I just made a feed for ChronicBabe.com, [info]chronicbabefeed. From a write-up of the blog on Medscape.com:

"Jenni Prokowpy is a freelance writer who has first-hand experience living with chronic health issues. When she first started blogging, her goal was to shed light on life with chronic illness. Soon, her site became a reservoir of practical information as well as a source of empowerment for women living with chronic illness, and others became contributing writers as well."

Rest, motivation, and exercise

Help! I need some ideas about how to actually motivate myself to get out of bed just even an hour earlier so I can go to the gym before work. I've tried going to bed earlier, setting everything out I need the next morning and day the night before, etc., but lately it's been a serious case of DO NOT WANT.

Suggestions please?

Free Literature on Arthritis

The Arthritis Foundation has a number of free publications that can be ordered online. Up to two free selections can be made through the site every 30 days, and unfortunately free items can't be shipped overseas.

I don't have fibromyalgia personally, but some of my online friends do, and thought posting this might be helpful. Medscape just posted a CME (Continuing Medical Education) activity for physicians on fibromyalgia. You'll have to register to view it, but registration is free, and the activity is here. FYI, Medscape is owned by WebMD, and I often access it for work.
