Are you living with fibromyalgia and looking for a framework to help you manage the symptoms? Would you like to take control of your healing journey?
The Fibromyalgia Framework series shares my (evolving) view of managing fibromyalgia based upon my personal experience and research. I took myself from miserable to thriving despite fibromyalgia, but it took me years and I lost the entirety of my 20s first – I don’t want this for you.
The framework gives you information and tools so you can tackle chronic pain and chronic fatigue today.
I have been fighting for myself and researching for the past several years. I wish this compilation of information and tools existed to help me at my beginning stages. Now my mission is to help your journey be shorter than mine. This is why I have written around 200 articles on my blog, two books, created many templates and workbooks and this series.
I lost too much of my life to chronic pain, fatigue and insomnia, waiting for a doctor to help, with no idea where to start helping myself.
