Carol's story

I completed two degrees, I was the first female credit manager in the freight and liquor industries in Queensland, and I had a busy social life – before the pain began and wouldn't go away.

Rachael's Story

I went from feeling like I'd been hit by a truck every morning, and unable to work, to lifting a woman above my head as part of a circus troupe – due to a combination of my own determination and the healing power of yoga.

Juanita's story

For me, living with fibromyalgia means every day is a challenge, as I am in a constant state of pain.
