||I am 45, married, have 3 children...Joseph 20, Kayla 16 and Leilani 12. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2005 and unable to move freely without constant pain. Due to my condition and an enlarged heart, I had to give up my business in 2007. I was confined to my bed most of the time, depressed, stiff, swollen and in constant pain. I was told I would never work again and after years of pain and various medications for treatment, I have learned to adapt, know my limitations and stay clear of the things that trigger my pain. My heart is back to it's normal size and with regular health check-ups I am now working on my Real Estate License in hopes to soon return back to work full time. I am a Mentor/Learning Coach for my 16yr old through K12 Calfornia Virtual Academies and through past personal experiences can help my husband cope with his pain and prepare for what lies ahead after his surgery. I have come a long way and believe we can both re-align our goals and learn to live happy successful lives despite what we have endured. I thank God everyday for giving me 3 great children a patient & loving husband and the strength to keep on going... I believe that anything is possible if you never give up!
