Hi, I’m 46, soon to be 47 on July 31. I was battling massive pain throughout my body and saw many doctors in 2003 and 2004. Finally, I found out I have Fibromyalgia. I was taken off work in 2003 and filed for disability. I fought until I finally got a Lawyer in 2008. I won my case in 2009. Fighting this disease is hard but I do what I can.
In 2010, on April 25th, I had gastric bypass. Now in June 2011 I am down 160 lbs. From meds and just unable to get around, my weight had gotten up to 402. Wow, what a change! I still have Fibromyalgia but it’s easier to get around, when I can.
I just take one day at a time and pray every day that we will get cures for these diseases. We can go to the moon so what’s the deal. God Bless all and keep the faith!!!
FIGHT LIKE A GIRL!!! Just as it says..
