Fibromyalgia has a lot of misconceptions attached to it. What do you wish people understood about fibromyalgia?
I have anxiety about burdening people with too much pain... so if I avoid reaching out I may be trying to protect you from myself. If you can handle it, please reach out to me.
Has any one told you that "you don't look sick?"
Yes, or I am too young to have this condition or the many other invisible illnesses I have at 33 years of age (at least 3, up to 5, at a time). Fibro often runs with other conditions like anxiety (GAD & PTSD), depression, IBS, and low thyroid.
Tell us, who is your biggest support system while coping with fibromyalgia?
My self (my reiki practice, my yoga practice, biking regularly to tolerance), my dog Eli (cuddling with my dog, walking with him), and my husband (supporting my healthy habits).
