The Lonely Journey – Finding Your Fibromyalgia SupportFeatured

Our journeys with Fibromyalgia are often long and very lonely.

It is difficult it seems for our loved ones, friends and colleagues to contemplate ever feeling so awful and wracked with pain when, in most cases you look surprisingly well. Doctors, if you get a sympathetic one, are busy and how do you pour your heart out in just the few minutes assigned to each patient? Finding your Fibromyalgia support network isn’t always easy.

Journaling to cope with life experiences

A life experience changes our way of thinking about ourselves and where we want to go. A life experience can be a medical diagnosis or an actual event we were involved in or saw. The experiences change the way we look at the world and ultimately ourselves.

How to Bounce, Bob and Roll Yourself to Fibromyalgia Fitness.

Making Fibro Fitness part of your Wellness Regime is easier than you think.

Do you make a point of including exercise and fitness into your Fibromyalgia wellness regime?

For those of us battling Fibromyalgia, with our varied painful symptoms and chronic fatigue, we could be forgiven for putting ideas of exercise to the bottom of our to do list. However, gone are the days of being diagnosed complete rest. Medical professionals are now actively encouraging Fibro warriors to get up and moving.

Having said that, nobody is suggesting that you head out and throw yourself into a half marathon. Nor sign up on the dotted line for the next Olympics.

Why exercise is so important when struggling with Fibromyalgia
