Do you have problems regulating heat? Are you sensitive to weather changes? Does the heat make you sick?
Many people with Fibromyalgia find the better weather usually means less pain but they find themselves with a new problem, the heat makes them very, very sick!
AC Units are a household necessity for many people with Fibromyalgia. We tend to be very sensitive to changes in temperature, and overheat easily!
But what do you do when you don't have AC? Or what can you do in combination with an AC unit?
MAJOR DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, FIBROMYALGIA
These are just a few of the labels the doctors have given me over the years. I am not my "label" I am not my illness. Labels only benefit the doctor's, it gives them a "place to start" in treating me, that label may open doors to resources, the label may offer treatment options, that label was needed when I applied for disability... but it isn't WHO I am!
I am a wife, a step-mom, a daughter, a sister, an aunt. I am kind, trustworthy and honest. I am a woman who has been through a hell of a lot in my life and hopefully have grown and learned to be a better person.
I love my dogs, to bake, country music turned up LOUD, spending time with my niece. I love nature (but not camping). My perfect vacation would be a week in a cottage on the lake, relaxing and spending time with family!
I HAVE a disability, I have fibromyalgia, I have anxiety & depression...it doesn't define me, it doesn't tell you WHO I am, that isn't my authentic self.
When I look in the mirror, I see ME... not my disabilities!
I have been wanting to purge, organize and deep clean our kitchen — we have too much stuff!
This has been on my to-do list for FAR too long. We have decided to paint are replace all the flooring, so seems like a good time to purge and clean.
I first filled out this questionnaire as part of a therapy session a few years ago. I wish I could locate it to compare the answers.
I decided to fill it out again this year and make it public. I thought it might give you a little insight into me!
