My bio from the IFCI graduation page
Chantal was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in November 2018. The following spring and summer, she experienced exceptionally low lows and needed to change her life.
Chantal became motivated to attend college, for the first time, in the fall 2019. Around this time, Chantal discovered the Fibromyalgia Podcast and found inspiration.
This fall, Chantal will be returning to college. She will be taking Indigenous Wellness and Addictions Prevention. Her goal is to become a Fibromyalgia Coach who specializes in addiction and abuse prevention for all women, within her community.
I'm Pinterest Famous
Tami added the graduates on facebook & pinterest.
Today is National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day and today, I started the Fibromyalgia Advisor program through The International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute.
I had my admissions interview with Tami Stacklehouse on May 1st and I was a little star struck. I did get over the awe and talking with her was like talking to an old friend and the conversation was wonderful. I discovered Tami through her amazing podcast last summer, when I was somewhere in my lowest moments: Tami's cheerful, encouraging, and inspiring podcasts helped me start believing in myself and big changes happened last August.
After my interview, I felt so positive and ready to celebrate my next achievement: we got Twiggs for dinner and enjoyed our patio and delicious foods.
I like to remember my timeline: that I had my admission interview on Friday, May 1, accepted and paid my tuition on May 4th, and started my program on Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. All (or most) milestone days in May!

A devastating beauty with a fiery personality. Part lover, part fighter.
Chantals know how to make it rain. Your life is incomplete if you lack a Chantal. A completely magical girl.
