Once a month I am going to be sharing other fibromyalgia sufferers fibromyalgia stories. I’m doing this so my readers can read about other people’s experiences , relate to others and to not feel alone. Every person with fibro has a different story. Also they will have different symptoms and coping strategies. I hope you all find it helpful hearing other fibromyalgia sufferers stories and may find their stories encouraging.              

This is britney’s story, a turley strong and inspirational woman:                                       

So, when I was 17 (now 28), I was in four car accidents. they thought my back was broken so during the last accident, I woke up in an ambulance completely strapped down. Turns out that was the first time I’d ever ruptured a disk. After three miscarriages, two ectopic pregnancies and two blood transfusions I was finally able to have a child. in 2015, I had my first back very invasive back surgery. Then again after and another surgery in July of last year.

I feel like between all this and my fibro flare. ups, I can barely move some days. Honestly, I never thought I’d ever volunteer for pain meds, but between my kids, my home life, school, and work, I had to. I graduated three weeks ago and finally am going to start the homeopathic approach. I use cannabis daily now and lots of CBD rubs to ease the pain. I have neuropathy in my legs and suffer from severe migraines. every day is a struggle but my kids and my husband help me to keep my head high, and stay focused on my goals in life.                              

 Thankyou to Britney for sharing her story.

  1. Thanks for sharing Britney’s story. My hearts goes out to the young women who deal with Fibro while trying to raise families and live life. It is a struggle for us all, but just seems more heartbreaking when Fibro steals away time intended to be shared with children.

    Congratulations on your graduation, Britney – that is a major accomplishment without dealing with a chronic illness. You have a beautiful family. Continued success to you! 😉

  2. Thank you all. It’s been so rough (as I know y’all know), but I’m trying my hardest to keep fighting. I look forward to reading your stories, too! 💚

  3. Having been a pain sufferer since 1980 & finally, formally diagnosed with FM & CFS in 2006 (after nerve and facet joint blocks on my spine). Had lumbar spinal surgery in 2008 & 2015, so let me say living with chronic pain (exhaustion, IBS, MCS) and severe headaches is not easy. One of the most important things is to slow down, get plenty of rest, concentrate on what you CAN do, not on what you can’t.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog & following – I hope you enjoy my Photography.
