Taking up the Slack: Flares, Frets and Fibro. What was I thinking? Why did I try to adhere to the New Year’s resolutions I fretted over making in the first place....why did I try to do too much? Why do I have to be in a flare?

"This discrepancy between Eli Lilly’s prescribing literature and its actual research findings has prompted hundreds of former Cymbalta users to file suit against the drug make" So, why is Big Pharma winning these cases where significant damage was done due to improper negligent reporting on study results in the package insert? An advocate speaks.

When our car is acting up, we take it to the mechanic who will ask certain questions and expect certain answers necessary for identifying the problem. The same is true with our doctor. Would you like to improve your relationship? Tips from Celeste at +Health Central http://www.healthcentral.com/chronic-pain/c/662034/179185/practical-building

Living with one condition is tough. Trying to manage two can feel like an uphill battle. I agree. Great article with good information.

Coping strategies can vary among each of us. I write as a way of coping, others learn new hobbies that fit their abilities. What matters most, is that we find positive ways to cope with our pain and avoid the pitfalls of negativity....http://www.celestecooper.com/coping-strategies.html

Cat videos. Even when you don't have any spoons to spare and your brain fog is thickest, you can always watch cat videos.

#7 Best Sellers in Pharmacology Pain Medicine. I am not surprised. If you live with chronic pain, if you treat chronic pain, if you know someone with chronic pain, this is a must read. I have thanked Dr. Webster many times for writing such a heartfelt, truthful, and thought-provoking book, but it will never be enough.

RN, author, fibromyalgia expert at ShareCare.com
Introduction

Toward the end of a twenty-year nursing career in critical care, emergency nursing, and education,  I found that the work I loved so much was no longer possible. My story is typical…

 *Excerpt from the introduction to Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Myofascial Pain: the Mind-Body Connection. Available here

I now have the privilege of of writing on chronic pain as a Health Pro at Health Central. You can read more about it here or visit me directly, here.

Since this introduction to our first book, I have had the honor of being a volunteer fibromyalgia expert for four years at Sharecare.com an online health forum created by Dr. Mehmet Oz and others.

I have been able to fulfill one of my personal goals to further advocacy by becoming a volunteer participant in the Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy. here

I continue to write health books and advocate for all people who suffer with chronic pain or invisible illness. You can read more about my books on my website and about who I am as an author, here. I continue to contribute to articles and journals, and I write a blog here

I started writing to help others, but what I learn is that I help myself. In healing and hope, Celeste

Dr. Karl Hurst-Wicker is now with the Desert Pain Institute in Mesa, AZ. I am so glad he made the move. I was leery since I was starting with a new doctor who was taking Dr. Cho’s place. I was pleasantly surprised. Dr. Karl Hurst-Wicker is knowledgeable and his skills are superior to any other pain doctors I have seen. He understands myofascial pain syndrome, the appropriate treatments, and all other related procedures for conditions that cause chronic pain. It is my pleasure to work with such a compassionate person who listens and takes my complaints seriously. In my 10+ years as pain care consumer, I have never experienced what it means to have a physician who works as a team member to investigate the right treatments for me. He is not only willing to collaborate, he embraces it and puts my outcome above all else so that I can live as productively as possible despite living with daily pain. I appreciate what a difference a team effort can make and I recommend Dr Hurst-Wicker to anyone who lives with chronic pain.
