Hello and welcome!
I spent a long time thinking over the name of this blog. I don’t claim ownership over the Fibromyalgia. It is not mine. I will never say “my” before Fibromyalgia. However, when you name a blog, people need to know what it is about in order to find it.
So here it is, Melissa vs Fibromyalgia. This encapsulates my mission perfectly – to live, love and be well. I am fighting Fibromyalgia. Not just for myself, but for my two beautiful, busy boys and the love of my life (Husband).
This site is the compilation of my learning from my own journey and from my research.
Here’s a post that I wrote about: The Whole of Life Change Anniversary
Here’s where I write about What it’s Really Like to Live With Fibromyalgia
Here’s a recent post of what other bloggers and I have found to help with fighting Fibromyalgia: What Works: A Roundup
I am trying to come to terms with the idea that this could be a progressive illness. I cannot give up that nugget of hope that I will find some measure of relief one day.
Welcome to the continuation of my journey.

PS: I am obviously not a health professional, I only know what works for me. I share my journey so that people would know the things they can try, in discussion with their medical team. We are a long way from the world in which I received my diagnosis, it was a hostile world where no one I knew believed in fibro/CFS and there was little information.
