      What is the best advice anyone (friend, doctor or otherwise) gave you to deal with your pain or fatigue?  On the flip side, what is the worst advice you’ve gotten?

      As per my Fab blog post  earlier this week, just trying to take a new approach to my research on these types of chronic disorders.  What is it really like to deal with them every day and how can you find good advice?  

      Thank you in advance to all those who choose to share.

        • It definitely is a living hell. I was diagnosed with a stage IV female issue at the age of 22. It all went down hill from there. I have had so many struggles with my health including infertility (and all I ever dreamed about was being a mom), stomach issues, weight gain, etc. You name it, I got diagnosed with it. And unfortunately, the more dr’s gave me for one issue, the more I’d end up with another. By the time I hit my 30’s and 40’s I had had so many surgery’s and was on one too many prescribed meds. I was sick, fat, and miserable. And worst of all, I just wanted to end it all. I did not want to live anymore. The thought of that memory brings a ton of tears to my eyes as I write this. I knew I was better off dead. I did not want to continue living my life like this. And I was not someone my dear hubby deserved to be around. As I prayed to die (and the courage to end it all) or a miracle to happen, God heard my voice. To make an already long story short, my work was having a health fair and I came across a booth for Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing. Reluctantly, but desperately I agreed to try it. What happened next was short of a miracle. In just the first 3 days I had more energy than I had had in many, years, my mental clarity returned (and in just those 3 days, I released 4 lbs). As I continued on the product, I just kept feeling better and better (and released 2 dress sizes in 1 1/2 months as a side benefit). It has now been 6 yrs and I have not taken a single dr written suggestion. I am the healthiest and happiest ever!! Did it cure me of everything I had?...probably not. But I didn’t care, all I knew was that I no longer suffered and that I got my life back!

        • rose, I would love it if you could message me about this product! I have gained so much weight the past few years. It’s quite a struggle! I would love to be off some of my meds if possible, as you mentioned, side effects of the meds aren’t great.
          I am so fatigued I take a 3-4 hour nap every day!

        • Of course, Joanmarie. It’s one of the reasons I am so passionate about it. I knew I wasn’t the only one suffering. I’ll send you the link.

        • Tracy is so right. Those are the exact words I heard from countless dr’s. Just learn to live with it & accept it. I commend every woman out there that didn’t go for it and took charge of their own bodies and lives. I only wish I had done it sooner rather than later. heartestatic

        • I’d feel fine if environmental toxins were eliminated. Worse advice was have a mind over body attitude while holding a jar of gasoline. I thought the doctor insane.

        • I also have had many comments from doctors (all male) in the past about living with my condition..I chose to acquire all female doctors and they have not steered me wrong yet!

          Also probiotic therapy, clean diet and enough exercise whereas I am not straining too much...couple that with some meds that are necessary and I’m not doing too bad.happy
