    I didn't get to the meeting today but I did have a question for everyone. Had anyone tried a tens unit to help control pain. I've been using one for about 6mo now n I find if I use it when my pain is minimal it gives some relief. So if you haven't tried a tens unit it's definitely worth looking into.

      I have a tens unit that anyone is welcome to try while they're over. I've tried it and it doesn't really do anything for me, but I'll give it another try.

      Holly, the trick is to use the different area settings in any spot different times, it don't take the pain 100% away but it reduces it to a tolerable level.

    Here's the interesting chart we talked about at today's meeting. Researchers asked 1,401 people suffering from Fibromyalgia to rate the effectiveness of 104 different treatments. Here are the results. Be sure to also check out their live-updated, fully-labelled, interactive version of this infographic.

    Hi Holly,
    I'm not sure I will be able to make the meeting. It is 3:45a.m. and I am still up. My body is dead tired, but my brain refuses to shut down. I'm hoping I can get some sleep before this afternoon.

      Hi Delores, I hope you were able to get some sleep finally. Take it easy and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Look forward to seeing you soon.

    Hello again, I am still willing and excited to host an evening/or late afternoon on weekend for fibro fighters and their loved ones. If you want to pick a few dates and let me know what works for the group. I'm not available June 6, 9-11, 17-18 other than that I'm fairly open. July is wide open. And most of August is free.

    Also if you want to discuss with the group about doing a Fundraiser with MaryKay and people were willing to drive to Oconomowoc (as that way I'm not hauling all of the products as they are set up in my spare bathroom and office), I'd be willing to host the July or August meeting.

    And one last thing....if there is anyone that lives near Ocononomowoc and wants to drive to meetings together I'd be so appreciative. Part of the problem is driving is hard on me

    Thanks!

    Great info and conversation, as always. We also learned about a member's huge success with a migraine treatment! YAY SUCCESS! The resident dachshunds also made a special appearance. Thanks to everyone who came, and a special welcome to first-time-attendee, Sandi!

    I had planned on coming but am not feeling well. The pain is and has been horrible. I was hoping to meet some people who understood and could become friends with. Are any of you on Facebook, so that we may chat there from time to time? Eventually I hope to be able to make the meetings. Thanks.

    Hi Holly,
    I hate to bail but I am. It's been a very stressful, anxiety prone week. I'm just not up to going out. I'm going to go to the beach, read a magazine, relax and have some me time.
