Get well soon … or, be eternally damned!

Great car­toon from Ragged Edge. I want to get that notepad print­ed up! The mag­a­zine also has an excel­lent blog and some very good arti­cles. I just fin­ished read­ing their spot­light on invis­i­ble dis­abil­i­ties, which linked to the car­toon. There’s plen­ty of excel­lent read­ing mate­r­i­al on their site.

I’ll record episode 3 as soon as my sound tech (aka Sam, my part­ner) is avail­able. Right now, though, I’m in the mood to plump up my blogroll.

The First Year : Fibromyal­gia — A Patient-Expert Guide for the New­ly Diag­nosed by Clau­dia Craig Marek is exact­ly what […]

Comments — yes, please!

Juliann, of the It Won’t Kill You and Sick and Tired pod­casts, kind­ly let me know that my theme is miss­ing some­thing real­ly impor­tant: the link so you can reg­is­ter to com­ment. I’ve fixed that major over­sight now, and absolute­ly DO want your com­ments! Reg­is­tra­tion just takes a few min­utes, and is only required to […]

Online Resources — Fibrom-L

I’ll col­lect the links here, so you can always go back to find them all togeth­er, […]

There are two oth­er pod­casts that I know of for “fibromites,” as one group calls peo­ple with fibromyal­gia. Bet­sy Singh-Anand is a nurse, and her med­ical back­ground is reflect­ed in her pod­cast Fibromyal­gia Week­ly.
