Let say you have been told you have fibromyalgia, a pain and debilitating ailment that have given your state of feeling a name. I can remember back in 1989 a client and friend who I trained and coached to be in the first Ms. Fitness Contest in Las Vegas told me she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. When she told me I did not know what to say, I just set and listened while she explained what her days was liked. Now mind you this lady trained with me.
At that time I was fresh out of the Marine Corps and with that mindset this lady did everything I asked her to do to help change her body. We worked out six days a week for six months sometimes from 2 to 4 hours, which would include running, stationary cardio equipment, swimming, stretching, racquetball, cardio classes and weight training. I even visited her home on a weekly basis and make sure that her food pantry and refrigerator only stocked approved nutrition. If it did have others delights, I would promptly put them in the s_ _ _ can, an expression I picked up from the Marine Corps meaning (garbage can).
As I listened to her tell me when she told someone about her day-to-day life of battling pain and tightness, severe fatigue, insomnia, concentration and stomach problems, headaches, anxiety, numbness and/or tingling and heightened sensitivity to touch even from her clothes and foot wear, I could not believe what I was hearing. Remember I just told you her daily routine, in my mind this could not be happening to this lady. But it was, is and not only to her you may be experiencing like her, who are looked at as if they are faking it or “crazy”
