No More Guilt Needed

Below is an article I just read about the quilt moms with Fibromyalgia feel and worry about how their children will be effected by the conditions.  This article shows there is nothing to feel guilty about and that we actually become closer to our children in many ways.  Hopefully it will reassure you that even when you have to take care of yourself, you can still have a wonderful bond with your kids.

Jacob Teitelbaum MD, is medical director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, a national group of clinics. He is senior author of "Effective Treatment of CFS and FMS: A Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study" (Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, 2001:8(2):3-24) and "The Use of D-Ribose in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia: A Pilot Study" (Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 2006:12(9):857-862. Dr. Teitelbaum is also the author of From Fatigued to Fantastic! (Avery/Penguin Group, 3rd revised edition 2007), Pain Free 1-2-3 (McGraw-Hill), and Three Steps to Happiness! Healing Through Joy (Deva Press).
Dr. Teitelbaum knows CFS/Fibromyalgia as an insider. He contracted Chronic Fatigue Syndrome when he was in medical school and had to drop out for a year to recover. In the ensuing 30 years, he has dedicated his career to finding effective treatment. His web site contains a sophisticated free computer program for analyzing symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, which can create a complete medical record of a patient's case to help patients and physicians determine the best course of treatment to get well.
