Said I would read it and give a quick review..... Yup it's written simply.... But it Really is only totally affective if fibro is your only symptom.... Then it actually gets really funny.... I have osteo arthritis and when I got to the section about exercise ie the usual walk a little further each day, try swimming... It then went on to tell you to try rebounding which is bouncing gently on a mini trampoline... My husband and I just burst out laughing at the thought of me on my two sticks and no bra on a bad rib pain day cavorting on a trampoline It was worth buying it for that moment alone. It then went into yoga and with no training she gives you yoga exercises... Standing on one leg with the other tucked into your thigh with your arms above your head in the tree position. Where do I put my sticks for balance .... No really please don,t answer that but feel free to imagine . Then she suggests strapping light weights to your arms and ankles to improve muscle tone..... My OH offer to duct tape a tin of beans to each limb.... As you can see we found the book hilarious but it didnt really offer any new suggestions to long term fibromites with other illnesses... A quick sum up .. Great guide for people new to fibro who find it only mildly debilitating... Otherwise it's hilarious.. Especially the housework chapter... Making your own cleaning products takes longer than cleaning the house, and did you know the bedroom is ONLY to be used for sleep and sex.....that's put the kitchen table out of bounds then... . Would recommend it for the laughs it gave me and my OH though I don't think it's meant to be funny.
