Say No To New News


How long has it been? A month? Wow. I feel like such a slacker. Honestly, though, I've received nothing new in the questions department that I haven't been able to direct to an archived post and of course, I've been busy trying to build my writing career. No easy feat for us FibroMates!

I have received material from the media and medical communities about new pharms arriving on the shelves, new tests whispered in the underground etc. and I've also been asked why I haven't posted these things here when other websites and blogs have "Fibro News" everywhere, all day, every day.

I'm just going to answer simply: I'll leave the iffy news to the website and blog updaters who need daily material. I don't post daily. I post when a question arises or I have something from personal experience to share. So, for me, in regards the the latest and greatest breaking news... I like to hang back until more tests are done outside of the pharm companies OR until I try this new drug or herb or crazy rumor and then either tout it or smack it down.

With my silence on these new drugs or herbs etc, I do not intend to discredit early research. I simply need something with more than a 20-30% success rate with an error % around the same % as the success rate.

But this does NOT mean I am not hopeful in these newfangled shiny Fibro things! I am keeping my ear to the ground and will report any amazing finds I...well...find!

All my best to you my dearest friends! I apologize if you felt I abandoned you. I'm here!
