  Enroll in Course

Are you determined to conquer chronic pain fatigue, insomnia, fibromyalgia?

Do you want to take action to reduce the impact these symptoms have on your life today?

To sleep better, calm your central nervous system, make the most of your energy, manage your pain, make healthy lifestyle choices and craft your vision of thriving despite chronic illness?

Can you imagine a future where you have your symptoms managed, you have balanced your personal symptom vs functionality equation, you're achieving your goals and you are consistently thankful for how far you have come?

Nearly eight years ago I was in a place of just barely surviving, you know the drill; severe pain and fatigue levels, very little sleep, and no idea how to make any of it better.

I didn't know:

  • that I could do anything about it
  • that my doctor didn't know anymore than I did
  • what I could do to help myself
  • that there were so many other people living the same experience as me (I knew no one who had a chronic illness)

Even if I did know, I did not have the ability to find the resources, implement them and then track what was or wasn't working.

It took me a very long time and a lot of trial and error to get to where I am now – thriving despite fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. Every single piece of learning was hard won. I had to find the information, check it all out, try it for myself, track my progress and then figure out what worked. It has taken years.

I want to kick-start your fight so that it doesn’t take so long for you.

What will joining this team get me?

  • Support and understanding
  • Curated information and research to quick-start your personal information gathering.
  • Step by step how to create your own:
    • Sleep plan
    • Pain management strategy
    • Goals - including tackling simple, sustainable habits
    • Mindfulness practice
    • Pacing plan
    • Pre-pregnancy preparation kit
    • and more!
  • Access to a coach who has done all of these things herself and halved her own pain levels in the past decade.
  • First and exclusive access to new resources added monthly.

Easily accessible information, options and help with planning.

“I’ve started your courses! LOVE them. You are clearly knowledgeable, confident, friendly and have a desire to help.” - Lisa

In addition to this you get:

  • New content added monthly.
  • The ability to suggest subject areas and new content ideas.
  • Access to the course-related forums so you can chat through ideas related to the courses.

If you were to purchase the courses and resources separately you would pay hundreds of dollars.

What about community support?

  • You will also get membership in the exclusive Kickstart Group where we work together on goals and plans and your journey. You get the value of the participants (we all have unique knowledge and experience to share) AND Melissa as a coach, mindfulness practitioner and someone who has taken herself from miserable to thriving despite fibromyalgia.
  • Group coaching sessions in the group where you can submit your questions and have them answered. All questions are fair game and privacy is fully respected.
  • A Q&A corner where previous Q&A videos are stored for easy access.

Research nerd alert: the research suggests the biggest benefit of coaching for fibromyalgia comes from the relationship and support between coach and coachee - imagine adding the benefit of the team supporting each other too? And all of the resources on offer?

“I think it was exceptional. I am dealing with the idea that this will never go away. I think that is my biggest struggle. Other ailments or conditions I have had in the past there has been an operation or cure. It's a bit overwhelming on my flare days.” - Fibro Fighter

Why are you offering this?

You deserve to make your vision for thriving despite chronic pain and fatigue, and you deserve to achieve it. Make use of my strategies and resources to help you in your journey.

We are all unique, so I don't know how far you will go but I know for sure you can improve your quality of life if you put your mind to it.

You told me that accessibility is important – being able to access a program as and where you are. In your pajamas with a heat pack in bed? Via headphones with your cellphone on the bus on the way to work? In five minute snippets between work/parenting/life?

You told me that it can be difficult for us to make and keep appointments - this way you can get all of the support without the stress of trying to be somewhere at a certain time.

We know that chronic pain and fatigue are complex issues that require many puzzle pieces which are unique to each person. It will take time. Use your precious energy for doing the work not for trying to gather the information and figure out the processes to track your progress.

How do I get in on this??

Simply enroll now!

Your investment is just $30 USD per month for founding members! Annual membership plans receive a month FREE.

The cost of the courses, resources and tools you immediately gain access to is over $300. Add to that the incalculable value of the support and time saved. Plus the content I am already planning for the next year. The earliest members have told me that the price is crazy low and they would pay more for these resources, so the founding membership price won't be around forever.

This is the most affordable way for you to gain access to all of these resources and for me to be able to keep creating them for you. As well as for you to be able to tell me the area you most want to learn about next.

Try it for a month and see how you like it. I feel sure you will find value in it. If not, simply cancel your membership.

What can you guarantee?

Let’s be real: The level of benefit depends on the amount of effort you put in. I can give you the tools, the information and support, but I cannot do the work for you.
I am a coach, not a medical professional and I can’t guarantee more than that I will make the best resources I can, come alongside you and help you do the work – and I will do this! I have created the best content possible to equip you on your journey. Because that is the most anyone can do. Day to day, it’s on you.

A note - this program is not meant to diagnose or treat you. That is between you and your medical team. My work is meant to equip you to take control of your journey so that you reach your definition of thriving despite fibromyalgia as fast as possible.

How does it work?

As soon as you enroll you will have access to all of the resources listed. Simply click on the course you want to start with and follow the easy to follow instructions. They are all designed with you in mind, in easily digestible chunks with the worksheets to go alongside the videos.

Do check in with your medical team. Do follow your intuition. This is about you developing yourself as the head of your wellness committee.

I will put you on the email list so you know as soon as new content has arrived, get your opportunity to request new content areas and basically know all things Kickstart Group. You will also be invited to the Kickstart Group exclusive Facebook group for the team supportive goodness. I am so excited for this!

There is a lot of information and resources here, I feel like I don't know where to begin...

You can approach it two ways - start at the beginning and work your way through (taking your time).

Or check out the options and see what resonates. Have you been really wanting to work on your sleep? Start with Sleep and Fibromyalgia 101. Have you been curious about utilising mindfulness to help you calm that butterfly feeling in the pit of your stomach, help you sleep, manage pain and more? Start with Mindfulness for the Chronic Life course. Do you need a quick win? Start with the healthy habits challenge.

Still unsure? Send me an email!

What is coming up?

A little bit about Melissa

I have been sharing my journey and creating resources to help you fight chronic pain and fatigue for several years. I have created quite a repository of digital tools, resources and informational products - all to try to help you make your journey shorter than mine.

I lost so much of my life waiting for a diagnosis, waiting for a doctor to help, waiting for research to show me what to do and then trying all the things.

Now I:

  • Have reduced my pain levels by half
  • Dramatically reduced my fatigue levels
  • Sleep 100 times better
  • Have three healthy children (all five years old and under)
  • Experience less brain fog, less anxiety, less digestive symptoms
  • Am thankful every single day

I did it the hard way. Now you can do it the easier way. There are no magic buttons, no cures and no easy fixes. But there is the research and learning of those who have gone before. There is also the support here - something that I was sorely lacking earlier in my journey.

My blog, Melissa vs Fibromyalgia is featured as one of Healthline’s Top 19 Fibromyalgia Blogs of 2019. My YouTube channel was also included in Feedspot’s Top 15 Fibromyalgia YouTube Channels list. I have written two books: Melissa vs Fibromyalgia: My Journey Fighting Chronic Pain, Fatigue and Insomnia and Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia. I facilitate two Facebook groups: Melissa (you) vs Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Pregnancy and Parenting with Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia. In addition I have created a free micro course and the Fibromyalgia Framework Workbook.

More importantly I am a chronic pain, chronic fatigue and insomnia fighter. I have developed and lived these strategies. You will see from my work that I practice what I preach, I am dedicated to living well despite myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia so I can be the best mama and wife I can be. Every day I am thankful for the progress I have made and I want that for you too.

Email me! [email protected] I'd love to hear your suggestions!
What is a coach?
Coaching a partnership between coach and client where the coach supports, encourages and provides accountability while the client works toward their goals - in this case improving chronic pain, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and overwhelm. Where the coach has special knowledge, as I do with the "chronics" and mindfulness through lived experience and research, they may provide more direction. But the client is ALWAYS in charge. Coaching is NOT therapy. I am not a qualified health professional. My aim is to empower you to take control of your journey. If you need help with mental health issues or counselling please contact a local agency.
Do you use the "c" word?
No. I never use the word cure. There is no current replicable cure for fibromyalgia. I offer a way to help you take control and improve your quality of life despite your symptoms. They may improve, as mine have, but I still live with chronic pain, fatigue and insomnia every single day, but the level I experience them has decreased. I genuinely utilise all of the things I tell you that I do.
If I have read everything available on melissavsfibromyalgia.com will this programme be useful?
Yes! There is content here that has never appeared on the blog, the templates and worksheets and audios are not available on the blog. The blog is a basic start for your journey, this programme is your level-up!
