Fibromyalgia is a bully

Fibromyalgia is a beast and a literal mean bully. It doesn’t stop picking on me and trying to kick me down. Today, while this is a late post, because you know…mom life….it is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.


Fibromyalgia is complete chronic widespread pain. Now as far as what causes it and cures and such….


What is known is that it does affect everyone differently…..

For me, it attacks my entire body. My skin feels like it’s on fire, and anything that brushes up against it hurts like I’m being stabbed with needles. Since there isn’t a cure, or pain relief, I just have to kind of endure it until the flare up goes away. I do use Epsom salt which does help, and use clothes from Raw Threads which is made from bamboo and it seems to be the only fabric not to affect my skin.

And of course, it brings along its BFF, the all-mighty migraine to the party which doesn’t help. But lately, it has been a mess. I don’t really talk about it much because I don’t want to seem like I am complaining or bothering anyone.


Fibromyalgia is always present. When I laugh, run, walk, and sleep….it’s there. Waiting. I never know what I will wake up to. I’m telling you but I do my best to hide it. While it does its best to hold me back, I do my best to fight back. Staying active is the best for ME because it actually keeps my chronic pains and migraine under control or at least at a tolerable level where I can “function.”


So while there are just a few hours left of Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, throw on your best purple, or save this post for next time to help bring awareness for this silent assault on the body we have to battle every day.
