Thank you for this detailed story. As you say Dan, it all helps put the pieces of one’s own puzzle together as we here the key actions that assisted someone else. Very helpful and I thank you both for your energy and time in helping others climb out of this barrel we are climbing out of. ??

I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 12 years ago. I’m in my 70s and feel that I’m in constant pain and can’t sleep well. I would love for the pain to go away and also get a good night’s sleep
