THE STORY:

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in March of 2007. After being to several doctors and specialists. Having tons of blood work which would always come back with something else wrong. But the worse part was the pain. I had been in a car accident a year earlier and I also have Epilepsy. I suffered lots of seizures form the trauma of the accident they say and also ruined my back forever. But that's another story. After finally being diagnosed with Fibro they tried all kinds of meds to make me comfortable. They would work for awhile but then the flares would just start getting worse. I became bedridden , with constant debilitating pain that my whole body hurt. I would lay in my bed and cry and pray for it to go away. I tried everything. The natural way, the vitamin way. Nothing was going to stop this pain. And the chronic fatigue kicked in. Then came the depression. I found myself staring at the four walls in my room and my life passing me by. My children would see there mother in bed and there was nothing they could do for me as much as they tried. My husband thank god for him. He has been by my side through worst of worsts. And for that I am so grateful . He would sometimes leave work just to be with on my really extreme flare up days. Fibromyalgia is not just chronic pain and stiffness. There is so much more that comes with it. Chronic fatigue, insomnia. ( I can go 2 days no sleep). Irritable bowel syndrome, muscle spasms,brain fog just to name a few. This past New Years Resolution I promised myself that I was not going to let this disease win. I was always a fighter and I'm not going to stop now!! I try to get out of bed everyday no matter how much it hurts. And I will continue to do more one day at time. I am Valerie and I am a Fibromyalgia Warrior!! So today I ask you my friends to help me and so many others fight this disease and find a cure for Fibromyalgia!! Thanks, Valerie
