Funkylinda, I'm so sorry to hear about your niece! I'm sending lots of love and good thoughts to you both. I sure hope she finds a good doctor, that is in the area more than once a month! A good doctor is so important, but at least she has someone to see for now.

Thanks for those links. My neice called me today crying after her Dr. apt. and said he told her she has Fibromyalgia and he thinks she has Lupus also but he needs to run more tests. She has 3 small children and I have told her for years that she should have it checked out. I am going to give her this list of numbers so she has a starting point to check out all her resources. I have fibro lupus sjogins and renauds. I have been with my Dr now for about 12 years and she isn't taking new patients and it is hard to find Dr.s in my area who are. She found a Dr who comes to town once a month but at least she has someone to work with her. I started SP to loose weight but I have recieved so much more. It is taking some time but I am loosing weight a little at a time.

Wow thanks for them all.


If youíre going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.
