About Chillens
Joined January 2017
I made a career in sales, working for various companies for about 25 years. I am a wife and mother of 3. I was diagnosed in 2005 with Fibromyalgia, something I had been suffering from (and my mother) since my teens, I just didn't know what it was, and neither did the doctors.

I cannot work outside of the home as I need to keep my own hours and take it easy when necessary, so I started a daycare in my home, and it is quite successful. However, I do not want to do this indefinitely, so I'm looking for something else.

Thanks for the follow - my story is very similar to yours so I fully understand what you're going through. I was diagnosed with ME 2 years ago and had to give up working outside the home too but this is something we can beat - it won't define us!! Best of luck and I wish you lots of success

Hi Michele, nice meeting you here, I would appreciate if you could follow me back. Thank you. Firstly, I am really sorry about your predicament. It's dreadful condition and most people do not understand it.
I wonder, if I may ask, what advice did you get from your doctors and what steps are you taking to help yourself?
I am just going to your website...
Warm regards and please keep in touch. Thank you.

Hi Tom, nice to meet you too.
The lack of understanding is the reason for my site. I want to give a personal perspective and gain insight through others' as well.
Light stretching exercises is what is mostly recommended. I am not one for medication, and thankfully, neither is my doctor. But one thing I will share with you that works wonders for me is 1 lowest dose Amitriptyline to help me sleep at night (it relaxes my fibers, otherwise, there's a party going on inside when I try to sleep, and sleep is so important), also, 1 to 2 lowest dose Nortriptyline also at night to help me with the daily ongoing pain. It's not a miracle, but it does work wonders for me. Plus I walk a lot.
Thank you for visiting my site. Hope to chat again.

Hello, Chillen: Thank you for following me. I was an aerobics instructor for 12 years and taught water aerobics for people who had Fibromyalgia. Warm water therapy was the only physical activity many people with Fibromyalgia could do without any comfort. Are you thinking about preparing a website with this subject in mind?
Wish you well in your efforts. Cordially, David
chillens Premium
And thank you, David. I love hearing people's stories and experiences regarding Fibromyalgia. And, yes, my website is all about it. Although still quite new, I have made some headway on my site and plan to hopefully make it worthwhile for people. It is funny, there is a lot of info out there about FM, but mostly from medical sites, not from a personal perspective, and that is what my site is going to be all about. I hope you check it out. Any feedback would certainly be greatly appreciated, and I would do same for you. Best wishes, Michele

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1990, unfortunetly one of my daughters inherited (?) the tendency and is in her early 40s. It is tough and frustrating with so many different symptoms, and the fact that you look well. I want to thank you for the follow and hope you have good luck.
chillens Premium
Apologize for the late reply. I want to thank you for sharing. I have found times of temporary 'remission' if you will. Yes, largely inherited. Watched my mother suffer and the doctors telling her she was crazy, she was never diagnosed, but our symptoms are identical...different times. Made it my purpose to research and test for myself, to become an expert because I care about my health and everyone else out there who is suffering silently, thinking there is no hope, because, frankly, the doctors don't know much, many won't even see you for that purpose because they are perplexed, and there aren't any real specialists. I hope my website helps out some people.

Hi Chillens, Thanks for the follow, much appreciated. Welcome to premium WA. Now is the time to map out your priority and reschedule your time to focus on the training and tutorials so that you can build a website in your niche. If you have any questions just raise it and the supportive community will help. Best wishes in this new venture which will eventually grow a passive income online. [Kelsey]

Hey Michele, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/parre/blog/boom-goes-the-dynamite-4-338-57-for-august

All good so far Matt. Now a premier member. Just about to move my siterubix to my new first domain. Excited. Enjoying the course and the community.
nathaniell Premium
Wow. You're moving fast Michele! Keep up the good work.

So I'm done level 1 of the course. Joining premium will get me level 2. What will I have to do to get all the levels to finish the course? Will there be yet another charge? Or will my premium membership get me all the courses? Need to know before I continue. Thanks and have a grand day.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Nathan, just built my website. My niche is Fibromyalgia, what do you think? Loving the tutorials so far. Wanting to make money...need to end my home daycare soonish. Think it's possible? I actually went to college for marketing. Do you think that will help?
nathaniell Premium
Of course it's possible to make money with your website! that's the whole point of the WA training :) It won't be "fast" or "easy", but if you follow the training and reach out for help when you need it, making money online is absolutely possible. I went through the same training as a newbie back in the day, and now I'm doing it full time.

Having an education in marketing will help too, although in the beginning I think the most important skills are going to be a willingness to take action and consistent work. Once you get some traffic flowing to your website, those marketing skills will come in handy to optimize your website for sales.
