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.
