Editorial Reviews

Review

Sue has written something that is needed and that will make a difference to you. I highly recommend this book. -- Jane Kohler, Fibrom-L book reviewer

Sue's poetry is beautiful. Her mixture of truth, pain, and humor inspires us to face each day with hope. -- Fibromyalgia Frontiers, 2001 (Volume 9, Number 3)

This well-written book will tug at your heart. As you read, you will see yourself in the pages. -- Devin Starlanyl, M.D., author of "Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome: A Survival Manual"

From the Author

Many people suffering from fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome, as I do, had told me I was able to express, through my words, their thoughts and feelings about this illness. Thus, I decided to write a book that gives voice to FMS/CFS through both poetry and prose. I wrote "Parting the Fog" in easy-to-understand language, so families and friends of sufferers can gain better insight as to the reality of being stricken with FMS/CFS. It will enable them to better understand us and thus, give them the ability to relate to us more effectively.

It is extremely important to me, as a longtime sufferer myself, to help others with this misunderstood, debliltating illness. If you are living under the weight of FMS/CFS, I hope this book will comfort, validate and encourage you through its word of hope, hardship and inspiration. Humor is sprinkled throughout the book, as well, as I believe it is vital to our well-being. My goal for "Parting the Fog" is that as you read it, you will have a good laugh, have a good cry, and come away satisfied that YOUR story has been told at last. But mostly, I hope you will glean something from this book that will change your life for the better.

For all of you that are suffering with Fibromyalgia and/or CFS, as I am, I recommend this book. It is not only good information for those who are ailing, but for those they live with, or are just very close to. This was the first time in a long time I read a book that I could not put down. What I think is most important is that Sue Jones suffers from the same problems and knows first hand how we all feel. She offers some very good tips on "what not" and "what" to say to us who are not feeling well. Not everyone understands a person with FMS/CFS and if you are serious about learning because of someone you love, or for whatever reason, Read This Book!

This is a fantastic book!!!! Over the past 21 years I have personally treated thousands of patients suffering from fibromyalgia. Sue Jones articulates their suffering beautifully and eloquently. This book should be read by all who suffer from or are close to those with this debilitating condition. Please......do yourself a favor and read this book!

"Parting the Fog" is a moving and educational story of the tragic, lonely and heroic struggle of someone with Fibromyalgia. This book is fundamental for those who suffer as well as those who are family and friends. It will provide solace and understanding for all who come into contact with this debilitating and misunderstood disease. As a Fibromyalgia sufferer, "Parting the Fog" not only gave me validation for what I am feeling but also the comfort of knowing I am not alone. I highly recommend this book.

I have read many, many books on fibromyalgia since I have had it for over 40 years. This is absolutely without question, the most encouraging and informative book that I have ever read. It is one of the few books that I have read during one sitting. I have a hard time sitting and reading because of the fibromyalgia in my neck. One of the reasons I liked the book so well, is that it is not difficult to read and it really touched my soul for months afterwards. I have reread several parts of it and can refer to it over and over again. I was very depressed when I started reading it, and after a few chapters, my spirits were lifted and my knowledge increased. I have bought over 30 copies so far for family, friends, and fellow fibromyalgics so far and no doubt, I will be ordering more in the future. I am the leader of a large fibromyalgia support group. Many members of the group liked the book as well and thus, they have been getting it for family and friends too. My husband is an avid reader and has read this book a couple of times. Please add this book to your library. I don't think you will regret it.
Sincerely,
Karla Wirth

Finding this book was a salvation for me. Not clinically written, this is the personal insight of another human revealed for us to benefit from. For myself, coming from a very strong work ethic where complaint of illness was not acceptable, a Fibromyalgia diagnosis has been very frustrating and difficult to accept. I was able to identify with Sue's story enabling me to feel less alone and better equipped to cope. Each chapter provides a wonderful explanation of all facets of Fibro life written from a sufferer with an excellent attitude laced with humor and compassion. The end of each section enables you to write about your personal experience with the issue discussed so I felt able to unload some of my frustration as well as share with family and my Fibro support group, my personal story. On my * bad * days I can re-read my writing and understand I have had days like this before, they will pass and better days will come, leaving me with hope and feeling more relaxed, less uptight and kinder to myself. Those with whom I share the book who don't understand what life is like with this affliction have a chance to appreciate the impact it has on your life.

I very highly recommend owning 2 copies of this book. One for writing your most private feelings for yourself and those you feel comfortable sharing said feelings with and a second copy with a less personal journal to share with others you are not as close to.

I received "Parting The Fog" in the mail and decided to glance through it before bed. At 2 o'clock in the morning, I finally finished it. I simply could not put it down. Sue Jones understands and writes about every single aspect of having Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue. The reader and fellow sufferer feels so comforted and understood, because it details her daily life and struggle. Everyone with fibromyalgia should have this book and ask their family and friends to read it. It will help them understand, so much better, what it's like to have this disease. It's not that long and is a very easy read. We recommend this book to members at our support group meeting every month, and I highly recommend it to those with fibro and those who love them.

Have you been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, or are you the loved one of someone who has? Are you looking for a resource that will help you to understand what is happening to you, and what to do next? This illness, which is difficult to diagnose and even harder to treat, can turn one's life upside-down. I know because, like Sue Jones, I too have been dealing with Fibromyalgia for years. In her new book, "Parting the Fog: the Personal Side of Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", Sue "puts the cookies on the bottom shelf" so that anyone can gain insight on what it is like to live with this disease day to day, in a practical and easy to read style.

Sue delivers the message with warmth, openness, honesty and a truckload of humor. She has included quotes from many fellow FMSers (people who have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia) to broaden the base of understanding and to learn from others' experiences. The chapters are simple to read, and Sue has included poems and writings that give the reader a glimpse into her heart. She has also cleverly added a journaling page after each chapter to help the FMSer chronicle their own unique collection of symptoms, experiences, and needs. It is a wonderful way for their families and loved ones to come to more of an understanding of what is going on, and how they can help.

Whenever I am now approached by someone who has recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, or has a loved one that has been...which is happening more often unfortunately...I make sure that they have a copy of Sue's book to help them in this difficult and confusing time in their life. I have bought many books about FMS but this one gives me the hope and the courage to press on in the fight against this illness. Bravo, Sue Jones, and thanks from a fellow FMSer for helping to inspire me in the battle against this devastating disease.
