Welcome to my personal experience with Fibromyalgia
I have 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 because I was afraid something horrible would happen and 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 fibro. It was also an agonizing and frustrating process. At first I let the doctors treat me, nothing the doctors did, said or prescribed worked. 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 working for me the way I wanted it to I stopped taking the pain killers they once prescribed me. Once I found out what was in those pills I decided I did not want to chance being on an organ transplant list. 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. Make friends along the way that can help all of us understand how to live the life we always wanted to while Fibro comes along for the ride rather than Fibro ruling our bodies and 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
