Our very special guests on today's "Talk to the Author" show will be Author Tom Buford, and his wife Mera. His book on Amazon is titled: "Living with Fibromyalgia Patients: 79 Ways You Can Make Their Lives Better".

Tom Buford is a man whose wife of more than 38 years has suffered with the disabling effects of fibromyalgia for more than a decade. The author is not a medical professional, but he knows first-hand what it is like to watch his wife change from one who earlier in life might have been seen on a lake riding a jet ski or climbing trees in a friend's yard, to one who can hardly get out of bed some mornings. He has found her sitting on her bed silently crying because there was no relief from the pain--even with heavy-duty pain medications.

You will learn:

  • What it is like for them to wake up and hardly be able to move their feet from the mattress to the floor.
  • Why they sometimes can’t “get it together” before lunch time.
  • Why it seems that they have suddenly become forgetful, emotionally sensitive, and much more.

You won't want to miss this show if:

  • You have families or are friends of people who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia
  • You want to know how to deal with fibromyalgia and the ramifications of the illness
  • You, yourself have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have found it difficult to explain the ramifications of your illness
