You Can Beat Fibromyalgia Naturally

I've come across an interesting read that I'd like to share with all of you.  The book is free to download until March 31.  Enjoy!


I'm participating in a blog hop and I think it's going to be really fun for all of you and me to discover some writers that we've never known before.  I know a lot of you come here to read about Fibromyalg ia and you may wonder why this Fibro and Fabul ous gal is participating, well , I'm currently working on a memoir that is-- you gues sed it!-- about Fibromyalgia!  So without further ado, here's all the details about the great author that invited me to the hop AND about my current work in progress!   What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way for readers to discover authors new to them.  I hope you'll find new-to-you authors whose works you enjoy.  On this stop on the blog hop, you'll find a bit of information on me and one of my books and links to three other authors you can explore! My gratitude to fellow author Rissa Watkins for inviting me to participate in this event. You can click the following link to learn more about her work.  Website:

Apple and Panko Stuffed Pork Chops

  These babies were a new creation of mine.  These are the uncooked version, and unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the cooked version because they are all gone! Ingredients: 5 Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops  1 and 1/2 cup of Panko Bread Crumbs 2 Ribs of Celery, chopped 1 Large Pink Lady Apple, sliced 1 tsp of Onion Powder 1 tsp of Sea Salt 1/8 tsp of Ground Pepper 1 and 1/2 cups of Chicken Broth Method:   Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, mix the panko, apples, celery, onion powder, sea salt, ground pepper, and chicken broth until well blended and thoroughly moist.  Place a small layer of the mixture into the baking pan and then place one chop over it.  Next place a small layer of the mixture over the top of the chop.  Repeat for the remaining chops.  Place in oven uncovered for 30-40 minutes, or until the pork's juices run clear and the pork is no longer pink. Enjoy! Stay fabulous! Love and friendship, K

It takes a look at how society might devolve if females were commodities: bought, sold, stolen, and traded to keep the dwindling human race going. Frightening concept. I loved it." --A.G.

Fibromyalgia: First Proof Found

This is very interesting and exciting news for sufferers.  We can now label Fibromyalgia a disease, something we Fibromites knew all along.  The only scary thing is that if they can now detect damage in our fibers, how will this disease progress with us?  Will it continue to degenerative in our bodies and spread?  Guess we will still have to wait and see on that one.

Dogs and Fibromyalgia

Proof that any kind of dog can be trained to help the Fibro sufferer.

First Test to Objectively Diagnose Fibromyalgia

Though I'm very excited that there is a way to test Fibromyalgia, I'm not too sure that they have us right just yet.  Researchers at the UIC Department of Pathology seem to think that Type A Fibromites have a hard time handling stress due to an abnormality in our immune production patterns.  They think this might lead to the pain and other issues we have. I'm not so convinced.  Many people that suffer from other illnesses find themselves dealing with exacerbated symptoms while under stressful situations.  This is not uncommon to hear.  And lets not forget that flares can come from other situations.  Changes in temperature, laundry detergent, cleaning products, or even the seasons can cause a flare for me, and those situations have nothing to do with the stress in my life.  Let's also add to the mix what happened before I got sick.  I was able to work all day (12 hour shift) at my job and then come home, cook a meal, and clean the apartment.  That's not strenuo
