"I am enriched as a person by the relationships and self-awareness developed by my journey with chronic pain."
There is no cure for Fibromyalgia. If you have it, it will not kill you, but it can make you miserable for long stretches of time. If your life must be spent with FM, you have to accept it, accept the changes it brings to your life, and find a way to *live* despite it.
This book contains daily inspiration and advice on how to become more aware of your body, and how your actions affect every aspect of FM. A single picture per day is a nice focal point, while you think about the words given, and what your response will be to the exercise or prompt.
I can imagine this book would be great for journaling or for blogging prompts; recording your progress and to identify what types of inspiration work for you. It could also work well in a support group meeting as an opening activity. It is a book I think I will revisit many times, not to "see how it ends" but to keep myself centered and positive in my life with FM.
While the title uses the word "devotional" this book is not religious; it finds pertinent quotes and ideas from many sources. It offers everything from an outline to help you plan a meeting with a doctor, to exercises for remembering what makes you laugh until you cry!
This book offers the reader a chance to take control of a disease that seems unpredictable, by examining our own thought processes together with the recommendations of our doctors.
I would recommend this book to all fibromyalgia patients, as well as patients living with chronic pain of any source. It offers thoughtful advice, facts, and encouragement to move forward and feel better.

My thanks to the authors for such an easy yet complicated topic for sufferers and friends.
It's easy for someone who isn't the one in pain to judge others. Thank you for bringing all of these tactics to my attention.
