Severe Fibromyalgia Will Not Stop Michael Duturbure From Climbing Macchu Pichu To Raise “Fibro” Awareness

July 13, 2012

In 2003, Fibromyalgia (Fibro) started taking over my body. My body went into full spasm and became so tight that it twisted and dislocated my jaw. I could barely walk for two years and have suffered from chronic pain and fatigue for almost 10 years now. My ribs pop out of joint and I have been told to expect a possible diagnosis of arthritis during the early part of age 30.

Some people say that Fibro doesn’t exist. I am here to say it does. Unfortunately, disease can be symptomatic of something else. In my case, I believe my Fibromyalgia was likely caused by working too much in a job that required repetitive movements. I will never engage in the 60-long hours of work a week, for months on end, ever again!

My campaign at Just, is meant to inspire arthritis and Fibro sufferers, and be mindful that anything is possible even with a chronic debilitating condition. I support the Fibromyalgia cause, because I am one of the many who suffer from its debilitating symptoms. I want to achieve something by pushing through my disease and climb to the top of a mountain in Peru.  Please support me in my ‘March to Macchu Pichu’ and support FibroAction.
