What I Know About Fibro is not your typical book about Fibromyalgia and how to live with it. It is the story of one woman’s journey to heal her life.
I lay on the couch, some twenty years ago, feeling that my life was over, and in many ways, it was. I could no longer work. I couldn’t even do the basics of taking care of my house or my children. There was no specific moment when I turned that around.
Slowly I began to read, to learn, to discover what this Fibromyalgia even was. Somewhere along the way I began to do the things I could. Even if that was walking to the end of my driveway and back. More importantly, I began searching out the things in my life that I could change. Stress had me by the throat and I needed to find better, different, ways of managing it. It took me four years to get to the point where the couch was no longer my best friend.
I learned to listen to my body, to sink deep within and discover what was at the heart of my pain. The pain I had carried into and throughout adulthood. It was crying out for me to notice. The pain in my body was mirroring the pain in my soul.
I don’t, for one minute, think that I have the cure for Fibromyalgia. I only have my own story to share. I share it, in complete humility, in the hope that something in this little book will set you on your journey to find out what works for you.
By sharing how I came to be flare-up free, with a touch of poetry and a “So What?’ at the end of each chapter, I’m offering you, simply, the opportunity to engage in your own journey.
