t let media and other people take advantage of you by making you believe your sick and then using your helplessness as a way to market you products that fix your sickness, when you know they never do!
