In 2000 after moving to FL I started my own business in the St. Pete, FL area while care-giving my parents. In 2013 I began looking for someone to run or buy my business because my energy level was getting low. My back still wasn’t feeling great either, after a rear end car accident in 2011. I wasn’t able to keep up producing all the events and marketing as I had earlier and my business continued to grow.
In April 2015, I sold my business and two homes and moved to The Villages where I could live a more active lifestyle, instead of being at a desk and computer for close to 8 hours a day with my business. As I was trying to find out what’s happening to me physically the Dr.’s told me my blood tests and all they saw indicated I was in great health. Again I’d ask them, “Why then is my body hurting all over and why am I so fatigued.” I thought it just might have been stress before but now I’m retired and happy with my new life style. So what is wrong with this picture? 3 Dr’s, in 2015, mentioned I might have fibromyalgia. So in October 2015, I decided to attend the Fibromyalgia Support group meeting in The Villages.
Valerie, from Rays of Hope, also attended. Your enthusiasm telling us about the new Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) bed and how it has helped you and so many people with their body pain and fatigue sounded wonderful. I had been in pain, throughout my entire body. It was taking me a while to get out of bed and to get going in the morning, I was fatigued and even talked to a friend 2 weeks earlier about feeling depressed, not understanding all this pain. I called Valerie the day after your talk and started a daily treatment with the Low Laser Light bed.
I jumped on this quickly because I would be leaving in two weeks on a two week vacation and I needed to find something to help me get back to my enthusiast self, so I could keep up with the gals I was going with and the others I would be meeting later. This LLLT has been a God send. I was able to get in 12 daily sessions before leaving. My body pain is gone and my fatigue is gone. I got up these last five days early each morning instead of lying in bed for about an hour thinking about getting up. I got right up feeling good. One morning I even walked a couple miles with some friends. I actually thought that would be fun. (That would not have been my thought previously.) Also I had outpatient surgery a week before starting LLLT and am amazed at how well the 3 inch incision is healing.
Thank you for being in the right place, at the right time for me. I hope to come back after my two weeks away and report I'm still feeling great.
