Hi, I’m Allegra from @motivatedmovement_fitness! I’m so happy to be part of this community. When I was in college, I was experiencing a lot of back pain, focusing issues, and fatigue. My mom had had fibromyalgia for a while at that point so I was pretty sure that’s what I was dealing with too. After visiting doctors, they confirmed I was right. Since then I’ve spent a lot of time finding the best ways to manage my symptoms but I refuse to let my condition define me! I’m big into self care, and some of my favorites include working out, dancing, meditating, massages, and epsom salt baths. I give myself grace during flare ups and try to take advantage of low pain days when I can. I’m learning what works for me to keep my pain under control, and I pat attention to what can trigger a flare. My life is a constant balancing act but I feel stronger for it.
