Awareness Day 2016

May is Fibromyalgia Awareness month, and May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. This is the time of the year that people, all around the globe, raise awareness for fibromyalgia and chronic pain through fundraising events, personal stories, online campaigns, and other ways. We share our success stories, and celebrate our accomplishments over fibromyalgia and chronic pain. We honor those we have lost, but also celebrate their accomplishments as well. We stand together to raise awareness of this invisible illness, and gather resources to find a cure.

Each year here at Being Fibro Mom, various fibromyalgia organizations, chronic illness bloggers, and national online companies come together to promote awareness through personal stories, informative articles, campaigns, product awareness, and giveaways.

In 2015, we had:

  • five giveaways
  • participated in six events
  • raised funds for the National Fibromyalgia Association via Swagbucks’ NFA charity page
  • shared numerous personal stories of success with fibromyalgia and chronic pain

Not only did normal website traffic double, but dozens of readers emailed me to say how much the awareness month informed them about this invisible illness. The emails sent to me were both encouraging and heartbreaking; however, the connection between diagnosis and hope for relief was made.
