About Adriel

Adriel has suffered from bouts of widespread pain, fatigue, depression, and anxiety since childhood.

In 2010, at the age of 22, she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. She has struggled since then with finding the best treatment for her symptoms and is always in pursuit of living a more natural life.

Adriel went on to have two sons with her husband and they now live near Houston, TX. She does her best to make the most of her life, in spite of having a chronic illness. She enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, and blogging about what life with fibromyalgia is really like.
