Felicia Fibro - Life with fibromyalgia, EMPOWERED!

Common Topics

Fibromyalgia Awareness + Mother’s Day!

When I looked at the calendar this year I was happily surprised to find out that my first Mother’s Day as a mother was ALSO National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day! May 12th will be a pretty big day for me this year. Having fibromyalgia effects how I parent and being a mom effects how I deal with my fibromyalgia. They are two parts of my life that can never be separated. Well, until they figure out a cure!

I paired up with to create an ecard that can be sent to mothers living with fibromyalgia. You can send other ecards from their site, starting Friday. To elaborate on my quote from the ecard I’d like to say our children obviously will see the challenges fibromyalgia presents in our lives. Through that they will hopefully learn to be caring and empathetic to other’s struggles. More than that though they will see how we overcome our obstacles and still have wonderfully fulfilling, empowered lives. This will teach them resilience and tenacity. To me, these are invaluable lessons and the opportunity to share them is one of the silver-linings we can find through living with chronic illness.

Being a mom is tough and being a mom with fibromyalgia is even tougher! I encourage you to acknowledge this and lift up a mother you know that is living with fibromyalgia this National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day+Mother’s Day by sending her an ecard! To share my ecard, just send them an email with this link to the larger image: with a special note from you!

What do you hope others can learn from seeing you live with fibromyalgia?
