Fibro caused by Stress, by Gyna-Monica Herrera

Faces of Fibromyalgia Fibro caused by stress Gyna-Monica Herrera Fibro Ramblings

At the beginning of 2013, my marriage started to fall apart (my husband cheated), and I couldn’t put it behind me like I thought I could. I didn’t realize that the stress of that whole incident was going to cause my 1st fibro flare, which wouldn’t be diagnosed until November that year (2013).

My life did a whole 180°

I’m no longer working; my life is doctors’ appointments and pills. I loved my job, my patients made me smile, but my cognitive issues started, and I started having horrible migraines. My anxiety is always between a 5 and 8.

What works for me is meditation and documenting my triggers (I’m still learning).

Adjusting sucks but stay strong. YOU have fibro, fibro doesn’t have you.

  1. That’s interesting because that’s the same year the same thing happened in my marriage but my issues had already started. He said I didn’t pay enough attention to him but the whole time I was sick. My issues just snowballed from there


      1. I haven’t been officially diagnosed so, no, not at this time, but if they ever actually listen to me and do diagnose me, I’ll let you know. 😉 thank you for sharing the stories of others here.
