Killing Me Softly : Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Deaths

I have always loved this saying

I have always loved this saying

Earlier today I did this blog and I posted it on my Fibromyalgia and any Chronic issue Facebook page for us all to discuss Chronic Illness, things that don’t kill you, they kill your spirit if you let it. I seen this here and I MUST share this page with YOU who have chronic pain or Fibromyalgia or any or any other “Can’t kill you” chronic Condition here> Links and as much info on the “Devils Disease” as I could throw together. Not till I started my Group on Facebook for Chronic Pain/Fibro/Depression, anything Chronic, did I understand the level of suffering in others…

…..I AM NOT ALONE, AS I AM MADE TO FEEL BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. But hey, that is no happy feeling. Reassuring maybe? Our biggest challenge as sufferers is almost impossible to the point we just say ‘Feck it’ and give up. I don’t want to give up on family/friends who don’t like ‘New Shaun’ because to me they are ‘New Them’ it is totally a 2 way street. I notice people look at me as if I am screwing the Government for money, facts are I receive not ONE PENNY from the Government. The only message I want to get through to my loved ones is “This is why I am in bed, this is why I am in a lot, this is why I don’t visit” and once we get past that we can all smile, love, have fun and move the FECK ON! I speak for many (And I tagged a few in here when posting) when I say this, all we want is UNDERSTANDING. Then we can all move on, simple really. But we see things that may not be there, we feel things that may not be there. But to define this is to define Fibro. Fibro is new, not many people know about it, not many who live in pain know they have it. STRESS = PAIN as well as other things with Fibro/CPS, I know in America for example you guys pay for EVERYTHING and that is wrong. Here in Scotland EVERYTHING Health related is free. Now Scotland has greater powers it will only get better. Seeing your Dr is Free, All your Medication is free, Hospital visits be them arranged or not are free, X-Rays and ALL operations are free. I could not survive in a country anywhere where the stress of not knowing all of the above was covered so it must be murder for you guys. My heart goes out to you all 

In Scotland  they grade you 1 to 10…You get asked 100 questions in a book you take home, each question is 1 – good or 10 – DEAD (I am joking, 10 is the worst) I am 10, do you know your score? Try it below

Knowing the signs are crucial, if we can save one life this article and you reading it was worth it

Note: Lisa Lorden Myers, a CFS/fibromyalgia patient from California, is a well-known writer. For three years, she was the Guide to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia at This article was originally published in Fibromyalgia Frontiers, the journal of the National Fibromyalgia Partnership. Lisa now runs the website
Living with CFS & Fibromyalgia.



On August 15, 1996, Dr. Jack Kevorkian reportedly assisted in the suicide of Judith Curren, 42, of Pembroke, Massachusetts. She suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM). Jan Murphy, another FM sufferer, also turned to Kevorkian for help; later reported her assisted suicide in the summer of 1997. A recently publicized investigation in the UK revealed that just last year, Julia Revill, age 58, hanged herself outside her family home after becoming frustrated at a lack of medical help for her Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). ME is the name used abroad for chronic fatigue syndrome. She had shown some improvement after treatment at the UK’s only ME hospital in Essex but had been refused funding by the local health authority for further treatment there, and her condition deteriorated. The loss of “one of our own” always hits hard. These and other reports sent shock waves through the FM/CFS community. Patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome have an exquisite understanding of the pain, both physical pain and emotional anguish, associated with having a poorly understood, incurable disease. “When you start hearing there is no hope, no treatment, and no cure over and over, you lose your will to fight,” wrote Jan Murphy in a eulogy read at her funeral. “What most people saw of me was a shell of what was going on inside.” The FM/CFS community is certainly not alone in addressing the problem of suicide. Each year, about 30,000 people in the United States take their own lives. It is the 11th leading cause of death in our country and accounts for about 1.5% of all deaths in the US.

Suicide and FM/CFS

It is unclear whether there is an increased risk of suicide among FM/CFS patients, as compared to the general population. In 2006, Leonard Jason and colleagues published a study analyzing a memorial list maintained by the National CFIDS Foundation. They reported that suicide was one of the three leading causes of death in the sample, along with heart disease and cancer. The researchers noted several limitations to the study, including uncertainty about whether the list was representative of people with CFS and concluded “clearly, it is not possible to generalize the data from this memorial list to the overall population of patients with CFS.”


The truth I just know hurts us all, Family who get angry with us…

However, there is evidence that chronic pain and illness put patients at risk for suicide. An illness like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, which is often doubted or neglected by the medical community, the public, and sometimes family and friends, can present unique problems. Patients with FM/CFS can become victims of isolation and despair. Secondary depression is a well-known symptom of FM/CFS and is common with any type of chronic pain. Sufferers depend on a variety of sources of support, including pain management, psychological support, and financial support. When one of these essential needs remains unmet over a long period of time, it is possible for patients to begin to believe that their situation is hopeless. In fact, a recent report published by Action for ME, a UK non-profit organization, revealed that 51% of survey respondents have felt suicidal as a result of their illness. Those with the most severe cases of the illness and who received delayed diagnosis and management were most likely to have considered suicide.

Responding to Suicidal Thoughts

How we feel..

How we feel..

Martha Ainsworth, founder and director of Metanoia, a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide prevention, describes the problem of suicide succinctly. She writes, “Suicide happens when pain exceeds resources for coping with pain.” There are many kinds of pain that may lead to suicide, and individuals vary greatly in their capacity to withstand pain. According to Ainsworth, you can survive suicidal feelings if you do either of two things: (1) find a way to reduce your pain, or (2) find a way to increase your coping resources. Both are possible. It is important to realize that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. The Journal of the American Medical Association has reported that 95% of all suicides occur at the peak of a depressive episode. For many people who feel suicidal, there seems to be no other way out. But suicidal thoughts are typically a reflection of distorted thinking caused by severe depression or even by the neurological changes associated with FM/CFS itself. When we are depressed, we tend to see things through the very narrow perspective of the present moment. A week or a month later, things may look completely different.

Warning Signs of Suicide

  • Talking or joking about suicide or statements about being reunited with a deceased loved one

  • Making statements about hopelessness, helplessness, or worthlessness (“Life is useless” or “Everyone would be better off without me.”)

  • Preoccupation with death (recurrent death themes in music, literature, or drawings)

  • Appearing suddenly happier or calmer

  • Loss of interest in things one cares about

  • Unusual visiting or calling people one cares about (saying good-byes)

  • Giving possessions away, making arrangements, or settling one’s affairs

  • Self-destructive or risk-taking behavior (alcohol/drug abuse, reckless driving, self-injury or mutilation)




LOL..So true

Most people who once thought about killing themselves are now glad to be alive. They say they didn’t want to end their lives – they just wanted to stop the pain. According to Dr. William Collinge, Ph.D., author of several books including Recovering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, “If you can remind yourself that the suicidal thoughts or feelings are transitory and symptomatic of the illness, this will help you get through those times when you are in the bottom of the pits and can’t see any way out. Also, talking about your feelings with a confidant or loved one can help immeasurably.”Experts agree that talking about suicidal feelings is one of the most important things you can do. Talking to a caring and supportive friend or family member can be helpful, and there are a variety of helplines and support groups to whom people who are feeling suicidal can reach out. Severe depression, the primary cause of suicide, is highly treatable. If depression is recognized and treated, many suicides can be prevented. Anyone who has suffered with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome knows that it requires a huge adjustment, not only to the illness itself but to all the consequences it has on our lives. Chronic illness is likely to affect the way sufferers live, the way they see themselves, and how they relate to others. With the present state of world events, many people are feeling additional tension, anxiety, or sadness. But suffering with severe depression may be unnecessary. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, it’s essential that you know you don’t have to go it alone. Suicide is preventable, and there are a variety of resources that can provide the support you need.

10 Mysterious Photos that cannot be Explained…


The Solway Firth Spaceman Mystery

By Shaun Gibson – @ShaunyNews

As a lad who has always been drawn to the unnatural and unreal in life I am always on the lookout for things to spark my imagination and get me thinking. Many ask me “Shaun, how can you sleep at night doing all this” The answer is simple, I am open minded and I don’t scare easy. I never understand where %s for canvassing comes from but one I seen today told us this

People who believe in God are 73% less likely to politically and socially confront injustice in this life.

Basically people who believe in the good book and God are less likely to ask questions others do. I am a believer in “Live and let live” a moral God and Bible lovers alike should also try and be, not all, but the majority. I added ‘John Lennon – Imagine’ to my sidebar on right there and I got a reply “Oh no Shaun, I can’t have that, why would we want to heaven” Now the person was referring to the lyrics “Imagine there’s no Heaven” NOW…I ask many questions of many people as I crave knowledge so when debate happens I can hold my own a little. I asked a religious person “How could Noah have got 2 of every Animal onto a boat, he had no way of going to say Australia and getting 2 Kangaroos” The answer is the same EVERY TIME “It’s a metaphor Shaun” Well, the Song Imagine speaks of a World where there is no religious hatred, no intolerance towards others and peace on Earth, something we will never see as throughout history we see we are a species of war, power and wealth, the haves and have not’s = THE SONG IS A METAPHOR FOR PEACE ON EARTH, AGAIN, SOMETHING NONE OF US WILL EVER SEE

Anyway, a video and the images to go with it, I find this stuff truly fascinating, to open one’s mind to possibilities we can’t imagine is a good thing, as above with the % re: God, I could not live a life with a one track mind believing only what a book tells me, but trust me, I respect anyone and everyone’s will, who am I to judge anyone? I am not perfect, nobody is, yet we judge anyway




10. Does The Babushka Lady Have Evidence To JFK’s Assassination?


Many mysteries still cloud the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy. One of them is the Babushka Lady, a nickname that was given to an unidentified woman who was repeatedly recorded at the scene of the shooting, using a video recorder. Police tried tracking down the woman, in hopes that her footage would reveal clues that could help with the investigation, but to this day, she has never been identified.

A woman named Beverly Oliver came forward in 1970, claiming to be the Babushka Lady. She said that either FBI or Special Agents had tracked her down years prior and requested to develop the film she had taken at the scene of the crime, which she handed over. They then vanished, and she never heard from them again. Oliver’s claims have been highly discredited due to various inconsistencies with her story, mainly the fact that she was 17 years old at the time, when the photos seem to show a middle-aged woman, and her inability to correctly identify the model of the camera she was known to be using. In 1994, Oliver wrote a book chronicling her memories of Dallas the day of the shooting, entitled, Nightmare In Dallas. Oliver was also the basis for a scene in John Oliver’s film, JFK.

9. Hessdalen Lights: Alien Or Natural Battery?


The Hessdalen Lights are a spectacular, but unexplained light show, that can be seen various times throughout the year in the skies over Norway. The lights were most active from 1981 through 1984, when people traveled from all over the world to camp out and see the lights which were said to be visible 15-20 times per week. These days, the sightings are down to about 15-20 times a year.

A scientific explanation for these lights remains unproven, leading many to hypothesize that they are caused by alien spacecraft. Other sightings including headlights, mirages, astronomical bodies and aircraft have been noted.

However, as of May 2014, some scientists think they might have uncovered the mystery. The hypothesis is that the metallic rock inside the mountains, combined with the heavy amounts of sulfur in the river, have created a battery. When ionized gas is created from the fumes, the lights become visible. This theory is still not proven, though, and the mystery continues.

8. The Mystery Of The Hook Island Sea Monster


If these photos of the Hook Island Sea Monster were taken present day, they would largely be accused of Photoshop. However, they were taken on December 12, 1964 and have been widely circulated since then. And, in case you’ve forgotten, there was no Photoshop in 1964.

Robert Le Serrec and his wife were off the coast of Stonehaven Bay in Hook Island, Queensland. When his wife spotted the alarming mass on the lagoon floor, they took several photos while trying to identify it. They are reported as saying it looked like a giant tadpole-like creature, with an estimated length of 75-80 feet long. The assumed creature didn’t move and the couple thought it might be dead, so they approached it in hopes of gaining recorded footage of it. But when the creature began moving and opened its mouth, they hurried back to their boat in which time, the creature swam away.

7. The Solway Firth Spaceman Mystery


When Jim Templeton took photos of his wife and daughter on a sunny day in Cumbria, England, during the summer of 1964, he didn’t know he would soon become a permanent debate among conspiracy theorists and UFO believers. But that’s what happened when he had his film developed and noticed, what appears to be a man in a space suit, standing behind his daughter. Templeton said that he did not notice anyone other than his wife and daughter at the time of shooting. When he took the photos to the police, they gave it back to him and said there was nothing suspicious about it. But when his local newspaper picked it up an hour later, it was soon circulating worldwide.

Many people have debunked this photo by saying that, what appears to be a spaceman is nothing more than the girl’s mother standing farther up the hill behind her, washed out by an optical illusion of light and shadows. Others firmly stand by the claim that it is a spaceman, with legends of a missile launch that was set to take place in the same area, that was abruptly aborted because of sightings of two men in white spacesuits that match the description of the figure in the Templeton’s photo.

6. The S.S. Watertown Phantom Faces


James Courtney and Michael Meehan were cleaning a cargo tank on the S.S. Watertown on its way to New York City, in 1924. The men were overcome with gas fumes and died. As customary of the time, the two men were buried at sea. But for days following their sea burial, the reflections of the two men’s faces were seen in the water. The faces were so clear, Captain Keith Tracy followed orders to get a photograph of the two phantoms, which he did.

5. Is There An Alien Satellite Orbitting Earth?


Could there possibly be a satellite that has been orbiting earth for the past 13,000 years, that was put there by aliens? If you believe the Black Knight conspiracies, then the answer is yes. Some have tied it to the “long delayed echoes” and a radio signal that Nikola Tesla picked up in 1899, which he believed to be coming from outer space. The rumors of it being a satellite originated in the 1950s, when newspaper stories were published, attributing UFO researcher Donald Keyhoe, to claims that the U.S. Air Force had reported finding two satellites orbiting the Earth when none had been launched from Earth at that point.

4. The Cooper Family’s Unwanted Dinner Guest


Legend has it, when the Cooper family (shown in the photo) moved into their new house, this was the first photo that was taken. When the picture was developed, the image of a body falling from the ceiling was clearly visible. Further investigation on this story yields no more information on this story, though, leading many to believe that it’s just some sort of image trickery or hoax. The origins of the photo and when they first surfaced are unclear.

3. Are There Pyramids On The Dark Side Of The Moon?


What exactly is lurking up there on the dark side of the moon? If you believe the moon skeptics, there’s a whole lot more than NASA ever let on, and this photo proves it. Taken by Apollo 17 during the last flight to the moon, this photo was listed as blank in the photographic index. While it definitely is washed out by exposure and noise problems, there does seem to be a formation, not unlike a mountain or a pyramid. Some believe that there are great pyramids, as well as castles on the moon and that NASA has been covering it up all along, but that this photo slipped through the cracks and reveals the truth to what they’ve known all along.

2. Goddard’s Squadron Photograph Of Freddy Jackson


In 1919, Freddy Jackson was accidentally killed by an airplane propeller while working as an air mechanic in the squadron of Sir Victor Goddard. Two days later, the squadron took a photo together – but when Goddard had it developed, he noticed something, the impossible – Freddy Jackson was in the photo. When he showed it to his crew, the men agreed that it was indeed, Jackson, despite the fact that he had died two days prior to the photo being taken, and that the group photo was held on the same day as Jackson’s funeral. It is believed that Jackson’s spirit was unaware of his death and showed up to have his picture taken as scheduled.

1. The Mysterious Death Of Elisa Lam

Elisa Lam was a 21 year old student staying at the Hotel Cecil in Los Angeles, when she went missing in January 2013. Her body was found contaminating the water two weeks later in the hotel’s water tank by the maintenance man. Lam reportedly suffered from bipolar disorder. At first glance, this story could be chalked up to a freak accident. However, there are many very notable and extremely strange coincidences surrounding her death.

The first bit of evidence is the bizarre video, and last known sighting of Lam. Getting onto an elevator, Lam proceeds to push numerous floor buttons but the elevator doors do not close. Then she begins to seem as though she is hiding in the corner from something passing by, but nothing shows on the video. Then she gets out of the elevator, looks around erratically, back into the elevator again and back out – all while the doors have never budged. Minutes go by, as her strange behavior continues and after Lam vanishes from sight, the elevator doors close, re-open, close again, and proceed to the next floor.

Those who don’t believe her death was an accident are also very quick to point out that two serial killers have stayed in the Cecil hotel, where there has also been a murder on premises and three reported suicides, making this a “murder hotel.” Other strange coincidences include a test for a tuberculosis outbreak that had occurred a few blocks from the hotel, which was called the LAM-ELISA. No one has been able to explain how Lam was able to get onto the roof, which was barricaded at the time. And then there’s the fact that someone updated her blog, six months after her death.

Needless to say, Hollywood snatched this story up immediately and announced early 2014, that a film based on Lam’s most mysterious death would be released in 2015.

Define a ‘Police State’ in any Country


Police state

A police state is a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic, and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.

The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state. Robert von Mohl, who first introduced the rule of law to German jurisprudence, contrasted the Rechtsstaat (“legal” or “constitutional” state) with the aristocratic Polizeistaat (“police state”).

I am doing this blog because I had several people ask me “What is a Police State” Yeah they were all American People 😦 Wasting my time typing, so here is “Police State” in Video and Images
