Last year, at this point in time I was about 170 lbs. I had painful joints, I could not walk for extended periods of time. I had trouble sleeping due to chronic snoreing and I was diagnosed with fibramyalgia. My doctor put me on Lyrica.
I had terrifying detailed nightmares and I was stoned during the day. I took myself off of this medication and yet I craved it like crazy.
Flash forward 365 days later....I have not had a fibromyalgia flare up in months. I do not snore anymore. My knees are what they are but not constantly painful. I can and do walk 3 miles at a time. I do not hate my body anymore.
