Bedbound to Lifting Weights - My CFS/Fibromyalgia Success Story

    Hello,

    I just want to share my success story. I put up a video where I detail my dramatic improvement:



    My predominant form of TMS is CFS/Fibromyalgia, but I also have/had about a million other symptoms. I created a youtube channel where I make short videos that tell my story. I hope it will help you. One of the things that helped me the most was reading (and watching) recovery stories.

    Thank you for posting, @recoverfromcfs! This is an awesome video, and I'm sure it will be an inspiration for many people! I appreciate your reminder near the end that "your journey will be different". Great job.

    I'm seeing two embeds for your video - I might edit the second one out, because as far as I can tell, the first one is working just fine :) and our forum founder, @Forest, tells me that extra outside links are not good for our search engine rank or something technical that I don't really understand :D Or maybe he'll see this and let us both know.

    I hope you stick around!

    Amazing recovery! Thanks for sharing your story on here in such an eloquent way, it will help many I am sure. I used to not be able to sit without pain too, especially in a soft chair but now I can do it without any symptoms at all. It is all the same thing. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks so much for posting these. I have had Fibromyalgia for 15 years and CFS for 3 years, and your videos give me hope this approach can work for me. I don't have a youtube account, but please know I will be watching!
