I Inherited Fibromyalgia from my Mother, by Mayerlin Prado Ruiz
Mayerlin Prado Ruiz

My name is Mayerlin Prado Ruiz. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 6 months ago, but I have always had it, I inherited it from my mother. It has been very difficult for me; I am only 25 years old and most of the time I am not in the mood for anything. Many times, I cannot get up due to the pain 😖, but I must, to try lead a normal life for my 7-year-old son. I don’t sleep at night and when I do, I spend the night having nightmares.

When I was diagnosed, I cried a lot. Now I try to handle it better, but my desire is not the same. Although I want to do many things, I cannot due to the pain. I only feel well when I take painkillers.

In spite of all this, I still try to smile at life.


Soy Mayerlin prado: me diagnosticaron hace 6 meses fibromyalgia pero lo he padecido desde siempre, lo heredé de mi madre. Ha sido muy difícil para mi, tengo solo 25 años y la moyoria del tiempo no tengo ánimo de nada, muchos veces no me puedo levantar de dolor 😖 pero tengo que hacerlo igualmente para hacer vida normal por mi hijo de tan solo 7 años, no duermo por las noches y cuando lo hago paso la noche teniendo pesadillas, cuando me diagnosticaron lloré muchísimo. Ahora ya trato de llevarlo mucho mejor, pero mis ganas no son las mismas, aunque quiera hacer muchas cosas no puedo, el dolor puede conmigo solo cuando tengo el efecto del analgésico me siento bien. Pero aún así trato de sonreírle a la vida
