Women and Fibromyalgia
Monday 24 September 2007
Author Barbara A Keddy, RN, PhD, has published a book entitled Women and Fibromyalgia: Living with an Invisible Dis-ease.
Here is a decription of the book by Barbara:
Many of the books on fibomyalgia tend to focus primarily on how to live with the condition or are searching for medical causes. While there is value in this approach I believe we need more answers about why fibromyalgia is more common in women.
This is a book that will share twenty Black and Caucasian women’s stories of courage in living with this unbelievably common, debilitating and chronic condition. It is storytelling that allows voices to be heard that have often been silenced. During the process of interviewing the women I lived through an ‘aha’ moment that led me to a possible, and highly likely explanation about why fibromyalgia occurs primarily in women.
