So I went to the chiropractor.

    And it was the best fucking thing to happen to my life.

    He was so helpful/kind/friendly. He had me do some very mild stretches to see how well I move. Turns out, I do not move well at all. I always thought my flexibility was normal for someone who is fairly inactive. But my flexibility is far less than average. But after he manipulated/adjusted (cracked) my back and neck, I moved SO much better. It was almost unbelievable.
    Then they did this thing called electrical stimulation. Basically they put the things on (can’t think of what they’re called HA!) They put four on, one on the top left of my back, one on the top right, one on the bottom left, one on the bottom right. Then they place a giant heating pad on top (which got warm so quick, and was so comfortable). Next they turn up the electrical impulses until they’re strong, yet comfortable. Then you basically just lay there and relax. 
    Then they just rubbed me down with Bio-Freeze, and gave me a sheet of exercises.

    I go back Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to see how everything is going.


    Has anyone else tried chiropractic treatment for fibro or any other chronic pain?

                                          Tell me about it (:

    Serious question; NEED people’s input.

      If I were to make & sell my rice packs on my Etsy shop, would any of you buy them? I’ll make different size, different patters/fabrics, AND different scents (lavender, peppermint, etc.) to promote relaxation. They will be fairly inexpensive, and there will be a promotional code for 15% off for all of you who are chronically ill. They will be made-to-order and totally awesome! :D LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BUY THEM!

    Reblog this to help me spread the word please (:

    Crying isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of trying too hard to be strong for too long.
    (via missability)
    And there is no tragedy in that.: Fibro pain question


    This will probably sound weird but what the hell, hopefully someone on the tag understands what I’m talking about.

    I’m currently believed by my rheumy to have fibro and maybe something else going on. She can’t give me a definite diagnosis until we rule out everything else (which apparently means…


    ok little fibro people
