I was interviewed this week by Teri Lowe. She is a NFMCPA advocate & leader of Nevada Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Network.
It was exciting being asked to be interviewed. As the time grew closer I began to grow nervous. What if my fibro fog took over? I made notes on the topics that I would like to cover and reviewed them more than a few times. I knew the interview time was 6:45 p.m. and then the day before the interview I realized that the interview was not 6:45 p.m. my time but 8:45 p.m. My nightly routine is to take my medicine at 7:00 p.m. and begin getting ready for bed. I try to be in bed at 9:00 most nights. The night of the interview my nerves increased. I watched the clock and finally the time came for me to call in. Once Teri greeted me all of my fears went away. I was talking to my friend Teri and fellow advocate. She and I met because we were both chosen to become advocates with the NFMCPA. That weekend bonded us forever. In the interview I talk about why I became an advocate and my journey along the way. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did.
