Welcome to my personal experience with Fibromyalgia
I’ve been living with Fibromyalgia since 2011. The first three years I suffered undiagnosed. It was agonizing and made worse by the fact that I did not know what was happening to me. I stopped doing things I loved. I was afraid something horrible would happen to me. With my husband deployed I was all our kids had.
After I was diagnosed I spent the next three years figuring out how to live with Fibromyalgia. It was an agonizing and frustrating process. At first I let the doctors treat me, nothing the doctors did, said or prescribed worked for me. Everything the doctors had me try masked the pain and helped with sleep but I was still to exhausted and constantly having Fibro Fog. Since I was still experiencing debilitating side effects of Fibro and feeling drugged, I decided to change somethings.
When I did not receive the recovery I wanted
When the doctors help was not getting me where I wanted to be with my Fibromyalgia, I stopped taking the pain killers they once prescribed me. Once I found out what was in those pills I stopped taking them. I decided I did not want to chance being on an organ transplant list or becoming addicted. Which then resulted in me self medicating. After a lot of trial and error I finally found a way to live comfortably and happily with my Fibromyalgia.
My goal for sharing my discoveries
I want to share my personal experience with Fibromyalgia- my goal is to help others navigate their way through this debilitating condition. Hopefully make friends along the way. While all of us help each other understand how to live the life we always wanted to live. Doing what we can to help Fibromyalgia take a back seat in our lives.
It is important to understand that Fibromyalgia effects everyone differently and that what worked for me may not work for you. But hopefully through sharing my discoveries you will be able to find something that helps you too.
