It was in 2010, I returned from a Doctor's visit, my son and I had a conversation.
How was the Doctors?
Did they figure out how to help
No baby, they didn't
Are they going to figure it out?
I don't know
Didn't they go to school for this?
Yes they did, but sometimes they just don't
Can't we figure it out?
If they can't, cant we try to figure it out and get you better
Yes we can
Ok, lets do that
and off he walked to watch a movie with his younger sister. It was so simple to a child. Why not make it simple again, this conversation changed my attitude, my perception, and how I handle what life presented me.
I was a single mother of two children, 30 years old, and living with Fibromyalgia that had consumed my life in every aspect. I was diagnosed in 2005, had tried everything that the Doctors had suggested, and nothing would touch the pain. If it had not been for my son, and later my daughter I would still be surviving instead of living. Through changes in my life, being true to myself, and focusing on what was truly important,I saw an increase, and then a decrease in pain, and soon I started waking up daily without pain....I had forgotten and rejoiced in it.
In November of 2010 I had my final flare up (the ones where a breeze makes you scream in agony), and since have lived pain and drug free.
I enjoy my life, my children, and live to the fullest. I found the changes that could last for life, changes, adjustments that allowed me to no longer be defined by Fibro.
My path has led me to helping others who are currently affected by Fibromyalgia, including individuals who are part of the support system. Assisting in the support of finding a path that works for you, the life you have, and want. I work with those who are ready to be honest, truthful and willing to go through an increase of pain for long term results, instead of an immediate solution
You cannot heal in others what you have not healed in yourself.
Be Truly Honest With Yourself.
When looking at Fibromyalgia, the diagnosis, the treatments, the daily life, all aspects we seem to forget to look at the most important person, ourselves.
We look for the cause of Fibromyalgia, a car accident, a surgery, a traumatic event. We look for a treatment that will offer an assistance, medicinal, alternative, therapies. When time passes we look for something to blame, direct our angry in not having any relief and only seem to have the symptoms become more debilitating, the Doctors, our family who does not help or understand, society for not providing the support, the validation for the syndrome. Ourselves, you, is not looked at.
Responsibility for your healing lays within your hands. Until you are ready to take control, truly look at yourself, you will not find full success with anything that is offered to you.
