    Accupuncture

    6
    Hi everyone,I had a accupuncture session this morning, it was awesome! The chinese doctor was real nice, he must have put in 40 needles, from my head down to my feet! Left me there for a 1/2 hour, since I meditate it was not a problem to lie still with 40 needles in me, time flew by. If anyone has had this done by a real accupuncturist, it really is amazing. I barely made it home, went to sleep...

    Anyone here with Kaiser Permanente?

    7
    I have just gone through a miserable situation with Kaiser Permanente that I won't go into now, but it made me want to ask if anyone here is a member of KP. During this recent crisis, I discovered that the 'Family Medicine' doctors are THE go-to place for treatment for fibro. I discovered this after having to change doctors and, the first appointment/interview I had with my new doctor, I asked...

    Hi y'all!

    Just a quick hello to all and I'm still alive.... haven't been on here for a while. Just moved to an area that is a four hour drive from previous home. Moving sucks! Specially when you hurt all the time. Moved the equivalent of a one car garage packed full using a truck and 3 horse trailer...ugh!I have probably about another three weeks of crap that need to do until I can have some decent down...

    Fibromyalgia for Dummies

    3
    I bought this book the other day, since so many people have recomended it to me. I have only got to chapter 3 so far, but I just want to thank everyone for suggesting it. For the first time in a very long time, I feel like there are doctors who do believe us and are willing to help. I am excited to continue reading and I hope it continues to give me faith in actually living a relatively normal...
