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)

From the Author
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.

Dr. Michael L. Johnson author of "What Do You Do When the Medications Don't Work--A Non-Drug Treatment of Dizziness, Migraine Headaches, Fibromyalgia, and Other Chronic Conditions".
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.
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.
