The following are resources I have found to be helpful as a person with fibromyalgia.
The following are specifically helpful for those who have fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome.
- Fibromyalgia Network published a really great newsletter. There are still some articles on the site, so I’m leaving it here.
- The National Fibromyalgia Association has a free online mailing list as well as offering its print magazine to members and subscribers.
- The National ME/FM Action Network is a “Canadian, registered, non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the recognition and understanding of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) through education, advocacy, support, and research.”
- Support Fibromyalgia is, “a patient-centered nonprofit dedicated to educating and inspiring the Fibromyalgia community.”
This list is somewhat dated, but they’re still good books. I’m working on checking out some newer books.
