In this issue: There’s plenty of colour and life and beauty yet left in you. The best kind of support group I’ve discovered in 2017. ‘Zero to Hero’ – a great fitness programme designed for people with fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Oska Pulse, the pain device that was approved by the FDA in only two weeks. Learning to become your own advocate when no one takes your pain seriously. Reclaiming parts of the ‘old you’ for good. The lasting impact on your self-identity when a part of your body is removed. “We don’t deserve coffee, but you do”. The lack of empathy when there’s ‘only’ pain in your cheek. When people keep selling you holistic ‘cures’ for your lifelong illnesses.
