“One morning recently, it came to me that on virtually every working day for the past 30 years I’ve been taking care of patients one-on-one, listening as people revealed their lives and pains, their anxieties and worst fears. It also occurred to me that I'm lucky to still immensely enjoy what I do and that I was actually looking forward to the patients I'd be seeing later that afternoon because I truly feel I’m helping them. Looking back over those three decades, I decided the five finest words any doctor can ever hear are: I think I'm feeling better.”

This is the best book I have ever read on fibromyalgia and the most helpful. Finally I found an explanation for the medications, both prescription and supplements. A must buy for anyone with fibromyalgia.
