A Painful Awakening, Living with Fibromyalgia

As a remote online support specialist, Joseph knew his job wasn’t physically demanding. And yet, he was always trying to rub the tension out of his arms and legs, and his lower back would usually be sore (sometimes agonizingly so) when he finally clocked out at the end of the day. Things finally reached a breaking point shortly after Joseph turned 37. Though his pain had been getting worse for several years, it had never prevented Joseph from doing his job. He decided to consult his doctor for tests only after his performance at work began to suffer. ...

The Impact Of COVID-19 On Anxiety Disorders

To say there are misconceptions about anxiety disorders is an understatement. Oftentimes, the general public holds the impression that those with anxiety disorders simply need to relax to solve their problems. That enough yoga or meditation will cure them of their mental illness, and that it’s rooted in a frame of mind. The reality however, is far more complex. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is the broadest anxiety disorder in its class, and, consequently, the most prevalent, affecting approximately 3% of the general population annually.

A Day In The Life With Lyme Disease

Lyme disease has recently been brought into the public eye by celebrities such as Avril Lavigne, Shania Twain, and Justin Bieber. It’s an often misdiagnosed illness due to the misconception that it’s easily detectable by a bullseye-shaped rash that only actually appears in roughly 50% of cases, and because the symptoms of the condition (over 50 of them) can occur within days, months, or even years of infection. What’s more is that few people understand just what happens to someone diagnosed with Lyme disease.  Lilly, one of our recent clients with Lyme disease, was...

Denied Due to Lack of Evidence

Wayne enjoyed his work as a digital marketing strategist, but he would not have described the job as a physically demanding one. He started to rethink that stance after his health took a turn for the worse when he turned 35. At first, his symptoms were relatively minor. He might be tired one day and sore on another, but for the most part it just felt like an extension of the regular aches and pains that most people dealt with during their adulthood. Unfortunately, those symptoms gradually became more intense over the course of several months. Before long, Wayne was...
