I know we don't live in a perfect world, and yes, I know I'm an idealist but if I had the answer, the secret, the remedy, for Fibromyalgia I'd tell you all, I'd spread the word, I'd shout it from the roof tops. I wouldn't sell it to you.
I know we all have to make a living and perhaps the inspirational, life coaching and other self-help guides are a different matter; in fact I've bought and read many worthwhile books myself.
What particularly worries me is when I see an advert claiming to have beaten FM, 'I used to suffer but healed myself and you too can learn the secret' by buying their book or potion etc.
I have the best consultant I could ever wish for and if there was a way to 'cure' my FM I feel sure he would have told me and not left me in this condition.
So I'll continue my journey to ease my symptoms by whatever works for me at any given time and won't waste energy or money on 'the answer'. I'll share my experiences, good and bad, with you in my blog, and look forward to hearing what works for you and what doesn't.
Now, I'll step down from my soap box and carry on scouring the internet with my credit card safely in my purse.
My Dad always says that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
