Felicia Fibro - Life with fibromyalgia, EMPOWERED!

Common Topics

Welcome to!

I want to elaborate on why I’ve started this blog a little more than in my About Me section. Since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia 9 years ago I have constantly had my eyes and ears open for information that can help elevate my quality of life. Giving up on the joys of life is simply not an option that I see. I have found it somewhat hard to find first hand accounts about fibromyalgia that are positive in nature. Sure, there are some articles out there in Fibromyalgia Aware (was later discontinued) and Arthritis Today, but I like the instant gratification of online info. I hope you will find the personal accounts, tips and information that I share to be positive and helpful.

Although my main focus is to help others with fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions, I also hope to raise awareness. The more awareness there is, the more understanding and empathy from others, research and solutions will come. I have seen the impact on these in the last decade and it gives me great hope for what the future will hold!

So, join me on my quest to live a happy, successful life with minimal pain! I welcome your comments, as I aim to have a site that will helpful to us all.

I’m glad we could connect too! Do you use Twitter? There is a huge community of support for those with chronic conditions there, using the hashtag #spoonie. I’m @FeliciaFibro if you do use it.

My first encounter with Fibro was around 18 years ago. I didn’t know what was going on with me or my Physician. He sent me to a Rheumatoid Specialist which thought I might have Lupus…but no sign of the “red-face slapped” look. I had much difficulty in walking and global pain. As soon as it came, it left to revisit August 2011-December 2011. Now with the new awareness of Fibro I was able to glean much info on the web. All my symptoms matched up! Of course. This past flare up died down and raised it’s head mid Jan. 2012. I am in the process of educating myself right now and hopefully find a Dr. who will believe me. I was referred to another Rheu. female Dr. who is very holistic in her approach. I agreed with her theory that my abusive childhood environment and abusive marriage of 33 years has played a huge part. She did acknowledge my pain/symptoms, but would not attach the term Fibro to what I was experiencing.
I have found several wonderful sights such as yours that I am very grateful for. I can’t wait to spend the next few days visiting. God Bless.
Eternally grateful!

Hello my name is Christina I am 36 years old married to a wonderful man & have a beautiful 6 year old daughter. I was diagnosed with Fibro a little over 3 months ago. So thankful to have found your blog. It’s nice to know there are people who can relate. I’ve recently been in the mourning stage & having I guess what you would call a pitty party for myself. Mourning the old life I had and the energy. I have been on Short term disability from work and not sure if I can even go back at this point. First they diagnosed me with Hashimotos then when my levels came back normal they determined it was Fibro. I’m learning to take one day at a time.
