The dictionary defines shadowboxing as a form of exercise used for training in combat sports. In psychology “shadowboxing” is a process one uses to overcome a negative self-image so success can be achieved. In the book I co-wrote, The ShadowBoxers, Fighting Fibromyalgia, Your Personal Journal, we define Shadow Boxers as individuals who are fighting against a disease they can not see. We fight to maintain health in the body, mind, and soul.
We, the chronically ill, are the modern-day Shadow Boxers.
If you are thinking about purchasing this interactive journal, it doesn’t matter where you are in your disease, this journal will help you make sense of what is happing. If someone you love has fibromyalgia, this book will explain what they are going through. I am thrilled to list a few of the 5-star reviews that were received from Amazon customers who have purchased this book…
- “Love this book! It has helped me understand what is going on and how to work through it.”
- “I like this book is a journal with lots of blank pages to let me write or draw what I feel. There are definitions that are easy to understand, and the book gives you suggestions as to what you could do to live a better life with fibromyalgia. I love the prompts. I liked reading all the stories. I am even starting to write my own story!”
- “The Shadow Boxers is an insightful and informative book by two women who suffer from fibromyalgia and other conditions. This book describes their journies from onset, to diagnosis to the present. The authors give the reader and the fibromyalgia warriors ideas on coping with the chronic disease and suggest keeping a journal about day to day living. There are blank pages and ideas on how to start. If you are a family member or friend of someone suffering from fibromyalgia this book will help you understand this disease and hopefully give support.”
- “I like that the book explains a fibromyalgia toolbox. It has Seven Areas of Positive Change and Six Healthy Habits to Develop for Fibromyalgia Syndrome.”
I thank the above for their great reviews, and there are more on Amazon! So generous and kind with your comments. Receiving, then maintaining 5 out of 5 stars since July of 2017 is very humbling. It is not only humbling, it feels like I have received a gift I had dreamed of but never thought it would come true.
May is National Fibromyalgia Awareness Month.
