I really do have to get better at posting this blog daily. : ) I get busy and tired. I guess I am giving in to complacency sometimes as we all do. Anyways, God says it’s time to take our lives to the NEXT level of glory. I can tell ya, I love the view from where I am sitting. We worked on finishing my house this weekend. It’s all organized and it is fit for the Queen and King of God to reign and rule their lives from their place, oh yeah…..don’t forget the little princes, Dylan and Isaac. : ) Isaac has officially moved out of mommy and daddy’s room into his own. We are going through the adjustment phase. I can’t sleep without him….hmmm…..It’s good that he grows though. I woke up so excited in my spirit Sunday morning BEFORE I got to church. I set the expectation in my heart that God would move mightily through his people. Guess What? He did. My FB friend from Nigeria, Prince Deij Adekoyah was in town to preach. I love the king. he is so sweet. What I didn’t know about my friend is that he WAS temporarily blind. God had a divine appointment for us both. I prayed for a woman and Deiji. By the end of service, he was recognizing his Facebook family. : ) Praise God!!! I have been healed and completely set free from Bipolar Disorder and Fibromyalgia. No more doctors, and meds. I am still going to counselling to take my relationships and business (es) to the next level. As if this was not enough, God had even more in store for me. I tell ya NOTHING compares to the natural high God and his vitamins can put you on PERMANENTLY. I decided to go back to my Zumba class after being absent for weeks. My Jeep had broken down and was in the shop for 3 weeks. It felt like foever to me. I felt like a fish in a dry fish bowl. Before Zumba class, one of my favorite friends was giving out samples of this stuff called Spark. It’s an all natural energy drink. I really pushed myself in Zumba and got too hot. I almost got sick. Jenn(my friend) checked on me and I told her that I was fine. I had to go potty too so I was in the bathroom like 2 almost 3 songs. Yeah, it was like that. I drank tons of water. After i wiped my face, I felt much better. Half way through my workout, Spark kicked in. Usually, I get tired midways through my workout. With Spark, I wasn’t tired at ALL. I had so much fun. I wanted to keep going. I felt like a Zumba instructor. It was AWESOME. I immediately asked Jenn how much Spark was. She was so gracious, she called me with her mentor, Keisha and gave me all the details about Advocare and Spark. Next payday, guess what I am doing? Starting my 24 day challenge. I can’t wait. Before and after pics coming soon to blogs near you. : ) I was 202 when I started my weight loss and fitness goals. I am now 186. I have been stuck there for a while but am losing the belly fat and starting to build lean muscle. The 24 day challenge will get me looking good for Thanksgiving which is GREAT because my sissy and I are taking photos at that time. : ) My daughter will be with me too!!! She’ll see the difference as well. I am 100% medless for the last two days and I have never felt better. : ) No more Bipolar disorder, no more depression, no more pain. Yay! I know what to do to be victorious now. Time to take everything to the next level. I got invited by Jenn to go away to Dallas this weekend. I really, really, really wanna go. : ) I only have to pay like 43 bucks to stay in a 3 star hotel with food included. I have a ride n gas paid for. Please God provide me a good sitter for the boys on Friday at 4-5:30 pm.
Hi! I’d like to introduce myself and tell ya a little about me. My name is Coach Crystal D aka Blog Talk Radio’s The Voice of Fibromyalgia. I am a Certified Life and Fibromyalgia Coach. I am currently in school to get my Bachelor’s in Psychology. I absolutely live to inspire other people and help them live their life to the fullest. I want the highest possible good for my clients, friends, family and of course my blog readers. What inspired me to become a life coach? I met a wonderful friend named Marla. We both suffer(ed) with debilitating chronic pain illnesses and decided that becoming coaches to support the chronically pain stricken was where God led us to go. Marla is RSD Coach Marla. And she suffers from RSD and many other pain issues. She is wonderful and I miss talking to her due to work. My practice is empty due to my clients living their own successful lives which make me happy. : ) I am currently taking applications for clients if you are interested; you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on my coaching practice, please visit my other site at http://livingpassionatecoach.wordpress.com. For now, I want to connect as people and tell my story. It all began 7 years ago. 7 years ago, I was a happy single parent of a highly functioning Autistic son. I was engaged to my dear hubby, Derrick. All was well in my world. I had just moved to Baird, Texas to start my new family. Then, I got a daily headache which only got worse so I headed to Abilene to the doctor. I was diagnosed with migraines and put on migraine medicine. I thought okay, no big deal. The pain then moved and settled in my neck and shoulders. I thought this is weird the pain is moving down. I went back to the doctor and was placed on muscle relaxers. They helped but then the pain moved to my back and legs. I had what I describe as a full body migraine. It was relentless and would not go away. It only got worse. I went to the Abilene Diagnostic Clinic and got diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. The pain grew so bad that I had to take Robaxin 750 mg every 6 hours. I went on to become an EMT, a Certified Nurse Aide and continued to work. I also had another child with this condition. When Isaac (now 5) was born, he and I literally lived on my coach for 6 months. I could laugh or smile I hurt so bad. One time I remember I laughed and Isaac got scared because he had never heard me laugh his entire life. I felt so bad. I went to school to become a life coach and love this profession. I did not have any support going through these times and that is why I offer it now. I suffered daily with this condition until this Monday when God finally set me free and healed me. As if the Fibro was not enough, I am also Bipolar. I’ve only had that diagnosis for 6 months. I have been a depressive person since my teens and twenties. I am 34 and proud now. Since turning 30, I feel I have really grown into my own skin. I like me for the first time in my life. I go to a wonderful Church named Champions Church. You can check us out online at http://www.champschurch.com. I encourage you to listen to the sermons as they are online weekly. I feel I am a healer. I heal hearts. I love that calling on my life and feel honored to do so. I am a good listener, I listen with my whole being and am very intuitive in the spirit. Because of many experiences like these, our church has a ministry/healing team which I have been trained for. I love it. That’s how I received my healing. I was deeply praying in my spirit for a friend of mine and God touched me too. Ministry goes both ways when you are praying for someone. God is such a loving and awesome person. I am so thankful for him being in my life. I have been saved for 10 years and have really gotten to know God well in the last 3. I am a children’s minister for 3-6 year olds and on the prayer team. As you can tell, I love to pray. It has set me free. I love music, books, painting, writing, kids, animals, talking, love people (most of the time). I tend to be shy. I love to make new friends so feel free to comment away. I have done public speaking on Blog Talk Radio and am trying to nail down a time frame in the afternoon to host my show again. I miss that. I am on Facebook and twitter. Please connect with me there as well. : ) Anyways, that’s me in a nutshell. Hope you enjoyed. If I can live a full, happy life, anyone can. No excuses.

Wow….So much has happened to me in the last 24 hrs. I got up early (5:30 am) yesterday and got my day started by completing my homework in my college English class. Then, I got my kids off to school. I had some much needed alone time with the Lord. The Lord spoke to me and said, “No more pain pills. No more Fibromyalgia. I have healed you. Welcome to a new life.” At first, I was amazed. I knew I was expecting this day for a long, long time. Part of me is super excited, the other a little scared. When you hurt head to toe all day and night every day, it’s hard to wrap your head and heart around not having pain. I went through the first day a little leary. I can honestly tell you that the pain tried to come back and Satan was trying to talk me out of my healing because he has done that to me before. All he is good for is to lie, kill, and destroy. First, he lies or spins the truth to where it is perverted, then he destroys the life he promises, then he will kill to stop the Gospel from being told. He is a real enemy. Thank God Jesus gave us weapons to use against him. He is a defeated foe. Tuesday was day two no more pain pills. Satan leaned against my body in a very fierce way. I almost caved and took a pain pill. Wednesday was the best day, Day 3 no pain pills. No pain AT ALL. Today, Thursday, October 13, 2011 is Day FOUR of NO pain pills. It was a very stressful day at work dealing with people and their lying mouths. I am praying over my jobs because the demonic has a very tight grip on that area of my life . I almost quit my job today over a LIE. I won’t get into all that…just know it was soooo stressful. I hold my tension and stress in my neck and shoulders lower back too. I missed my pain pills but am standing firm for the healing. You see, my message to the world is God loves you, he is not mad at you; you do not have to “perform” to “win” God’s love. It’s unconditional, undeserved, free love. Writing this blog really helps the tension go down. I can feel the emotions releasing all ready. Thank you for being here with me. I’m really painfully shy in person until I get to know ya. Then, we are family from that point on. Today at work showed me that I really do need to focus on getting my coaching practice filled so I can live the dream I want to live. I’m tired of being stepped on, kicked around, told she’s got no value, and living someone else’s vision for my life or other people thinking they have the right to place a low value on me just because I am new somewhere and don’t fit in. I kinda like not “fitting in” because I don’t agree with the main stream media anyways. I am unique, one of a kind, precious in God’s eyes and so are you. I am soooo tired because I only got two hours of sleep last night. : ) I am going to go relax, take a nice warm bath tonight and just chillax. : 0 ) Awww….Beautiful Thursday. Fridays are my FAVORITE days. : )
Most Mondays I am begging for MORE SLEEP. I have been down and out for at least 3 months now. Working at a totally new line of work tends to aggrevate my depression. You see, I am on the infinite roller coaster in life….I am Bipolar and more on the depressive side. I have had episodes of psychosis the last couple of days which always freaks me out. I went to MHMR on Friday and they said I am on the right track. People in my life tell me different. Who am I gonna believe? Ultimately….God. I choose to believe that he heals people even whenyour body tells you differently or in this case mine. I have noticed in the Bible that most of the prophets were discouraged often, had some kind of depression and ran from God ALOT. Is this really psychosis or am I just seeing into the Spirit? I guess God will let me know. I woke up in the most awesome mood. My mom, hubby, kids and have been working on getting our house uncluttered. It feels so good to have the house in order. Ahhhh….I get to relax. We are supposed to go to some of our friend house tonight. We are waiting for the call back. Guess I will call it a wonderful day and be thankful.
Welcome to my Depression and Fibromyalgia blog. I keep this blog to share my l ife with the world. I am a mental health advocate, fellow sufferer, and concearned citizen of this planet. I am a Christian by faith so when I write, sometimes, that is the view I am coming from. It’s not something I just “do”, it’s something I try my very best at doing and having the rich relationship with the Lord and others that is needed to live a courageous and victorious life. : ) Tomorrow, I will write a little more about myself. Until then, Be Blessed.
