THIS FIBRO/CHRONIC ILLNESS BLOG POST IS WRITTEN BY YOU!
Here’s a Health Riddle:
What gadget can induce pain relief, stress-relief, blood pressure reduction, improved mood and sense of happiness while simultaneously functioning as a safe, natural, non-EMF-emitting heating pad?
You guessed it. It’s Fido — or Felix (a.k.a. Gadget).
There’s no better balm for what ails you than a furry, wagging, and sometimes purring, *shedding, and/or drooling pet.
This blog post is written by you …
I’ve written about her in my book, FibroWHYalgia. She writes a regular column in my monthly newsletter (be sure to sign up so you don’t miss an issue!). I’ve chatted and blogged about her amazing ability to anticipate my needs and provide the right humor/distraction just at the right time.
She tells me when it’s time to eat, time to sleep, time to exercise, time to run around a look for my ringing cell phone, and time to give her the focus and attention she deserves.
So, it’s YOUR time … tell me how YOUR pup, kitty, iguana, birdie, goldfish, or other amazing pet helps you in your daily life’s struggles. Leave comments below so that others can share your stories. We’d all love to hear how YOUR pet is better than any medical treatment out there – and with all positive side effects.

(**And here’s a BONUS tip on the shedding issue. When people [everywhere!] feel the need to extract long Sheltie fur from my black sweaters, I tell them this — and feel free to repurpose it for your own use: “It’s not that I don’t know how to use a lint brush – it’s that I love Pup so much that I choose to carry her DNA with me everywhere I go!”)
