"Fibromyalgia is not a 'clean' disease like diabetes, precisely classified and precisely treated. My own experience has taught me that fibromyalgia is an illness much like other chronic conditions that must be considered from biological, psychological, social, and spiritual perspectives. There has been a great lack of public information on this common debilitating condition, but this book should go a long way toward educating people. Theresa Foy DiGeronimo gives us a sensitive and comprehensive book that will be of tremendous value to people with fibromyalgia."
—From the Foreword by Joseph E. Scherger, M.D., M.P.H.
