I suffered from symptoms that went undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years. After years of suffering and searching for answers, I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia along with other associated conditions. With support from others, trial and error and a lot of prayer and faith in God, I was able to create a new life plan. This plan is a well-rounded, holistic plan that brought changes to almost every area of my life. With these changes, I feel better and live a more active and joyous life. My Fibromyalgia journey has blessed me with many new friends with their own Fibromyalgia journey and has strengthened my faith and trust in Christ. I am not cured, but have found a way to lead a balanced and blessed life filled with hope. I still need the support of family, friends and fellow Fibromyalgians for encouragement and advice, but have hope for what each new day will bring. I pray that every Fibromyalgian finds the support and encouragement they need to create their new life plan, a life filled with blessing and hope.

Fibromyalgia: Living a Life of Blessing and Hope

Buy at Amazon

Imagine living in a pain beyond description, unable to do the simplest tasks that you have been doing your entire life, unable to sleep, and dealing with sensory overload (every noise is to loud, light to bright and smell to strong). All this with people telling you that you’re fine, it’s all in your head, just suck it up and move on. Imagine how you would cope with the pain and other symptoms with no support from friends, family or the medical community. How would you move forward? How would you live your life each day?

This is what many diagnosed with Fibromyalgia experience every day. Fibromyalgia takes a toll physically, emotionally and relationally. Millions of people have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia; these Fibromyalgians must navigate the pain and myriad of other symptoms often with little support. No Fibromyalgian should feel like they are in this alone, there are millions of us and we can provide each other with support, encouragement and advice. Through each other and with the help of Christ, we can all make our way through the dark tunnel of pain into a new life of blessing and hope.

Within these pages you will find:

  • Basic information and details about Fibromyalgia
  • Recent research and advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of Fibromyalgia
  • Stories (mine and others) of those who have navigated the journey and found a life of blessing and hope after the diagnosis
  • Action steps (treatment options) to take to create a new life plan that will lead you to a life of blessing and hope
  • Tips on what fellow Fibromyalgians have found useful in their journey
  • Links to educational and support resources

If you have Fibromyalgia, you are not alone. Others share your experiences and there are many places to find support and encouragement. Many have found a different but better life on the other side of the diagnosis.

If you are the family or friend of a Fibromyalgian, this is an opportunity to understand what they are experiencing and how you can support them and provide encouragement.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. – Romans 15:13
