A Wee Bit of Fibro Humour (Hey! They say laughter is the best medicine!)

CFS/FM Serenity Prayer 
(Author Unknown)

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept
The things I cannot change,
The courage to change
The things I can,
And the wisdom to hide
The bodies of doctors I shot
When they said,
"You're perfectly healthy.
It's All In Your Head."

I will assume that some of you who've read this will be more than able to relate!
Kevin White, MD, PhD


  1. I can so relate to this. I had a doctor tell me this and had to get a second opinion! I now know it is in my head and everywhere else too!

  2. Yes. It turns out that fibromyalgia IS in everyone's head... but in a real way. As I mention in my book, fibro is a disease affecting a part of the brain called the midbrain, which is responsible for the initial interpretation of a number of stimuli, which include pain, temperature, and other sensations. It also is important in sleep regulation and in determining how awake and alert someone is... which explains the fibro fog so many experience.

  3. Dr kevin white the midbrain you talk about is this the Amygdala organ???
