ME feeling beautiful!

Saturday, January 24, 2009

A new me now exists!
Over the winter break, I read the book "YOU Being Beautiful." I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to look, feel and be beautiful. I may not be a beauty contestant, but this book has changed me. Spark has already helped me fight back against the fibromyalgia that I have battled mearly all of my life, but in the last few weeks, my health has recieved another jump in the right direction.
At this time last year, I was at the worst point in my spiral into the trap of fibro. I was over 200 lbs. I had a hard time walking around the high school campus where I worked. My neck, ears and jaws were swollen. High pitched noises drove me crazy. I got dizzy easily. No amount of sleep eased my pain or gave me any feeling of rest. I was exhausted. I was becoming trapped with in the walls of my fibromyalgia inflicted body. I was beginning to think that I needed to apply for disability.
I am so glad that I didn't give in! The last year has been an incredible transformation. Now, thanks to Dr. Roisen and Dr. Oz, I have found more relief! Within the pages of their book, they included information to help people with IBS, pain issues, fibromyalgia, TMJ and other health issues that have riddle my body. Within the information was a website: www.vitality101.com . This site has more information on fibromyalgia. I have not finished following all of the advice that I have received. While I am not cured, I do think that I am on the road to recovery.

    What an amazing story! I firmly believe we really need to listen to our bodies more carefully. What we put into them surely affects how well they will function. Why, we certainly wouldn't put junk into the gas tank of our cars, would we? We KNOW it would wreck them! I guess there are a few people like me who are slow to learn.......
    Congrats on all you've accomplished!
