My Battle With Fibromyalgia: Some Days I'm Crippled With Pain But I Won't Let It Hold Me Back

My battle with Fibromyalgia: Some days I am crippled with pain but I won't let it hold me back
'Sometimes the pain can be so bad I can't move, other times I’m just so tired that I can't wake up'
Some days her body aches from head to toe but this "warrior" refuses to let it rule her life.
At the age of 19, Charlotte was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia - a rare condition that causes pain all over the body.
She had already battled a number of health issues during her teenage years and says coming to terms with her diagnosis was tough.
It has forced her to pull out of university three times, once due to bullying because of her condition. She also had to leave a job she loved because she could not fulfil the role requirements.
But despite her often daily struggles she says she is proud of what she has and will achieved - and she says she won't let it ruin her life.
"If you saw me, you wouldn’t know anything was wrong," she says.
"I may look okay, but I’m very good with putting on a mask."
