I am the writer and creator at Being Fibro Mom and My Fibro Journal. I am a follower of Christ, wife to a supportive husband, mother to four sweet children, and fibromyalgia thriver. Being Fibro Mom was created in 2013 in the hopes of helping fibromyalgia sufferers become fibromyalgia thrivers. My mission is to change the mantra “you don’t look sick” and replace it with knowledge, understanding, compassion, and healing.

Hello! I’m Kristine (a.k.a. ‘Red) from ‘A Life Well Red’.
In December of 2014 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS). It was then the true genesis of my website was formed. I sought out, and found millions of people living with, and suffering through what are called ‘invisible’ chronic illnesses.
These are the diseases that go widely unrecognized, and are often unacknowledged because we don’t ‘look’ sick. And yet, they are anything but invisible to us, and to the ones we love.
It is my goal to continue to bring legitimacy and understanding to these conditions that affect tens of millions of people all around the world. With a focus on; educating with facts, healthy living, and (hopefully) humor, I invite you to come along with me, as we strive to find beauty and grace living this life with ‘invisible’ chronic illness.
