They think my Fibromyalgia was caused after extensive physical and sexual abuse during my childhood. The abuse started when I was an infant and was ongoing until I was 17. I was finally diagnosed after years of pain and exhaustion at 22 years old.

My life has changed since my diagnosis. I am currently in the process of trying to get in disability. I also now realize I have a condition and try to conserve my energy as much as possible. So far, the most effective treatment I’ve had is going on Lyrica, but even this only helps somewhat.
