Self-published minibook on fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia may knock you down, but you don’t have to stay there. In Owning Fibromyalgia: Finding Your Roses and Rainbows, Becky Howell discusses with brutal honesty her journey with this sometimes strange and always frustrating disease, from self-diagnosis to personal discovery of how to live life to the fullest. After years of struggle, Becky is now “livin’ fabulous with fibro” and gives tips and encouragement to those who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. 

Becky’s main message is that fibro doesn’t have to rule your life. With careful planning and self-awareness, you can live an (almost) normal life – some parts will be worse and some parts better. Most of all, you’ll know you are not alone, you are not crazy, and you do not have to be a slave to your disease. 

Anyone with fibro or anyone who loves someone with fibro can relate to her journey, her pain, her frustration, and finally, her triumph.
