International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute:
Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor, Class of 2020
In May 2020, I enrolled in the International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute's Fibromyalgia Advisor program. The course began on Fibromyalgia Awareness day (May 12) and the program was three months long. During this time, I learned how to read and understand lab reports, I have a deeper understanding on thyroid and adrenal functions, fibromyalgia fog, and fatigue; and I worked with a coach who helped through some tough discussions, she was my cheerleader when I had to leave Canadore College because I became overwhelmed with my new reality during COVID-19 quarantine, and she reminded me of empowerment for myself and for my daughters.
Today, August 29, 2020, I graduated from IFCI's Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor program. It was a virtual ceremony called Stories of Hope and Healing.
