I only heard of this test, “FM/a“, via a radio commercial, this week. I was immediately intrigued. As some of you may know, I know a fair amount about Fibromyalgia given that my ‘Central Pain’ book deals with it in much detail.
What worried me about this test is that we now know that fibromyalgia is a central nervous system disorder. I didn’t think we had any tests that could detect such disorders.
This test claims to test immune system imbalances. I, at least for now, am skeptical.
This test is supposed to ‘rule out’ other diseases. I am not sure I buy that.
The folks promoting this test — for MONEY, of course — have EXTENDED what was the original SCOPE of fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia was about distributed, widespread pain. These folks have extended this to include symptoms of DEPRESSION as well. Given the EXTENDED scope a lot of folks — mainly women (alas) — will fall into the ‘dragnet’. I am sure that MOST in this vulnerable group will LIKE to be told they have fibromyalgia. To them it would be a relief, a vindication. I know. I have LIVED with ‘fibromyalgia’ — though I do NOT have it.
There used to be the 11-point DEFINITIVE TEST for fibromyalgia. That has now been DEBUNKED. Even the original creator of it, a supposed doctor, has admitted that he was wrong. Tens of millions of American women were told they had fibromyalgia based on that 11-point test. Well the test was FAKE.
I am not convinced.
Check out my book. You can read it for free in many places. SMILE.
This video was posted, today, by the U.S. Embassy in London.
They wanted to put this ‘Bust-gate’ into context.

There wasn’t, because they were so persecuted & hunted down, that many to begin with — and by that I am only going back 18-months or so. Yes, they don’t help themselves when it comes to their health. Obesity & alcoholism & with that diabetes is epidemic. It is very, very sad. AND now COVID.
They can’t afford to lose this many, this quickly. Many, by nature, will be ‘elders’. With them we will again lose more culture, expertise, local knowledge & wisdom.
I wonder how many ‘Canyon de Chelly‘ guides MIGHT have died. Wow. I am trying to find out. Not good.
Please, at a minimum, share a THOUGHT for them.
I had NOT really thought about this till today. We all watched about an hour of it, LIVE, from around 11:30am onwards. So, saw the swearing ins, readings & performances. It was uplifting & inspirational. Made sure that the 14-year old saw it. She is remote-school & she didn’t have any classes around that time. I asked her if the teachers had mentioned about watching the inauguration. NO.
I think it should be a holiday. Only happens every 4-years.
When things have settled down I will write to President Biden & my good senators. Get a feeling that Biden might warm to the idea. I am sure he will feature again, as the President, at the next inaugural. SMILE.

You can see it around the 24:28 mark. OK?
For much of my adult life folks have called me ‘Eagle Eyes’. SMILE.
Well, I was just surfing through the cable news channels, at 10pm, when I spotted this. She was doing a GREAT job trying to hide it, but she raised her arm. I spotted it. Then I went looking for it.
I can’t find ANYTHING about it!
Let me know, if YOU find out.
