Will you advocate for yourself? Choose to be proactive.
Will you locate a physician who will work with you to find the right medication and who will give you good medical advice?
Will you decide to loose weight or continue on a path to obesity?
I hope you choose to be proactive and advocate for yourself. Find a physician with whom you are comfortable and can openly discuss your medical needs. The first question should be whether they believe in Fibromyalgia and if they treat Fibromyalgia patients. You want them for the long haul, so interview like you would if you could chose your child's teacher. Your daily existence depends on how your physician treats you. If they do not fight for your health, what do you have? The answer, we know to well...high level pain, migraines, IBS, etc. We deserve to feel the best that we can while living with Fibromyalgia or any other chronic disease. Because you will interact often with the physician's staff....how do they interact with you? Be strong, advocate for yourself and be proactive!!
The song, "I am Woman Hear Me Roar" comes to mind. :D
Because it is difficult for many of us to do aerobic exercise, obesity is becoming a problem. Obesity is a medical condition by itself. I've come to the conclusion that I need an exercise buddy. Someone to stretch with me and to go on a walk daily. Because we travel, my buddy is usually my husband. For some reason when I want to walk, he doesn't. It's difficult to mesh our schedules.
I hope we all can make a committment to helping our bodies to heal.
