Severe Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia - at just age 25 this is what it looks like. I don’t show this side to people, I fact I hide this from my children, my parents, even my husband. When it gets like this it’s unbearable and you can’t see it because I don’t show you - but tonight it was so visible on my face I realised I don’t even let myself see how bad flare ups are, I’m in denial. I am a 25 year old mother of twins... things are expected of me things I haven’t been able to meet or do because of my disability limitations and there’s more denial and acceptance of how bad it’s become.
This just from sitting at a table playing poker with my friends, from walking home in the cold - a 5-10 minute walk that took over half an hour... the pain was horrendous. I didn’t even know the tears were falling until I couldn’t see through my glasses, and definitely didn’t realise how visible my pain actually was in that long dredge Home.
I’ve suffered from Fibromyalgia since the age of 12, that’s now more than half my life I’ve known this gradual building of pain, of joints grinding and aching, of people not seeing nor believing the intense pain I’ve kept inside for so long. I don’t want my children to see me like this, my family, my friends... this is something I keep so deeply buried inside others cannot recognise when I’m struggling to just walk or sit down. But if I don’t show this side... there will be no understanding or awareness - I live with an invisible illness (several in my case) and you may not see the wheelchairs, the walking aids, the visible pain, but it is ALWAYS there and sometimes we have good and bad days we hope for the good and expect the bad, we deal with more pain than I ever thought I could handle at my age, I hope my girls NEVER have to feel this pain on a daily severe scale, I hope it is only my burden to bare if it means they go pain free. Stand up and fight stand up and support and stand up to understand what we go through because sometimes we just don’t have the strength and desperately need it from those closest to us. #fibromyalgia#chronicpain#fibrowarrior#chronicpainwarrior#twinmomma#motheroftwins#twinmum#pain#invisibleillness#fibromum
Glutathione Protects Against Serious Disease
Antioxidants are nature’s antidote to oxidative stress, the accumulation of free radicals that underlies a vast number of diseases and the functional impairments associated with aging. Glutathione and its related enzymes are our most prolific antioxidants because, in addition to directly scavenging free radicals, they also reactivate other antioxidants.
But that’s just one of the benefits of glutathione. It also plays crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process that neutralizes drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes, and other toxins and carcinogens.
Given this broad range of activities, it makes sense that glutathione depletion is associated with disease and aging—and that increasing glutathione levels is not only a smart move for health maintenance but also an effective therapy for a host of serious diseases. #glutithione#vitaminivtherapy#antiaging#disease#cancer#wellness#hormonereplacement#chronicillness#pain#immunehealth#guthealth#antioxidant#integrativemedicine
