Having the possibility of pain relief is a double edged sword! IF I give myself to the possibility of relief I let my mind go to a place of hope… one that could turn to bite me in the butt if it doesn’t work out! If I don’t let my mind go there then there is NO hope!


I was in this place so many times in the past! Doctor after doctor giving myself over to the possibility… pain relief… one time it came from an experience a naturally healing center…

“Come for a free evaluation” “We treat Fibromyalgia” So off I went for my “free” Ok $100 evaluation … not so free (but of course I did NOT know that until AFTER the evaluation! Here is how it went… See the ad, HOPE pain relief will come this time…take time off work… HOPE, go to appointment…HOPE! Everything sounded great! They will do a thorough evaluation, real doctors but natural healing focus! They did bloodwork… extensive… saw the chiropractor… Doctor said… come back in a week for follow up and to review the results. HOPE EVERY DAY OF EVERY MINUTE FOR THAT WEEK!!!

When I returned in a week (With HOPE in my pocket) I was let into a little room. a binder was brought to me, with my results. The bad news… ha I have fibromyalia (Yeah, I knew that, let me NOT laugh or cry), Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (Yeah, I knew that), Degenerative Disk disease (Hmmm… new dx) The good news… We can treat all of this for… drum roll…$8,000 (Hope went right down the drain) my great health insurance does not cover their services. Oh and it is HALF up front AND I would need to come 3X a week for treatment (Ummm I work and tutor, and I am a wife and mom) Once a week would be stretching it… HOPE was in the toilet at this point! At what cost is HOPE? Within reach my or out of it?

I have felt many times as though Fibro has stolen my HOPE. When and where would I find it? At a doctors office, with a new treatment, a pill (or many of them), natural healing center?


Had I not been given this experience I am not sure my mind would have been open to natural healing methods. If they had something that would work at the cost of $8,000 what else is out there I don’t know about? My mind had been so stuck in the cycle of seeing doctors, trying pills, seeing more doctors trying new pills that natural methods were foreign to me. Enter Young Living Essential Oils into my life and HOPE returned once again (resiliency is my strong point)!


Night Fog-In the Dark

Ohhh we all know lack of sleep effects us! Having fibromyalgia and not sleeping well creates a VICIOUS CYCLE!

Little sleep—Pain—Fibro Fog—Little sleep—Pain—Fibro Fog You see what I mean?


Thank You for https://www.facebook.com/#!/FibroColors the graphic! This shows the cycle clearly!!!

Enter night time… Last night I laid down exhausted from the day. Ready to fall right asleep…ummm think again!! Text comes through… “Hi, mom. I have the worst migraine ever… throwing up all day… going to the ER.” This is from my 19 year old daughter over 2 and 1/2 hours away… ummm sleep NO! Texting back and forth for an  hour… worried momma mode… wandering mind… always to the worst… what if she needs me… what if it is more than a migraine… what if it is too much for her boyfriend to handle… what if… arrggg…Finally she is situated, meds flowing… tell her I gotta get some sleep as I have to get up in 5 hours (midnight by this time)!!! Sigh… she is feeling relief so I can sleep!!! Ummm NO!!! Cat meows she is hungry… dog growls cause one of the other dogs touched him while he is sleeping! (Greyhounds are PICKY sleepers)…Husband’s breathing machine is whistling… ARGG!!! Now my mind… IF I don’t sleep well I will have more pain tomorrow…I have had too many good days… I want a good day… NO MORE PAIN PLEASE… It is already 12:30am If I don’t go to sleep soon… round and round my mind plays… reach for My Tranquil Oil…rub it on…SIGH… drift off the sleep… 4:45 am cat meows AGAIN… HUNGRY AGAIN!!!! (elderly cats eat and eat!!)  I could have had a bit more sleep ok 15 minutes but hey, sleep is sleep…but noooo…and so the day of fogginess starts.

I am dreaming all day of a GOOD NIGHT’s Sleep!!! Free from texts, meows, growls and breathing machine noises!!! Oh and the Tranquil Oil GOES ON BEFORE I LAY DOWN TONIGHT!!!!
