Fibromyalgia Is...


Fibromyalgia is… chronic pain.

Fibromyalgia is… constantly being tired.

Fibromyalgia is… numerous sleepless nights.

Fibromylagia is… being unable to complete tasks.

 

Fibromylagia is… listening to Garth Brook’s song “Much Too Young to Feel This Damn Old” on repeat, commiserating with the song title.

Fibromyalgia is… cancelled plans.

Fibromyalgia is…a complete lack of energy.

Fibromyalgia is… watching friends step back and distancing themselves.

Fibromyalgia is… not wanting to get out of bed.

Fibromyalgia is… forgetfulness.

Fibromyalgia is… having to validate that the condition is real.

Fibromyalgia is… not “all in my head.”

Fibromyalgia is… real.

Fibromyalgia is… no longer going to dictate my life.
