I posted about this before, but it was before the magazine was on the shelves, so I thought I would bring atention to it again, now that it is current. The issue is August 1, 2008 and the article titled "living in Pain" begins on page 70. I thought it was an excellent article about one woman's familiar "journey" with fibro, from onset to her own eventual self-diagnosis (doctors dismissed her), her quest for S.S. and finally finding a doctor who "believed". She was prescribed Lyrica and was one of the lucky few who received some relief from it, but was by no means CURED. She also takes other prescriptions and supplements and needed to change to a less stressful job. During this time, her teen-age daughter also began to experience symptoms and is now on medications, and yet still needs to behomeschooled. Although the article mentions Lyrica, I do not feel that it comes off like a miracle drug, but I DO feel that honest articles should point out that few are able to tolerate the side-effects. STILL, for a popular main-stream publication, I appreciate the coverage of the syndrome in an honest and respectful way. It may have ended slightly upbeat (they have so far found ways to MANAGE), it does present a credible reality....their management involves changing a career and having to homeschool (how many parents can do that!), implies the very real and continuing hardship of this condition.
