It started when I lost both my parents together (16days apart) I then gave birth to my daughter. Luckily I was (am) a strong person and knew I had to get through the grief to raise my daughter properly. I never got help or was offered counselling so I came to terms with everything myself.
As the years went on I thought and still do think if them all the time. But as a spiritualist it gave me strength to carry on knowing in my heart that even though I can't see them they see me and watch over me and my family. As I have gotten older the illnesses have started. I had a mini stroke first which led to the diagnosis of fibromyalgia which is progressing into arthritis. I still work full time but find no-one seems to understand the illness and how if makes me feel which depresses me from time to time. But this is my life and I have to go on and make the best of it.
Medication: I only take medication for the fibromyalgia if I didn't I don't think I could work full time and that is what still makes me me.
