What Happened to You?
I have been asked this question many times during the last few years. People used to ask me that in a negative connotation once. Eight years ago, I was a “normal’ healthy 20 something girl ready to take on the world. Then, I started having pain. I went to school to be an EMT and could not pass the test. I would fail by one point each time. I started having migraine headaches and stiff neck. I went to the doctor, fixed that pain. Check. Then the pain would move. By the time I got through seeing the doctor every day for a week, I had 18 out of the 18 pain trigger points for Fibromyalgia. I would spend the next 6 years trying to find the right medication to restore some sort of comfort and normalcy. I’ve often been asked “What happened to you?” I used to take that very negatively but now I know it is a compliment. So…..How do you go from this…… 2005
