It’s #Fibromyalgia awareness month!
It’s been a little over 6 years since the first symptoms started. It’s been a hell of journey trying to find what works and what doesn’t. I did trial and error with medications for years until we ran out of options. I never stopped looking up different things that could help me. Today I use a combination of herbal supplements, cannabis oil & gummies. I’m grateful my drs have been helpful and understanding. Although I still have bad days(mainly due to weather changes & my periods) the bad days are not as bad as they used to be. For that I am grateful! We are still working on the correct dosage for the oil & gummies but since starting it last November I’ve seen a major improvement. A good diet helps as well. I’ve switched to mainly plant based diet. I won’t say vegan because occasionally I have chicken. After years of doing various forms of therapy to help with my mental health issues i switched to using meditation and breath work in the mornings to help manage those pesky racing thoughts. Which isn’t easy and has taken many months of practice(started working with a teacher in December 2021) I still have days I struggle but I feel I’m better equipped to deal with it. #fibromyalgiaawareness #IBS #Migraines #Anxiety #Depression #SuicideAwareness #PTSD #ChronicIllness #InvisibleIllness
