Fibromyalgia has changed my life drastically. I used to be very physically active and worked as a nurse before all this happened, eventually I could no longer work 12 hour shifts and the pain was so bad in the beginning i stoped doing a lot of things I enjoyed. My marriage changed and got to the point where we started talking about divorce. We started marriage counseling and I did individual counseling. Somewhere in all of this I got pregnant and had a beautiful daughter that’s the light of my life!! I finally found a Doctor that actually took the time to help find some treatment options. I still have symptoms from time to time.but I can manage the symptoms I experience much better.
