My fibromyalgia story

Close your eyes and imagine the following…

You wake up in the morning with pain all over your body. Your muscles are stiff and your hands feel tingly. You feel a possible migraine coming with muscles in your neck and back aching. Trying to open your eyes is a challenge, it feels like you haven’t slept for a week when in actual fact you were asleep for more than eight hours. It feels like your entire body is bruised, with even a simple touch feeling like a stabbing wound. You get up and don’t know what to wear – mostly due to the fact that tight-fitting clothes only makes you feel even more distressed. Trying to eat something in the morning is the worst. You have gained a few pounds and most foods just make the pain worse. Now get ready for the day ahead, put on a smile and do some work.

Welcome to the last six years of my life.
