What message do you believe is important regarding fibromyalgia awareness? What do you want to share? And, what information do you wish someone would share with you?
Here’s another thought. What would you like others to know (and feel) if they could step into your fibromyalgia shoes?
Here are the three key points I’d like to share in the interest of Fibromyalgia Awareness. At the end of this post, I have a sweet offer. I’ve written a very popular letter about fibromyalgia (I’m so grateful for shares!). It explains things in a simple and easy to understand way. You can download this letter to share with anyone (friends, family, co-workers, doctors, practitioners, and acquaintances) who could benefit from a better understanding of what you deal with every day.
Take a gander at my three Fibromyalgia Awareness points and then grab your free letter that explains fibromyalgia to others so you can share.
ONE: When it comes to Fibromyalgia, Everyone’s an Expert
And, that’s the truth.
You ARE an expert in you. You know, better than anyone, what’s working and what isn’t.
You’re the only one who can choose to pay attention to every burp, sniffle, spasm, and pain that goes on in your body. Paying attention to symptoms is the first step, and tracking them takes this awareness to the next level.
This accumulated info helps to paint a portrait of what’s going on in your chronic illness body. Track your reactions to foods, surrounding environments, external exposures, and even to others who influence you.
These all have an impact.
Learning how YOUR body reacts is the first step in becoming your own fibromyalgia expert.
