Melanie’s Fight like a Girl Story (Fibromyalgia)

Fibromyalgia Ribbon In August I will begin being treated by a liver specialist team and a transplant coordinator.

I have a very basic understanding of my fibromyalgia but the PBC is a journey that frightens me very much. You see, in June of 2009 my mom lost her battle with non-alcohol related cirrhosis. I personally have a first hand knowledge of how my journey can end without a transplant.

My days are a struggle but my sister and fiance try very hard to comfort me, even when they don’t understand what is actually going on.
I hope that someday I will be able to get past all the “why me’s” and anger. For now, I take it hour by hour. Hopefully someday my day by day will be wonderful.

Thank you all who took the time to read my story and thank you to the sister warriors that share their stories and words of hope and love!

God bless you all and continue to fight whatever your battle is!
