It’s always fascinating to me to look into life’s mirror by way of meeting beautiful new souls who remind me how challenging things are when you are struggling daily to fight through the pain. For those just trying to make ends meet and somehow manage to feed yourself while being inundated by pain signals that don’t make any sense, the prospect of embarking on a life altering healing journey that takes time and no small amount of patience is daunting at best. Every Fibro warrior knows from experience that there will always be those out there who offer us ‘quick fixes’ and ‘miracle cures’ without ever really understanding the disease. Teachers, healers and fitness coaches who, for whatever reason, have come to believe that a fibro warrior can be taught/treated like all the other bodies that walk in the door. I think for the most part, it’s not really their fault. Certainly medicine (yes alternative too) has come to preach ‘one-size-fits-all’ solutions to ‘di-ease’ and ‘we’, those who need help to take our next step to health and wellness, buy into, and attach ourselves to this belief. We can go years, bouncing between doctors, specialists, and alternative healers, soaking up as much information as possible and trying every ‘treatment’ they suggest, in the hope that, by some miracle, this one will work.
