I was once called Wonder Woman.

Now, I am a mom of 3 living her daily life fighting osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia at 31. So many things I used to be able to do, I have no chance at now. This is hopefully a humorous therapy for me. Just chronicalling my journey through motherhood, being a good wife, being a mother, and every day daily stuffs. :D

Hello there, and Happy Holidays to you and yours! I'm doing this as a side project, just some way for me to vent sometimes, or express how I feel when no one understands. If you live with Fibromyalgia, you will be able to understand most of my posts easily. If not, I hope the rest of you at least find some humor in the way I will put things down so as to make you smile and possibly even brighten your day a bit! Not everything will be funny, sometimes things will be serious, or whatnot, but I will always be honest with how I experience things.

Now, a little about me. I am Dustin. I am a mother of 5 beautiful children, not all of whom are from my own womb. We have 3 of our own, I have 1 stepson whom I love dearly, and we have unofficially adopted my oldest daughters BFF. I was recently diagnosted with osteoarthritis in my lower back that causes me a great deal of pain, but the worst of it all seems to be the Fibromyalgia. The FM causes my joints, random ones each day, to ache and hurt like there is no tomorrow. They do not know WHY I have this pain, but I've had injections, MRIs, pain management for a bit now, and pain medications, along with other meds as well. Pain meds only seem to make the pain somewhat tolerable as long as I do not try to stand or walk for more than an hour at a time. I have been married for 10 years this past November, some good times, some bad, but we've worked through it and come out much stronger because of it.

Anways, enjoy your stay, and I hope you will return! :D

  1. Though I haven't technically received the diagnosis, we've been thinking that I've got fibro (and bout a half-dozen other things) for a while now... the "medical community" has been no help whatsoever, but I have found amazing relief through chiropractic adjustments and lifestyle changes (diet modification) over the past year. I know how debilitating and depressing it can be, but there is hope!!!
