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.
