CFS/ME and every other unseen illness

I don’t usually like to post or even discuss any “woe is me” type of articles, but I watched this and some of the key statements in this video I related to.

I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in 1994 after the birth of my second child. When I finally got a diagnosis there was a sense of both relief and dread, because now I knew I wasn’t actually dying, even though it felt like it, but now I had a diagnosis of an illness that many people knew nothing about, or was referred to as the Yuppie Flu, or as my mother put it, “isn’t that the thing lazy people get”

Today I have been diagnosed with other illnesses as well and the puzzle of my health has been slowly fitting into place, there are some pieces missing but with my own intuition and Dr Google I, myself, alone, found, diagnosed and then went to the Doctor for confirmation and I will continue to do so until that last piece of the puzzle is found.

I have just come through the tail end of a very long and debilitating flare so I wanted to share my new diagnosis of Hyperadrenergic Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome

More later

With Love

I am Fibro

By Terri Been

Hi…My name is Fibromyalgia, and I’m an Invisible Chronic Illness. I am now velcroed to you for life. Others around you can’t see me or hear me, but YOUR body feels me. I can attack you anywhere and anyhow I please. I can cause severe pain or, if I’m in a good mood, I can just cause you to ache all over.

Remember when you and Energy ran around together and had fun? I took Energy from you, and gave you Exhaustion. Try to have fun now!

I also took Good Sleep from you and, in its place, gave you Brain Fog. I can make you tremble internally or make you feel cold or hot when everyone else feels normal.

Oh, yeah, I can make you feel anxious or depressed, too. If you have something planned, or are looking forward to a great day, I can take that away, too.

You didn’t ask for me. I chose you for various reasons: that virus you had that you never recovered from, or that car accident, or maybe it was the years of abuse and trauma. Well, anyway, I’m here to stay!

I hear you are going to see a doctor who can get rid of me. I’m rolling on the floor, laughing. Just try. You have to go to many, many doctors until you find one who can help you effectively. You will be put on pain pills, sleeping pills, energy pills, told you are suffering from anxiety or depression, given a TENs unit, get massaged, told if you just sleep and exercise properly I will go away, told to think positively, poked, prodded, and MOST OF ALL, not taken as seriously as you feel when you cry to the doctor how debilitating life is every day. Your family, friends, and coworkers will all listen to you until they just get tired of hearing about how I make you feel, and that I’m a debilitating disease. Some of them will say things like “Oh, you are just having a bad day” or “Well, remember, you can’t do the things you use to do 20 years ago: not hearing that you said 20DAYS ago. Some will start talking behind your back, while you slowly feel that you are losing your dignity trying to make them understand, especially when you are in the middle of a conversation with a “Normal” person and can’t remember what you were going to say next.

In closing, {I was hoping that I kept this part a secret}, but I guess you already found out…the ONLY place you will get any support and understanding in dealing with me is with other people with Fibromyalgia.

Thank you to my lovely friend Linda xx

Taking part in the 15 Question Interview Series.

I was asked by Rochelle Stone of Barefoot Basics if I would be interested in being interviewed for her 15 Part Interview Series. which can be found  HERE

If you are having trouble accessing that then I have reposted it here.

  1. Who?

 

Aurora T  –  The Path Beyond


2.     What?

 

I am an intuitive healer, medium, and metaphysical teacher. Spiritual Events Co-ordinator and Mum.


3. Where?

 

I live and work on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland, but my services take me all around the world and I use the internet to assist with this.

 

4.  What book changed your life?

 

I don’t think any one book has individually changed my life, but my dad being an avid spiritual adventurer passed on many books – the one that impacted me the most is entitled “Secrets about Life Every Woman Should Know…Ten Principles For Spiritual and Emotional Fulfilment”, by Barbara De Angelis. It is a very enlightening book which resonated well with me and I got a lot from it.

5.    Favourite travel destination?

 

The Greek Isles because I love the energetic flow of the colours from the buildings blending with the glorious colours of the ocean and the food and wine is amazing, along with the hospitality of the local people.

 

6.     Tell us a bit about you and your background

 

I’m a mother of two teenage daughters who was told that due to my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) I would never have children and who coped bringing them up as a single mother with Fibromyalgia (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), helping me to begin my Spiritual journey around 15 years ago in an effort to heal my body and connect with my inner spirit. I now work on bringing this awareness to others, drawing on my own experiences, understanding the pain my clients are in and also being aware of their own personal limitations, which is extremely important when working with people with chronic pain.

 

7.   What inspired you to start your own business?

 

I have always been a free thinker and have never really conformed to others’ belief systems, so it made sense to do it on my own. I needed to be able to be free to express my spirituality and the healing techniques that I discovered in my own way and to the people that I felt needed my help.

 

8.   What difference has being in business for yourself made in your life?

 

Owning and running my own business is very rewarding on many levels, it has given me the freedom to reach people I would never have met here in Australia and around the world, and help them to heal themselves. It has been rewarding in the way I can work it around my illness and stop when I need to. Being a single mother it also helped me to raise my daughters in a way I wouldn’t have been able to. It also gives me the freedom of expression and creativity to develop on my own web page and other media resources, which I love.

 

9.   What have been your biggest turning points in life and how did you manage these moments so that they shaped you rather than break you?

 

My biggest turning point was leaving my marriage with two young children and starting a new beginning, my path to healing – it was very hard and at times it did feel as though it would break me but it only made me stronger, I was extremely unwell from the stress and could have gone under, but I chose to be strong for myself and my girls and those who needed my help, this strength is what I like to impart onto my client and to give them the knowledge that everything they need to heal them is inside themselves. It was a long and enlightening journey.

The second biggest turning point was moving forward after the loss of my father to cancer who was, is and continues to be my spiritual inspiration and guide, inspiring me to develop my new business The Path Beyond.

 

10.   What is your greatest piece of advice that you would give others in business?

 

Be yourself! You can’t carry off anything else for too long.

 

11.   What have you found to be the most effective way to promote your business?

 

In my own personal experience, I have found that word of mouth from others who have interacted with you and dealt with you is the best way to gain new clients. Apart from that, I find the internet helps me to connect with people in different parts of the world, so I use it to its full advantage.

 

12.   What has been your greatest success to date in life and business?

 

Achieving two successful pregnancies with PCOS. Meeting the man I am about to marry who has also been by my side and supported me in the building of my new project The Path Beyond.

 

13.   What one piece of advice would you share with your younger self?

 

Listen to that inner voice it will never lead you astray and Always look after number one!

 

14.  You have created the opportunity to be the catalyst of positive change in the life of others, what change has this inspired within you as a person?

 

I have always been an extremely empathic person and have never judged anyone for the choices they have made and I hope my awareness can help others to think before judging.

 

15.   Lastly, what’s next?

 

I am in the process of building a new web page to be able to enhance the ability to bring my services to people all around the world, I am currently working on new formats to be able to bring my teaching online in an interactive way, as well as my readings and healings. This is very exciting and I love the creative flair I am discovering inside me.

 

Thank you to Rochelle for allowing me to take part in her very successful series.
