Is This You?

Do you find yourself thinking or saying these things?

  • I’m sick and tired of being sick, tired and hurting all the time. There are so many things I want to do. Will I always feel like I have to miss out on my own life, my kids’ lives, my friends, my family…?
  • I’m too young to feel this old. I move like an old woman; I hurt like an old woman… but I don’t feel old on the inside. Will I always feel like a prisoner in my own body?
  • I was just diagnosed and have no idea what to do next. I don’t even know anyone else with fibromyalgia! What will I do? Who can I talk to?
  • I wish I didn’t have to take so many medications. I worry about all the side effects. Aren’t there some natural options that cause fewer problems and can help my body to heal?
  • I’m so frustrated that people don’t understand what I deal with every day. My family doesn’t understand; my friends don’t understand; my doctor doesn’t even understand. Sometimes I feel so alone in dealing with all of this. How can I get the help I need when I can’t even find someone who understands what I’m going through?

If this sounds familiar, you’re in great company. Those are all things I’ve said before too.

Would you describe yourself with this kind of attitude?

  • Ready to try something new to get new results. What I’ve been doing just isn’t working.
  • Willing to be coached. I’m open to learning new ideas and ways of doing things that will provide results.
  • Have a “whatever it takes” attitude towards reclaiming my health and life.
  • Understand that this will be a journey. With a Coach beside me, the journey will be easier and the goal attainable.
  • Committed to putting in the effort to feeling better and actually living again.

Are these among your personal values?

  • Humor. I realize that sometimes the best thing to do is just laugh at myself and life as a fibro babe. After all, I DO look pretty silly with those ice packs on sometimes!
  • Self-Care. Even if I haven’t been very good at it, I do know the importance of taking care of myself so that I have something to give to others.
  • Freedom. I really want to be free to do the things that I love; free from medication and its side effects; free from pain and fatigue. Free to be fully ME.
  • Hope. I believe that someday things will be better… even if I don’t know how or when. Sometimes it’s just a tiny little spark of hope, but it’s there.
  • Compassion. I’m compassionate with others and understand that I need to be compassionate with myself as well.
