Hello, I’m Rebecca, I am 24 and I am the person behind onceuponafibrotime. I have Fibromyalgia, Joint hypermobility syndrome and anxiety – despite this life is ok but I am not where I want to be.
I am a building surveying graduate who is desperate to feel well enough to get on with life and find myself a job within the construction industry. I currently work part time in the same job I have had since I was 16 and I still enjoy it but I need to make use of my degree. At the moment the worst Fibro symptoms I am experiencing include memory problems and lack of concentration… this makes me really conscious that in a demanding role I would just not cope and with my anxiety well, I just feel a bit stuck in a rut at the moment.
However that being said there are things in life I really enjoy. I love listening to music, I am a huge steps fan (Steps… 90’s pop group) and I am proud to say I have seem them 7 times in concert as well as meeting them once! I love television, I watch all the soaps as well as being a huge fan of american tv shows such as greys anatomy, scandal and suits.
I started this blog both to vent my frustrations but also positively talk about Fibromyalgia. It sucks as a condition and I think the people who suffer with it deserve help and support, not ignorance and lack of understanding.
