My Fibro Journal

When I first started on my road to recovery and healing with fibromyalgia and chronic pain, my physician and therapist recommended that I keep a journal. A journal to track my pain as well as my thoughts at the end of each day. It’s a way for me to release any emotions from the day and send them into the universe. A way to empty the burdens, negative energy, or any other emotion to be rid of them in order to reduce stress and my overall pain. My Fibro Journal.

I have decided to share my journal with my readers. A way for this fibro mom to be raw and real with my readers to reveal that we all struggle, celebrate, and embrace our ups and downs.

Please understand that everyone is different in their journey with fibromyalgia and/or chronic illness. This is my journey, my stories, my vulnerability to share with you in order to help in some way. It is in no way to compare my journey with yours or to minimize your pains, feelings, or experiences.

In return, I ask for you to also not minimize my pains, feelings or experiences, and for you to be open-minded and open-hearted to anyone living with a chronic illness.

    Thank you for sharing and being transparent. I also suffer from fibromyalgia. Being a mom with chronic pain is really hard. And so many people don’t understand an illness like fibro because it’s not something you can see.

    Your willingness to share encourages others of us who have to deal with this. 🙂

      Thank you for taking your time to read my journal. My mom suffers from fibromyalgia as well and it’s not something she talked about for the longest time. I remember her being in so much pain, but not speaking about it. I did the same in the beginning. I feel as though that hurts us, physically and emotionally. Exposing my journal for others is a way for me inspire others to talk about it – those living with a chronic illness and those that take care of loved ones with a chronic illness.

      If you would like to share you story with my readers and me, please contact me. I’d love to have you as a guest. Gentle hugs, fibro friend!

    I too suffer from chronic pain but mine is related to my back. It is difficult to deal day in and out with an invisible illness. I want to thank you for sharing this! Being so open, to share this, is inspirational.

      Thank you for taking the time to read my words. It is very difficult to deal with every day. A lot of my pain stems from my back, too, and it doesn’t help that your back is the pathway for your nerves to relay the pain to your brain. It makes existing back pain worse.

      I hope you continue to read my journal and share with others. We need to spread the information and awareness about invisible illnesses. Gentle hugs, friend!

    Your journal entries are honest and clear–allowing others to see how vulnerable you are and that it is okay. Thank you also for allowing our Lord to be a part of your. Journey.

    I am completing a memoir about my struggle with polio and post-polio. Most of my symptoms are chronic pain and chronic fatigue. I hope to communicate to others who are dealing with invisible illnesses. I was very pleased to discover your Fibro Journal and hope I can be a part of creating awareness of the struggles and of the various ways to cope successfully. Thank you for your courage and willingness to share!!!

      Thank you for reading, Alice! Publishing My Fibro Journal entries is an up and down battle. Some days I want to publish my entries, and other days I do not based on their content. It’s a bit vulnerable for me to have my daily thoughts and emotions on display for the world. In response, I publish weeks (and sometimes months) after the entry so I don’t feel as exposed. Good luck with your memoir, and let me know how it goes!

    Thank you for sharing this. I was diagnosed almost a year ago. I can handle almost anything, but the fibro fog really gets me. Mom Brain + Fibro Fog = Lots of Pizza Nights! Keep on keeping on! Hugs!

      Haha We get lots of pizza nights, too! My kids love that part of the deal! The not remembering or having trouble thinking is hard to deal with. Thank you for reading and taking the time to visit my corner of the online fibro community.
