About Me

Existing with pain for about 10 years. The doctors threw around words such as some degenerative disc disease, some arthritis in the back, muscle spasms, scoliosis (one x-ray results showed it and another didn’t ๐Ÿ’), leg length discrepancy (one x-ray results showed it and another didn’t ๐Ÿ˜’), and sciatica in the right leg. None were bad enough to be causing the pain I was in, which lead me to finally being diagnosed with fibromyalgia on 9/11/2017.

Before my diagnosis, my life was just pretty much a constant bore. Seriously. Since I wasn’t sure what was causing me so much pain, my physical, mental, and spiritual health was depleting. I didn’t do much except work, with the occasional hang out with friends.ย  I didn’t want to do anything because whatever was wrong with me was draining me. I didn’t tell anyone, but I knew I was heading towards a low point. I was just existing.

Now that I have a diagnosis, I can learn different ways to cope with the pain. Knowing I have fibromyalgia actually lifted a weight off my shoulders because I’m finally able to put a name to my pain. I hate that I didn’t live the majority of my twenties like most do but, now is my chance to finish off the last couple of years with a bang. I’m ready to genuinely laugh, rock my confidence, and just figure out who I truly am and my purpose in this vast yet small world. I’m ready to live.

Despite my anxiety, I’m trying to live life as carefree as every adult should. Everyday I strive for my carefree-ness (is that even a word? ๐Ÿค”) to be at the level ofย me throwing guac on my salad bowl at Chipotle without looking at my bank account beforehand. I mean, isn’t that the epitome of being a carefree adult?

After making it rain at Chipotle a couple of times, I’ll occasionally need theย “back to earth” reality checks just to make sure everything is all good.

My loves: puns, memes, GIFs, my Shih Tzu (Polo), using the words “just” and “so”ย (sorry in advance), my family, all things food, elephants, tequila, using commas (sorry in advance, again), and Michael B. Jordan (Heeeyyyyย  Michael ๐Ÿ˜‰).

My hates: Not having Michael B. Jordan
