To the Editor:
The Syndrome Sentine

I read many pages of this superb publication on Saturday afternoon, December 2nd. I especially liked Lisa Lorden's discussion on pages 3-4, Moira Smith's discussion on pages 5-9 and Maggie MacRaven's comments on pages 35-36. Actually, I must admit, those are the only ones I've read, but I liked all of them!

BRAVO for the Volume 3, #3/4 (Summer/Fall 2000) issue of the SYNDROME SENTINEL. An absolutely terrific compendium of practical news, scholarly research updates, and carefully sifted research outcomes that should cause unblemished shame on the face of anyone who continues to pout nowadays that "Print is dead...you can find anything for free now on the Internet." There was truly something for everyone.

Ok gang, I have been online for almost 5 years. I have seen it all when it comes to FM and overlapping syndromes. But.....this newsletter beats all I have ever seen.

The Syndrome Sentinel beats them all. This is not a newsletter, it is a book. It has the basics, such as what is the difference between FM and CFS, it has a symptom list you can fill out to take to you doctor, but it is much more.

It has current research studies going on. It has timely articles written by professionals in the field, it has suggested reading by authors in the know, it has book reviews and soon it will have a column addressing special sexual issues we FM'ers have. I know I have left out some of the features, but I think it is more than worth the price. Nobody makes a profit off of this -- the subscription price just goes to cover the cost of the printing and postage.

You can be up-to-date on FM, find support and have access to information that you may never see otherwise to help change your circumstances. I am wowed by the spectrum of information in this publication and wanted to share it with you all. To read more or to find out how to subscribe, head to  http://www.cssa-inc.org/ .

Hi Nancy,

Coming from one who knows how difficult it is to write an interesting newsletter...The Syndrome Sentinel is one of the most informative newsletters out there.

My best to you,

Helen Kraft

Dear Nancy,

Thank you so much! What an excellent publication -- it arrived yesterday!

I can't wait to sit down with it and read it more in depth. I like that it appears to represent a cross section of opinions and practical strategies.  I'll send you my membership/ subscription fee next time I sit down with my bills.

Good job!

Jan Horton

Dear Editor:

We are impressed with The Syndrome Sentinel; our subscription payment is in the mail.  The Syndrome Sentinel and it's balanced approach fill a glaring void. For too long, there has been no publication devoted to integrated forms of health care for patients who suffer from the syndromes listed in The Sentinel's title.  This absence was inconsistent with the rising popularity of alternative methods of health care.

 Slowly but steadily, more and more patients and health care practitioners are realizing that a balance and combination of alternative approaches is essential for any of us to enjoy high-level health. The Syndrome Sentinel is imbued with the spirit of this new health care model. We feel that your publication is vitally important to the health of all victims of syndromes such as fibromyalgia. We wish you the greatest success.

Dear Editor:

Your newsletters arrived last Saturday, and by Sunday I had read every word.  Having subscribed to and read much literature in the field, I have to say that this is the best publication I have seen to date.

Dear Editor:

Thank you! I have LOVED your newsletter.  It is what I would have done if i were less sick and more literate.  Very well done.  You have the wisdom, compassion, moxie and good taste to separate the wheat from the chaff.   I am on many support group newsletter mailing lists, but you give the best value per page.  Keep up the great work!

Tom Hennessy
Founder, RESCIND

Dear Editor:

My rehab worker was most impressed with your pamphlet out of all the info in the packet I gave him...so kudos to you!!!  He felt it was the most helpful for him to understand fibromyalgia.  Their entire office is getting packets with your info and his blessing.

Dear Editor:

I would like to get copies of your flyer for distribution on May 12th for FMS Awareness Day.  I have read a lot of flyers and yours is the most impressive I've seen.  We expect to distribute to doctors' offices, hospitals, and to have a booth in at least one shopping mall, possibly two.

Carol Reid

Dear Editor:

I just wanted to let you know that both times I have published articles in THE SYNDROME SENTINEL, I have received very kind and appreciative responses from your readers, the gist of which is "...it is so good to know that someone really understands what I am going through."  It makes me feel good to know that people are touched by what I write, and I also enjoy reading what the other authors have contributed.
