Fibromyalgia Recovery Story

Leah E. McCullough, affectionately known as The Fibro Lady, has lectured nationally and been interviewed on the Internet and television to share her fibromyalgia recovery story.  She recovered her health in a very short period of time from severe, debilitating fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, IBS, PTSD, infertility and morbid obesity.  She went on to lose over 100 pounds and is currently training for the Air Force Half-Marathon.

Leah has made it her mission in life to let others know that recovery from the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia is possible and that what a person feels who has this disease is not “all in your head”.

She gives hope to those who have been told to “live with it”, and charts out her recovery in several easy to understand steps that she still adheres to in her daily life today.  While there are no guarantees of recovery for anyone, Leah’s fibromyalgia recovery story shows how one very determined woman triumphed over a supposedly hopeless situation.

Fun, little-known facts about Leah:

  • Leah can say, “Please,” “Thank You” and “Bathroom” in at least 5 languages.  Although not fluent, she sometimes dreams in German.
  • While serving in the US Army Leah was the first woman to qualify on the Mark 19 Automatic, Belt-Fed Grenade Launcher.  She also qualified as a Sharp Shooter on the M16 Automatic Rifle.  The lady has wicked aim!
  • One of Leah’s favorite meals is Squid and Eggs.
