A Very Warm Welcome To Fibro Flair.

Hi, I’m Lynne and a very warm welcome to my blog, Fibro Flair.

After living with mysterious, random symptoms for years, I was finally diagnosed in 2014 with Fibromyalgia. We all know only too well, there is no cure for this invisible illness, but we live in hope! In the meantime, there are so many natural resources we can use to self-help and support each other to feel the flair of life and reduce the flare of fibromyalgia.

As well as being a mad mum, I’m also an NLP Practitioner and a member of the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists.  I will be sharing  NLP, Mindfulness, and general self- help techniques and tips that I personally use each day. All the tips I share here, have made a significant difference to the symptoms I live with.  I am very sure they will make a huge difference to you too.

Life can get pretty chaotic for all of us, trust me having five sons I know chaos, so my aim is to make this blog a positive, relaxing place to be.   Take a look at our about page to see how Fibro Flair was born and how I can help you to alleviate the myriad of daily symptoms.  I have also created a free booklet, 14 Ways to Improve Your Fibromyalgia Memory Daze, as a gift for stopping by.  Please do click the link to receive your free copy.

Hope you love the blog and find the info really helpful.

Gentle hugs,
Lynne

‘Just Be’

‘Just Be.’   Life is usually so busy, I find that I need time to completely relax (that’s generally not at home, can you imagine the noise level of 5 boys in the house).  I  love to immerse myself in nature.  

The Birth of Fibro Flair – About Me

My life was completely turned on its head with the onset of fibromyalgia. I had no idea what was happening as all my tests were coming back pretty normal.
Four years later I was diagnosed  with fibromyalgia and I have to say knocked sideways. I had expected them to find something, give me a pill and I would recover…that wasn’t about to happen. I am a mum of six and there was no question of giving in to all the symptoms that were jumping in and out of my life.

Throughout life, I became  very good at push problems and emotions under the rug, and just getting on with life,  I tried to do the same with fibro. Needless to say, I ended up in a vicious circle of flares. I have to honest and say, my attempts to change my lifestyle were half hearted, mainly because I was just so exhausted all the time.

Then I plummeted into the worst flare I have ever had, until then I thought I had experience fibromyalgia at its worst…I hadn’t! I could barely walk for months. At best I would only sleep a few hours at night. I lost my appetite completely and the fibro fog was the straw that broke the camels back, I could barely string a sentence together.

In the middle of the  night I woke up with a headache the likes of which I have never experienced before in my life and was taken into hospital and diagnosed with cluster headaches. I hated how my life was progressing or not as the case maybe. Facing daily chores was like staring at Mount Everest. I retreated back from the outside world as I plummeted into depression, that ever-pressing weight that crushes everything positive in life. I started to take medication, but that just compounded the fibro fog, so I stopped. My life was truly in tatters.

This was not the way I wanted my life to be! I didn’t want my children to see me so ill and constantly down. I knew absolutely without doubt, I had to do something…Where to start…I had no idea.

Due to my involvement in network marketing, I had delved into an ocean of self-development training including a brief encounter with NLP, but had never thought of it as being a very powerful tool to help me control my symptoms. For some reason, I looked at it again. I learned a couple of techniques that proved to help the pain I was in. I suddenly saw a ‘light at the end’ of a very long tunnel!

I set to work and studied hard and qualified as an NLP Practitioner and I am currently studying to become a Master Practitioner.

The fundamental belief of NLP is: A person isn’t broken, they have all the resources internally to achieve what they want to achieve.

Suddenly, I realised  how many other people could I help regain their lives by arming  them with some of the most powerful NLP tools to bring about change and alleviate their symptoms I also realised just how many self-help techniques in terms of nutrition, exercise and natural remedies I had learned over the years. This was the birth of Fibro Flair.

Why did I call it Fibro Flair?

The vision of any flair for my life vanished  at some point during the many fibro flares I experienced, and that is a place I never want to revisit or see anyone else heading towards. Despite living with fibro, by using NLP and Mindfulness techniques, I can see the flair of life again…it’s exciting! I want other people to experience the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’  which is the reason for my blog.

I hope you get huge benefits from the advice I give here and please do remember, if you are worried about implementing anything I cover here, please do contact a medical doctor for advice.

If you would like to know more about NLP or would just like to chat please do contact me, I would love to hear from you.

Love and gentle hugs to you all x

Frustrating Forgetfulness?

Do you get frustrated with forgetfulness?

I know exactly how you feel.

Wasting heaps of precious time looking for things. Missing meetings and events. Forgetting to sign school letters. I actually completely forgot my postcode on one occasion which was very embarrassing. Frustrating to say the least. I began to get very angry and upset with myself which was definitely a complete waste of time and caused my symptoms to spiral.
