FibromyAWESOME – Get your attitude on already! Get your life back from fibromyalgia. By Melanie O’Shea
There is hope for recovery.
Melanie O’Shea was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2011, as a 30-year-old single mum to two young girls. Melanie became so fatigued, and her muscle pain so severe, that most nights she was physically unable to eat her own dinner after preparing basic meals for her girls.
It was no way to live.
Fibromyalgia is a debilitating, chronic condition that affects mostly women. Often sufferers are informed by their doctors that, unless they want to take a bunch of tablets, they will just have to ‘learn to live’ with the symptoms, stuck in a body that is letting them down.
In this often light-hearted, easy-to-read book, Melanie shares her story of healing from fibromyalgia.
She refused to accept a life defined by this disease, got her ‘attitude on’, and clawed her life back. Her inspiring story gives others options and hope for recovery to a happier, healthier life.
It’s time for FibromyAWESOME.
“Melanie O’Shea’s style is chatty, informal, no nonsense and frank. I was heartened by the fact that she shares my approach to the lifestyle medicine part of the condition; without which, as she points out, no real progress can be made by any of us! I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to understand why, as Fibro convalescents, we all ultimately need to make lifestyle changes to effect real change in our symptoms.”
MADELEINE SARA, FIBROMYALGIA BLOGGER (NORMAL WITH FIBROMYALGIA)
“As someone diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I have found FibromyAWESOME comforting to read, as well as interesting, insightful, well-sourced, and the tips and suggestions are easy to implement. I have read it many times already!”
KATE CUZZILLA, TEACHER/TUTOR LIVING WITH FIBROMYALGIA
“FibromyAWESOME is an empowering and personal guide to navigating recovery from Fibromyalgia. Melanie teaches you how to be the expert of your own body and you will discover the steps towards the journey of transforming your health. Melanie will show that it truly is possible for your health to radically improve. I’d recommend it to anyone who is struggling with this illness.”
SARAH PURVEY, BA HONS (Psych); MPSYCH (Clin), CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST
“The hard work Melanie has done in finding her own solutions and becoming empowered within the traditional medical system is evident in this guide. This book is both a brief glimpse at a woman’s journey with Fibromyalgia, and an inspiring story of the importance of choice in health care.”
ANGELA DALY, HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL
