About Me

Hi! I'm Selena from Oh My Aches & Pains!
Hi there!  Visiting me because of my work to #savepetsociety? Head here to read more about it: Where #savepetsociety is Taking Me.

I'm the ultimate ChronicBabe -- a  leukemia cancer survivor who is living with late effects like Hepatitis C, type 2 diabetes and dysautonomia and who developed chronic myofascial pain, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue after a trip-and-fall.

That's right -- I’m a sick chick and have been for the last 26 years of my life.

I was diagnosed with the blood cancer leukemia at the age of 22.  Eighteen years later, the doctors finally confirmed what I already knew: cancer treatment left me with late and long term health problems, including dysautonomia, chronic Hepatitis C infection and related type 2 diabetes, as well as infertility and early menopause.

I used to say, "For a healthy person, I sure have a lot of health problems!"

Then I became disabled in 2004 when daily chronic debilitating pain and fatigue became a part of my life.

Here at Oh My Aches and Pains! (OMA&P!) I write about my adventures learning to live my best life despite chronic illnesses.  I share my journey with you, my readers, to pass along the lessons I learn to inspire you to live your best life despite chronic illness too.  My blogging goal is to make life more fibro-friendly one post at a time.

Along the way, I'm becoming an expert at successfully managing multiple chronic illnesses.

Your comments and questions are always encouraged and welcomed.
