    Here's a link for a feature article appearing Tuesday. July 14 on CNN's website

    Slowly but surely over the last 12 months, the language used in media about FM has shifted from it being an 'emotional' or purely stress based disorder to a medical syndrome which is now taken seriously by the medical profession (that would include research, shrinks etc.)
    This is only good news for those of us having to explain FM to doubting employers and relatives and SSDI.

    Thanks for the link...its so positive to see fibromyaglia in print...articles that are getting the word out that we do suffer and it is real.

    I did read in the article that the doctor thinks exercise is an important part of treating FM, its all so confusing for me because I have CFS and exercise leaves me so whipped.
