Facing My Fibromyalgia

I have Fibromyalgia.

It is a word I associated with people
who complain a lot about their pain,
 but now, I am one of those people.

For anyone who may not know much about it, here are a few characteristics:

Chronic muscle pain or spasms, tightness, extreme fatigue, with decreased energy.  It also has the affects of causing insomnia and tiredness during the day. It can also cause stiffness, migraines, and/or a brain "fog." It can also cause abdominal issues, including alternating bowel problems. People with Fibromyalgia are likely to be sensitive to odors, (cat box*) noises, (yelling*) foods, (rotten chicken bones*) are common. My anxiety and depression are included along with pain or numbness.

YOU take medication for Fibromyalgia-- but after a while you know you are covering up the symptoms not really helping you that much. When your body is screaming "do something" you have to listen.

It was part social, part informational, and a "just say no" to certain foods and everyone's first love--

Much to my surprise, the leader, Leah McCullough the "Fibro Lady" was anti-certain vegetables- tomatoes, green peppers, cabbage, and egg plant. SO you can be anti-vegetables? I have a lot to learn.
Time to detox, get on Probiotics, and collect all my broken pieces off the ground.
