Raising awareness about Fibromyalgia

I blog about living with the chronic pain condition Fibromyalgia. I try to raise awareness about this often misunderstood and underfunded invisible illness.  Recently the lovely Annette from the website The Fibronaut published one of my blog posts: Strategies for coping with a Fibromyalgia diagnosis.  http://thefibronaut.co.uk/featured/strategies-for-coping-with-a-fibromyalgia-diagnosis-by-claire-collopy/#fibro

Thanks Annette for all you do with raising awareness about Fibromyalgia 🙂

Please help us raise awareness by sharing this blog and visiting Annette’s fabulous website.

We can make this illness visible!

Keep smiling 🙂

    I have to say, that I’ve not really known about this before, but, I’m finding it is actually more common than I thought.

    it really is a silent disease. My sister in law is a bartender and suffers from this. The change in weather really effects here. Praying for a cure soon and more funding.


  12. I know a few people with fibro, it’s so horrible and a lot of people don’t realise how debilitating it can be 🙁

    I hadn’t heard of this illness until a couple of years ago when two of my friends were diagnosed after a very lengthy battle of going back and forth to the doctors. It’s incredibly debilitating for them to the point where some days they just can’t physically get up and about.
