Jen’s Story #ChronicPainAwarenessMonth

As those who like our facebook page or follow our instagram, will know, is that we asked for people to get in touch and share their stories with us. This is because September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month, and in 2 weeks, starts Invisible Illness Awareness Week!

Here’s one of our stories sent in by Jenny, written by her about her life and how being diagnosed has changed her!

Hi, my name is Jenny. I am 32 years old, married, & mother of three. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a year-and-a-half ago and recently diagnosed with MS. These two illnesses have taken so much from me & have totally altered my life. I was an avid runner before getting sick. I was very active in my children’s school/sports activities & now I have to totally rely on my amazing husband to help with everything. Although my chronic illness has stolen so much from me, it has also put a lot into perspective. I never take a good day for granted. I am now so thankful for the good moments in my life, no matter how small they may be. I am on quite a bit of medication for fibro and going to start meds for MS soon. I am extremely thankful for my wonderful husband and family who give me a tremendous amount of support. I hope they find a cure for us all.
Much love,
Jenny!
