Everyday I wake up in pain. The pain spreads throughout my body and at times I feel like a voodoo doll. I have a medical team of over 20 doctors/ specialists who I see regularly. I suffer extreme exhaustion, sometimes only 30 minutes of being awake. Most days I am numb which makes my feelings unreliable and has me learning things in ways people don't understand. I get moody, not because I want too but because the stress builds up and starts causing major flares. At times I ha...ve delayed reactions to events...and other times I suffer from fibro fog (like short term memory). I have a sensitivity to light, which in the day time it hurts to be outside, and at dawn or dusk I cannot drive because I have vision problems with lighting.
I suffer from #Fibromyalgia and #Endometriosis. Some days these illnesses slow me down but I will never let them interfere with my dreams. I want to be an inspiration to those suffering from chronic illnesses and have them know that they are not their illness but that it's only a small part of them.
