Book Review of Loving Those With Fibro

Loving Those With Fibro: Caring for those with the invisible disease by Michael Holien My rating: 5 of 5 stars I really enjoyed this uplifting read. The author really took the time to start understanding what people with Fibromyalgia go through. It's a must read book for everyone who is newly diagnosed and everyone who is a caregiver.

Please Pardon the Dust

It has come to a point with this blog that a makeover for the website is needed. Fibro and Fabulous has enough posts where I can start to section off pages in dedication of certain topics so it's easier on all of you visitors while you are here perusing. This process is usually only a small undertaking for large corporations, but it will be a little tougher, and a lot longer of a process for little old me because I'll be up against my writing schedule, family schedule, and of course, my body's schedule. BUT I'm up for the challenge! My future plans include a separate page for all of my recipes, a tips for coping/daily management of Fibro symptoms page, my day-to-day thoughts in the form of blog entries, as well as, separate pages about my up and coming and published books. I'm also toying with a page geared towards caretakers and partners. This will be a large undertaking and I want to thank you in advance for your patience, so please, pardon the virtual dust

Petition to Thank Our Readers

Most people like to blame "the big guys" today because a lot of them are greedy. But as an indie author myself, I can attest to the fact that I make a minimum profit of 35% of the sale of my book through Amazon International and 70% in the US. They are not considered my publisher either. I am my own publisher. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY-- I know EXACTLY what the start up costs of publishing a book are because I pay for those out of my own pocket before the reader even sees the finished product and it's not as expensive as "the big guys" lead you to believe. As a consumer myself, I know how hard it is to afford food and shelter because I've struggled just like you all too. In fact, there are plenty of times that I STILL do. I remember a time when I was a teen and I could walk into a book store and pay a reasonable $5 for a paperback and about 10-15 for a hardcover. This is just simply not true anymore. As an author, it is important to me for all of yo

Young Living Essential Oils and Jessica Collamati

From time to time I come across people in my everyday life that are doing some amazing things to help Fibro sufferers. And recently I had the pleasure of chatting with just such a lady.  Her name is Jessica Collamati. She has two sons that she homeschools and she is an independent distributor of Young Living Essential oils. As many of you know, I'm a BIG fan of integrating alternative therapies with regular therapy when it comes to daily pain management. Essential oils are a big part of therapy for me. I use them in a variety of ways from aroma and massage therapy to cooking and bathing.  Jessica's essential oils are no different, Young Living started in 1993 as an organic herb farm and and distillery and soon became the largest, most technologically advanced distillery for the production of essential oils in North America. Ms. Collamati just recently started distributing with this company. She is a huge fan of the oils and uses them for her own chronic pain issues,
