So yesterday I sent tidying up my folders files on my computer and I got red of several duplicate files and folders and everything is looking neater. I’m so happy I decided to go through and do a clean up.
So now the story I have chosen to do research for is called Veiled Affliction that follows my story of having multiple allergies including food allergies, asthma, which led to seeing a nutritionist, which led to the discovery of gluten intolerance. I was off gluten 9 months before I got pregnant with my first child and I had a hard labor with her. To get help with the baby, I moved up to Maine temporarily to get help from my husband’s parents and I saw an allergist who said I wasn’t allergic to anything and all the foods I was tested positive too was probably wrong. He also said I didn’t have asthma. That I was just breathing wrong. So I went back to eating gluten, not taking any allergy or asthma medication because I was told I no longer needed them.
But my health started to get worse. I started having body wide pain and went through several tests to figure out what might be causing it. I was diagnosed in 2010 as having fibromyalgia. I read the book Fatigue to Fantastic and ordered many supplements that were said to help me feel better. Nothing worked.
In 2011 My husband, my daughter, and I all moved to Maine as my husband got a new job there and we moved in with his parents. I started seeing a doctor who prescribed cymbalta for the pain. It helped some. For the next several years I was on Cymbalta and then lyrica, but I still struggled with a lot of pain, fatigue, headaches, low mood, trouble sleeping.
In 2019, something happened that I never would have imagined that would erase my fibromyalgia pain. I can’t tell you here, but I will reveal what happened in my upcoming book Veiled Affliction: My Journey to Better Health. The book is currently in it’s research phases. I’ll keep you posted.
