Managing Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Workshops! A guest post from Melody

This is a guest post from Melody of Only to Be.  Here she tells us about some Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain workshops she is running

She writes

“Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain can affect every part of your life; mind, body, and spirit. The treatments and approaches offered by the Medical Community, in most cases, are community based instead of individualized. Lacking and offering little hope of living a full and active life. The life you want.

These workshops were designed for you and what you face daily, by a woman, Melody who has personally experienced what Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain can throw at you.

These workshops will explore obstacles, practical solutions, provide education and techniques that can reduce the symptoms you experience with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain.

WORKSHOP 1 – COMPARISONS AND DECISIONS

Holding on to who you were, should be or want to be can be stopping you.
