I thought I would post a link to the mini documentary that I was the subject of a few years ago.
It began when I was contacted by a graduate student from the University of Texas who was wanting to make a documentary. The premise was telling the story of surviving life in America as a family dealing with chronic, debilitating illness. We did not know that during the course of the filming I would discover the secret and finally cure myself of said disease.
Perhaps it was putting a spot light on what we were dealing with, perhaps it was serendipity, I don’t know. I’m just so very glad that it turned out to be called Healing Fibromyalgia rather than Living with Disease in America. Oy. I never watch it. I haven’t watched it since the first time. I think I have always been afraid of jinxing myself. I think I have always been afraid, unwilling to look back for this reason. This is why I could not write about healing from Fibro until I was in the deepest throws of it again.
I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. I have wanted to make this site for three years and I am finally doing it. I am grateful to be making a journal of what it’s like to go through this, of what I have to do and what is hard to do.
Anyhow, here’s the video:
