A woman with an "advanced case of fibromyalgia" talks about the power of guided imagery to give her

18 Jan
A woman with an "advanced case of fibromyalgia" talks about the power of guided imagery to give her relief when she is "tied into unbearable knots", and her goal of using it on a more regular, preventative basis
I suffer with an advanced case of Fibromyalgia, complicated by (literally) everything in the book, physical and emotional. When I am tied into unbearable knots, I use Belleruth''s CDs to keep from going over the edge. Ten minutes and I’m a lot better. It''s been a goal for some time to get to a place where I am using the CDs (I have both the chronic pain and the Fibro CD) on a regular basis and not wait until I''m in a knot. I haven''t managed that yet. I most definitely believe the research about consistency, but am still searching for a way to tuck the practice of using the CDs firmly into my routine. But I did want to offer testimony to the power of imagery for fibromyalgia and to encourage others to use it.
