Gentle Hugs

Gentle Hugs is a phrase expressing that when a person has a disease like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Fibromyalgia, sometimes one can be in so much pain that even a hug hurts. I no longer feel that way, but I do remember a time when this certainly did apply. It’s hard for me to even imagine it now, strange enough…….and my story is quite unique. This is part of why I started this blog. But I mainly began this blog to open up discussion and to be one of the many people on the Internet who inspires.

  1. Am just wondering if you are okay I really like reading your website and noticed you haven’t changed or added since 2012 I miss it

  2. This page definitely has all of the information I
    needed about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  3. Thank you for asking, he is doing remarkably well. It is 10 days since surgery and according to the assessment team prior to leaving the hosp and his visiting nurse we are on the right track – most incredible of all is that he has no pain. I’m looking forward to checking with Biomedic Labs in a few weeks after drs. visits to see what supplements might be helpful, and again I thank you for this website and all of the valuable information not just for RA but for so many other ailments and illnesses.
    The information re: sb 510 actually came from a naturopathic dr. here in Pittsburgh, Dr. James Winer, who broadcasts radio programs a few times a week. His program is always interesting and informative. Glad you Voted!
    Hugs to you

  4. Hi Joanie!

    Sorry to just now get back to you and so sorry to hear about your other half’s triple-bypass surgery! How did it go? I went to the link and voted. Thank you SO much for posting that! I need to write a blog on it, so it gets more attention. I will do that soon, if it’s not too late!
    many thanks and hugs,

  5. Hi Sarah-
    Have been out of circulation for awhile, my other half has recently had a triple-bypass- to say the least life has been hectic. Am staying firm on ldn, supplements and enzymes. Wanted to pass along some info for all of us who have come to depend on making our own choices for our health Senate Bill 510. Please go to and vote – The FDA among other things is attempting to deny our access to supplements. According to the website it has already passed the house. Keep up the Good Work Sarah – This is a very informative website. Joan

  6. Hi Maria,

    Somehow I missed this comment from you….I think I probably thought I had read it! I realize now that you need some info on Gallstones. I will DEFINITELY write up a post about Gallstones as soon as I can. Please forgive me for not getting back to you sooner! I hope you do figure out an alternative choice for you that works.
    your friend,

  7. I went to docs yesterday and came out so frustrated,she believes that the pain I am getting is Gerd which me know and I have Gall stones.After a long talk she would not give me any stronger pain relieve,and said that if I have the Gall bladder removed there is no gauruntee the it will make me better.
    She did not say (YOU ARE LOOKING SICK) or(you are depressed because of the pain from the Fibro as well as everything else giving the fact that I cryed,which I don,t do normally) but all she said was you have put on wieght in your face.So obserfent don,t you think lol.If you have any info about gall stones can you please let me know.I am now goin to start to think about natrual than medical.Can,t take much more of this.

  8. Thank you so much for all your hard work in finding out about Gabapentin for me.You are such a blessing and I hope that you keep goin.God Bless Maria.
