My fibromyalgia story
I managed to keep up for years until I finally crashed and got a diagnosis: fibromyalgia.
It was a great day, I finally got an expert to confirm there was a name for what I had, I was right! I hadn’t been exaggerating all those years. Great, now let’s get to the cure and the solution part… But there was no cure, there was the option to take meds or not, accept it and get on with my life.
Even in my exhausted state, I couldn’t believe that this was it. But researching the incurable when you’re hardly functioning is no picnic.
And diagnosis or not, life went on, food needed to be put on the table, laundry wasn’t doing itself, people were still expecting me to be part of life, show up to family and social events with hair and make-up done and in a trendy package. They would complain that I wasn’t excited and energetic enough, that I should just go out for a long walk or ride my bike for a couple of hours, get a good night’s sleep and I would be all better. I tried explaining to friends and family what was going on inside me and like many of you, finally got fed up with repeating the same thing over and over to people who just don’t get it. The way you look on the outside has nothing to do with the inside. I kept cancelling appointments as I was hurting and exhausted and was dreading the flare up that would come after going there.
Then towards the end of yet another long winter spent in excruciating pain and needing 3 hours just to get up and have breakfast, worse off then ever, I hit the lowest of the lowest, the turning point. Exhausted to the core and fed up with being sick and tired, I could not see myself go through another winter like that. Or 10 winters. Omg! I decided that this was unacceptable, this was not what I had signed up for.
No more! I decided that I wasn’t going to let anything or anyone keep me from getting my health back anymore! I began to look for other and better answers, I researched, took trainings and step by step through trial and error started reclaiming my health, energy, body, confidence, in short, my life.
I found a way to heal myself, reduce my fibromyalgia symptoms and I developed the Fibro Success Habits.
Now I’m on a mission to help women worldwide wake up to their symptoms sooner, stop looking for a magic pill and instead make a brave decision to go for a different future. I help them go through the healing journey faster so they can find hope, happiness, health and the life they deserve.
