I am now 56 years old. I realize I lived with chronic pain and fatigue for over 15 years. In 2008 I finally found a new physician that worked with me to get a diagnosis and treatment. I was living with such pain and fatigue I could barely manage to get out of bed. I had two teenagers and was watching them through my bedroom doorway. With my eldest graduating I knew I had to find a way to still be in his my push in finding a doctor willing to work with me as a partner became my goal. Luckily, I found the one. and Now Live with these diseases with my newly retired husband. I take several medications and use magnesium oil rubbed on the knotted muscles or menthol patches. I try to lie the best life I can. I advocate for all pain warriors.
