I chose to name this post, Fibro Friends for a couple of reasons. Fibromyalgia can be a lonely experience if you let it. Pain is an equalizer that no one likes to endure but it is vitally important to remember to push yourself. Connect with your friends. You may also find many of your friends are experiencing the same symptoms. Sharing with each may lead to additional helps and resources. Recently, a fibro friend introduced me to a product called, Thera Cane. It is a tool that can be incorporated in your arsenal. A companion book is, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. Both used together may offer some relief to those aggravating knots. Trigger point massage/therapy has been around for some time.
Having fibromyalgia doesn't mean you have to give up your hobbies. Explore new hobbies. Keep your mind active. I recently have become interested in wood carving. Find something within your skill set and interests. Developing new hobbies will lead to new friends. Above all keep looking up.
