Wow, where do I even begin? A lot of things happened here at OMA&P! last week. I admit that today I am still in recovery mode from all the excitement.
If you missed any of my posts regarding the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA), I've created a bit.ly bundle that groups all the posts together into one link for easier access: http://bit.ly/gOZBIZ
What you might have missed over the weekend is the publication of Lynne Matallana's official statement over at the FibroHaven blog. It also was sent out as an email with the subject line NFA President's Message from the address firstname.lastname@example.org. I just received my copy Sunday at 4 am.
What I haven't shared with you yet is that I was scheduled to interview Lynne last Thursday, March 10th. I was contacted by a PR consultant working with her last Tuesday after my post What Ever Happened to the National Fibromyalgia Association? was published and apparently shared and discussed at a NFA Board meeting that evening. Unfortunately, that telephone interview was canceled by Lynne one hour before our scheduled meeting time. As I write this post, I am still waiting to hear back from Lynne's PR consultant who promised that the interview would be rescheduled.
Personally, I want to take a couple of days to digest the events of last week and consider Lynne's statement. But that doesn't mean I haven't been wondering what your opinions are about her statement. So this week I want to know: What do you think of the NFA now?
You have my word that I will publish every comment I get on this topic. For the comment shy, I want to make you aware that you can comment anonymously on my blog (which has been the case for a while now.) I am hoping to understand through your comments whether you are satisfied with the statement that has been released or if you feel more needs to be said.
In addition to commenting here, you can also share your thoughts over on the Oh My Aches and Pains! Facebook page or with me on Twitter where I am @SelenaMKI.
