Fibromyalgia and the MessageJohn Collins4/30/2012 9:06:00 PMRecently discussing the psychological effects on ones psych after enduring years of self-condemnation for the "you sin because you do not believe" doctrine, I have found something really strange.
There are a growing number of people in the MSG with fibromyalgia. I know that fibromyalgia is not limited to people in the MSG, but there seems to be an incredible number of people dealing with it in the MSG compared to other churches who do not practice the legalistic doctrines.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
There are many ways that are determined to be onset factors, but the one that would apply is emotional trauma.
Since we have a few now that have come forward after having left the legalism, I'm wondering if anybody had this problem and how they are doing now?
