Today I’d like to share Terri’s post where she has gathered a selection of posts to helps us thrive, not just survive with Fibromyalgia/CFS and she reminds us that

“May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.In fact, the whole month of May is dedicated to raising awareness of fibromyalgia.”

What could be more convenient as we continue to raise awareness than having all these dedicated bloggers and their blogs within easy reach!

The month is long, and lockdown longer still so we have the time and opportunity to educate ourselves a little more.  Happy reading and learning.

Fibromyalgia day… is everyday!



May 12th was Fibromyalgia awareness day…

Welcome to my Fibromyalgia awareness day post… yes, a few days late!  Why?

Simply because…

Fibromyalgia doesn’t play by the rules! It doesn’t respect you just because you plan to write a post for Fibromyalgia day…

Fibromyalgia is unpredictable and messes with your plans!

But, life still carried on and the world didn’t fall apart. So this is for all who live with Fibromyalgia as a companion …

Fibromyalgia is…

F athomless, it’s an

I illusive illness, that’s painful & perplex,

B oth ruthless and instructive,

R uins you

O r

M atures

Y ou,

A s it

L languishes or livens your soul;

G rab it to you, seek out its gifts

I nscribe your name on it, as you

A chieve your dreams & nothing less!

I’ve been working like a dog…

“Sleeping Beauty!”


…well I haven’t really, but sometimes it sure feels like it, particularly when I have a fibro flair or when there is some new or additional demanding situation, such as having my mum in hospital and needing daily visits.  But I’m going to follow Andy’s example, and enjoy my next blissfully relaxing nap!

Do you practice self-care? Do you enjoy a siesta or cat-nap (sorry Andy… dog-nap)?  What do you do to recharge your batteries?
