Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!


  1. For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.
  2. Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diagnose it. Some doctors even claim that it is all in our head.... I won't even dignify them with a response to that.
  3. Most of the people I know have so many different symptoms that it makes me think they actually are not all suffering the same illness. 
Cast your mind back to when everyone with stomach problems were just told they had IBS. Everyone I talked to with stomach problems were told they had IBS. It was an umbrella term that they gave to people when they didn't have a clue what was actually going on with them. As the years passed and more research and studies were done, they found that many people with IBS actualy had other conditions like Ulcerative Colitis, Coeliac Disease,  I feel like this is the case for Fibromyalgia. I feel like over time, as more and more studies are done, we will learn that so many of us actually have other conditions causing our illnesses. I already know of people who were told for years that they had Fibromyalgia and found out it was Lupus. I feel like we have been lumbered with another umbrella term and that there is something else going on.

I feel like Doctors are just hoping that they can give us medication and tell us that this is what is wrong and we will just believe them. They don't have a clue and so this is easier. I wish we could all fight more and more because I think if we did we would learn that our illness is not what we think it is. 

My hope is that over the next decade they find out what is going on and what is happening to our bodies, how to help us and how to prevent this from happening to others. 

What are you thoughts on this?? Remember I am not saying your illness is not real!! 

Sending gentle hugs,

    1. You see! This is what concerns me, that so many people with the fibromyalgia 'diagnosis' are actually suffering from other undiagnosed conditions.

  2. I too after much testing was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue syndrome. However the doctor told me that my diagnosis was based on eliminating other diseases. However, after I started using Bio-identical hormones (after suffering with nothing for 2 years of no HRT due to complete hysterectomy), I started feeling better. Also I realize now that my diet of sugar and processed foods was poisoning me a little at a time. I was 40 and felt like 70. I am off sugar and breads and pastas. I drink more water and eat nutrient rich greens and grassfed butter and take collagen. Basically Ketogenic Diet. I feel like I am in my 30s now. I think all along my health issues were nutritional deficiencies. Drs treat and diagnose symptoms, they do not know anything about nutrition. Some nutritionists go by the food pyramid which is incorrect. Sugar is an addictive drug. Sorry if this sounds like a rant. Our western diet is the cause of so many diseases.

First Impressions of Maybelline Tattoo Brow

Hello my lovelies,

How are we all? Today is the 1st February! I know I cannot quite believe that either. January felt like it was so long, but now I am thinking wow that was fast!

I have been trying so many different brow products out over the years I wanted to share with you my experiences of my first impressions with some of the new products on the market.

I like Maybelline products for the most part, but I have to be honest and say I have never been in love with any of their brow products. I saw the Tattoo Brow, which claims to be waterproof and lasts up to 2 days. So I thought it would be a good one to try. I saw it in Tesco in their 2 for £12 so I also picked up a new mascara as well, because why not haha.

So this morning I sat down in front of my mirror and set about doing my makeup. It is one of those days where I couldn't be bothered doing anything major so i put the bare minimum on so I wouldn't scare my clients and I was done.

I opened the box and was instantly disap…

The Anxious Blogger

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all well. I cannot believe we are now in February. The year is whizzing by already. As you know I started this year with great plans to do new things. I am doing those, in fact on Sunday I did something huge. I went to a blogger event.

I went alone, walked in the door with shaky hands and sat down with over 100 people around me who I had never met before. I nearly didn't go. I hadn't slept great and had been exhausted from a few nights of little to no sleep. My blood pressure was high, my stomach was acting up. I had plenty of excuses and reasons not to go. Then struggled getting a taxi and uber. So many things were telling me not to go. Just get back in to bed and hide, and try again next time.

Standing there with my coat and bag as the fona cab app finally had a taxi my heart nearly jumped out of my skin, if i clicked accept then I really had to go. I had to tell myself that if I didn't go I would have been depriving someone else of the …
