My past life:
I was happy and as carefree, a fun loving single girl always the life and the soul of the party. I had lots of energy and was always filling up my time with exciting things.
|May 2005 one of the last times I remember feeling 'normal'.|
I was prodded and poked so many different symptoms and nothing seemed to fit. The drs were puzzled and began to say it was in my head. I was in pain and hit rock bottom. Was it me? Was it in my head? Was I lazy? So many questions yet no answers came forward.
Eventually after some suggestions and many exhaustive tests, hospital stays and trips to the drs there came this word. It's Fibromyalgia they said.
My life now:
I am coming to terms with this condition called Fibromyalgia or Fibro as I refer to it. It does not define me as a person but it is a part of me. I am still me. I may have had to change and adapt to life with this debilitating condition but I am who I am.
|I still have my sense of humour the fibro hasn't robbed me of that!|
I am now Heather, 29, single mum of 2 children Lillie 7 and Evie 4. I enjoy holidays, watching films and documentaries and spend a lot of time on facebook! I enjoy seeing friends when I can, but most of all I enjoy being with my children. What little energy I do have I spend on my children being a mummy and having fun with them.
I just also happen to also be a person who also suffers with a disability this thing called Fibromyalgia.
I have this thing.... it's called Fibromyalgia!
