Devin Starlanyl specializes in education in the field of fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain. She is the past director of the Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain Institute and serves as facilitator for the FMS and CMP support group at a local hospital. A consultant and clinical researcher who assists FMS/CMP patients through FIBROM-L listserv, an Internet support group, Devin Starlanyl also maintains a comprehensive Web site about FMS and CMP (http: //www.sover.net/ devstar). She is the coauthor of the first edition of Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome and author of The Fibromyalgia Advocate, and as someone with both conditions, writes as one who understands "from the inside." Mary Ellen Copeland, M.S., M.A., is coauthor of the first edition of Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome and also knows firsthand the consequences of FMS/CMP. A distinguished teacher, writer, and lecturer, Ms. Copeland is the author of Healing the Trauma of Abuse, The Depression Workbook, Living Without Depression and Manic Depression, The Worry Control Workbook, The Loneliness Workbook, and Winning Against Relapse. Her audiotape, Living with Depression and Manic Depression, and her videotape, Coping with Depression, are widely used by therapists and depression clinics.
"They've done it again! This second edition of the Survival Manual is a gold mine of practical advice and scholarly information put into everyday language. This book gives a great many options for all aspects of FMS/CMP and its message is one of hope. An owner's manual for you, and one that should be required reading for all of your health care providers, this is not a book to be read and crossed off of your list, but a resource to avail yourself of over and over again. The tools are here. Use it yourself and have those close to you read it also." --Richard Finn, Director, Academy for Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy, coauthor, Myofascial Pain Syndrome: Manual Trigger Point & S-EMG Therapies "In a 1997 book review, I extolled the extraordinary features of the first edition of Starlanyl and Copeland's Survival Manual. As caregivers to FMS/MPS patients and sufferers themselves, their advice in the book was superbly tuned to readers' needs. Now, in this second edition, Starlanyl and Copeland have outshone themselves. Having updated the Survival Manual and enhanced its laudable features, they have made an already valuable book almost priceless." --Dr. John C. Lowe, Director of Research, Fibromyalgia Research Foundation, Board Certified, American Academy of Pain Management "Devin Starlanyl and her work are incredible resources to the fibromyalgic community. She has tirelessly researched her subject and freely and lovingly shared it with those who have suffered pain and disability." --Dr. Craig N. Anderson, D.C., past president of the Vermont Chiropractic Association "Devin Starlanyl has a remarkable determination to help relieve mankind of unnecessary suffering. The guidance in this book an serve both practitioners who have yet to understand the nature of their own musculoskeletal aches and pains, and patients who are unable to find a practitioner adequately skilled in this neglected subject. The message of this book is a voice crying out in a wilderness of neglect." --David G. Simons, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine at Emory University
