{Guest Post} From Pain to Purpose: How I Became the “Grocery Geek”

Please welcome Christy Pooschke, owner and operator of Grocery Geek. I asked Christy to share her amazing story of overcoming Fibromyalgia. I hope it will encourage you as much as it did me.


All of my life, all I’ve wanted to do is to help people. I can remember sneaking out to the TV room late at night when I was a little girl and watching those shows where you can adopt a starving child in Africa for a few bucks each month…and pretty much save their life. I used to sit there and cry watching those poor children with bugs crawling all over them, and I so wished that my parents would “adopt” them. Even at a young age, it was hard for me to see that there were people out there who were hungry and sick and suffering; and I just couldn’t accept that there could be such injustices in the world. I desperately wanted to DO something to help them!
