About Us

Linda and HubbyWelcome to MySquirrelBait.com.  You might be wondering where I came up with this name.  Well, it’s been my nickname for most of our married life.  My husband says I’m his favorite nut and he bought my cell phone for me because he’s afraid the squirrels will bury me.

My husband, Ron, and I have been up and down the roads of Chron’s disease and fibromyalgia.  I’ve been the patient in both cases and he’s been my main support.  I decided that after having surgery for the Chron’s in 1981 and being diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1996 that I should share what I have learned about dealing with these diseases.

The medications I take or have taken, the herbs, vitamins, minerals I use, exercise do or don’t do and diet have all played a part in bringing me where I am today. Alternative solutions like acupuncture and massage have been tried with varying results.

The articles I write will have a lot of facts and, hopefully, useful information; but, they will also have some of my own experiences interlaced in them. Like squirrels find nuts of various kind and sizes you will find articles of different kinds and sizes on this website.  We hope that one of these “nuts” will taste good to you. If so please share them with people you know. If you have questions or wish to make a comment use the links on the website.

Thank you for visiting MySquirrelBait.com and I hope your visit has been both educational and entertaining.
