I experienced pain in my legs from an early age but was only diagnosed with fibromyalgia in my late twenties. After years of not listening to my body, and ignoring its signals to take care of myself, it finally spoke clearly enough for me to hear.
When I first found out I had fibromyalgia, the overwhelming message was that there was nothing that could be done and I should just live with it. At first I accepted it, but eventually I decided that even if there isn’t a cure, there must be something I can do to feel better. It took a few years of trial and error to find the solutions that worked for me. I believe that I can help people find their solutions more quickly than I did working on my own.
Strangers have always felt very comfortable confiding their most personal issues to me and I finally realised that perhaps life was trying to tell me what I should do with my life and get the tools to ease others’ journeys.
I’m a dog trainer and have learned that there are more than one way to look at a situation and that persevering and being open to new approaches will provide a solution. I’ve also learned a lot about helping people change life-long habits.
I can also give you some ideas on how to handle being a low energy mom with a high energy pup.
My principle role is to provide information and be a cheerleader to my clients.
