In my reading today I found this information. It's helpful and applicable to our daily intake of supplements or whatever we do to cope and function.

I hope you find it helpful!

"Fibromyalgia predisposition"

Some studies have showed that fibro patients are deficient in Serotonin and Norepinephrine, and Substance P. These neurotransmission regulators affect the functioning of our heart, lungs and other vital organs and exacerbate the symptoms of fibro. Many of us seem to have been born with a predisposition to develop fibro, which lies latent until some trauma or stressful situation triggers the symptoms and they emerge full-blown.

Heat (weather)

It's been really hot in my area this past 10 days or so.

Heat overwhelms my body and it doesn't know what to do.

Therefore I have headaches. It makes me sleepy and hurt all over.

I've been good and staying in the air conditioning as much as possible.

Despite my efforts the heat still affects me.

I've also been noticing my blood sugar changing. I get low blood sugar levels in this heat. I have to continue to drink a lot of water and eat snacks all day to keep my sugar in balance.

About two months ago I started using Natural Progesterone Cream. <-- Click and read about it. In some of my reading and research I'm finding that hormone imbalance plays a huge roll in how the body functions. There's a common thread with FM and Hormone imbalance. I'm thinking part of what's going on with me now is that the natural progesterone cream is working on my body and getting things lined out. I've noticed a change in my body. Not necessarily the weight, but that the fat is changing. If you read the link above you'll know what I'm talking about.

New Fibro Journal Blog

I've decided to use this blog for my fibro journal.

It's much nicer and easier to track and archive.

Also it allows you to make comments.

Please do!

Thank you for your support!
