Fibromyalgia - @Its_me_lisa_marie

"Hey my name is Lisa. I’m 35 years old & was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia going on 6 years. I remember that day, walking out of the Dr office telling myself to breath as the tears just kept rolling down my face. After years of not feeling well, hundreds of Dr appts, X-rays, MRI’s, CAT scans, blood infusions & so many medications etc I finally got answers. Not the answers I was looking for but at least I could feel somewhat at ease knowing what was wrong. It’s nothing that they have found a cure for but I can learn to manage the symptoms. I had to quickly remind myself this isn’t me. I won’t let this define me as a person. But instead use it as positives I can & shine some light on invisible illnesses. Let it show me the qualities I didn’t even know I had. Strength, courage & bravery to name a few. I’m only human so of course I have bad days were I think to myself why me or feel useless, helpless, not worthy. But I have the BEST support system behind me to help me, pick me up when I fall, and to reassure me that everything is going to be okay. One day at a time; one foot in front of the other. My wife and my boys have been my rock through this all. Being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and dealing with all that comes with it has not been easy but with them by my side I know anything is possible." @Its_me_lisa_marie
