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.
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.

I think the journal is a great idea for any problem,in addition to Fibromyalgia.
Thank you for coming to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party.
Yes, it really is great for any reason. It’s a great way to reduce stress overall.
Thanks for stopping by!
Writing is so cathartic. I feel for you and others in chronic pain. I have bad pain in my Remicade days and I can hardly even focus on reading let alone writing or function as a SAHM. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday linkup. Tweeted and will pin to our linkup board tomorrow.
I go through periods of time where I don’t want to write and can’t focus on reading. I’m definitely not in that bout right now! haha I’ve read two books in the last couple of weeks and starting my third this weekend. That hasn’t happened in a long time.
Thanks for reading!
