About two years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I was encouraged to develop a program of meditation, pain visualisation, supplements and dietary modifications. When I was diagnosed I was in so much pain and also experiencing Chronic Fatigue. I was shuffling around like someone in the 80s rather than in their 50s.

Well…. I thought I would let you know that recently I successfully passed my bronze medal in ballroom and latin dancing.

I can’t get over that I have been able to do this. I do still have the occassional day when I get a lot of pain or feel exhausted but I can know manage the condition and have learnt to listen to what my body is telling me, which is allowing me to get on with life and my interests again.
