Soon after our first son was born in 2012, I started having some health issues. After doing countless blood tests and having what felt like a permanent appointment with various doctors and specialists, in early 2018 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
At first, I was relieved to finally know why I had such pain everywhere in my body, why I was exhausted all the time and why my brain was so foggy. I had an answer to why I would wake up sore, stiff and tired and why I got out of bed like feeling like (I imagined) an old and sickly woman.
But then the reality hit me, was I going to suffer like this for the rest of my life? It sucked, it was unfair and mostly I was angry at myself and my body for letting me down.
Not all days were bad but when I had a flare-up, it lasted for weeks.
I had to rest after a simple task like lifting my arms above my head to use the hairdryer.
I almost dropped our 1-year old more than once, because I had no strength in my arms to lift him onto the changing table.
And the only way that I could make it through to 5 pm without falling apart trying to cope with 2 toddlers, was when I had a nap earlier in the day.
I wasn’t prepared to live like this for the rest of my life and I knew something had to change when I was crawling up the stairs because I couldn’t get my legs to carry me.
From what I’ve read about Fibromyalgia after being diagnosed, it seemed that high levels of stress can make the symptoms worse, as can your diet. Also, exercise, mindfulness and relaxing activities seemed to create some good results.
Slowly I started making some changes in my life and I am grateful to say that I now live pain-free 80-90% of the time, my energy levels are back to what they were before I had children and I am physically stronger than I have ever been.
I am not saying that this is the only way to feel better but what I did was
- Change my diet by completely eliminating gluten and milk proteins (I did this under the supervision of the specialist I was seeing at the time)
- Have a daily yoga practice
- Use tapping to help me cope better with the physical pain and also with the emotional distress and anger of having a body that feels broken.
They say you only realize the value of something when you lose it, and it is true for many things, including your health. But all is not lost forever. I believe that it is never too late to start your healing journey and I can help you do that with EFT Tapping.
It worked for me and there is no reason that it wouldn’t bring your relief too.
I can’t give you any guarantees, but I can tell you that even if you don’t feel physical relief, it will help you cope better.
You will become emotionally more resilient and maybe even more important, you will become kinder to yourself if you are someone who is very self-critical.
You will also learn how to tap for yourself so that you can do this on your own, anytime you want and feel the need to.
