EXCERPTS“The use of these [psychotropic] drugs for fibromyalgia is no more supported by research than the use of antibiotics is supported for a viral infection. Psychotropic drugs are strong and change the physiology of the brain in many ways that are not yet understood and may add to the problem.” ” While you wait for an effective medical treatment that doesn’t take into account the relationship problems I have been explaining, I ask you to weigh the further possibility that the pain and disability you are experiencing may be caused by something few people- doctors and patients alike- ever consider. This element, creativity, is very much a part of every total behavior you choose. It can affect any or all of its components. Could it be that the more creative you are, the more you are susceptible to “diseases” such as fibromyalgia?”– William Glasser, M.D.
