After all that busy Christmas rush I know you are feeling the Fibromyalgia pain now sister. I am inspired to help you and to let you know there is someone who truly understands where you are coming from. How can you possibly understand how much pain someone is enduring unless you have actually experienced it? I find it hard to believe some days myself how “IT????” can just beat me up like I was on the receiving end of a baseball bat. I say to myself sometimes, how can I possibly have this much pain? It can be so intense and so severe that you are sure there has to be something seriously wrong. That hot, burning, nagging pain that makes you feel like you could throw up. What is even worse is a Dr looking over his glasses at you saying, “You just need to exercise!” Uggggg!! How frustrating and humiliating! I have exercised my whole life, give me a break!

I eat well and exercise so my frustration comes from the fact that most people and Doctors judge you by the way you look, those who believe if you look fine then you are healthy! Or on the other end, you are judged as being lazy and a hypochondriac. Have we had a hard time being recognized because it is a male dominated world of Doctors who think we are being lazy bitches? Whiny women? Hmmm. Is that why it took so long to even be acknowledged as being real? I am not weak, whiny, lazy or a hypochondriac. I am just looking for the root cause of the pain to cure it. I am truly sorry if you have had to endure any of these experiences, I understand the trauma it has caused you.

This is why I created this website, for you, the Fibromyalgia women who have been through hell with this extremely painful condition that you can’t see. I am empathetic to you for all you have been through, all you have endured, and for those of you who have been scoffed at, belittled, disbelieved, and misunderstood.  I hear you sister and I am here to help you!

The holidays can be very stressful and physically, mentally and emotionally draining for the average person but this can mean an intense flare for Fibromyalgia sufferers. Christmas over-indulgence can lead to intestinal upset and all kinds of digestive problems to boot. I have a lot of food allergies and it is really hard to say no to everything around Christmas time and I pay for it! Find your hidden food allergies, your body will thank you for it.

The best post Christmas gift you can give yourself is to take some time out for you! Take an Epsom salts bath, it will help soak away a lot of pain so you can better deal with whatever pain is left. I grow fresh herbs in my garden in the summer, dry them and make herbal bath bags. The herbs help with a lot of pain and help replenish as well as detoxify your body depending on what combination you brew. You can also use aromatherapy and a relaxation tape or your favorite music while you are soaking your painful body, you can be relaxing your stressed mind as well. You owe it to yourself!
