My Life with Fibro is Growing: My Weekly Routine

I was supposed to write about my Tuesday e-mail last week, but I didn’t.  And now, I’ve decided it’s best not to.  I’ll give you one hint… #wellsphere.  Basically, many other bloggers summed up the ordeal with great tact and all seems to have been set right.  Therefore, I’ve decided to let bygones be bygones and finally introduce something else exciting:


I’ve finally established my weekly routine, and will be rolling out the first installment this Sunday (more details coming tomorrow, and this time I mean it).  This new routine will have me writing a post most days of the week… with a special emphasis each day.  I’d like to say it’s purely for your enjoyment, but to be frank, that’s a lie.  The most effective way I manage my fibromyalgia is by managing my routine.  Why should my blogging be any different?

In other news, thank you for being such a wonderful reader!  I appreciate your input and your consistency.  You motivate me to learn, to open up, and to rededicate myself to improving my health and my quality of life.  Please let me know if there is a topic that interests you.  I am currently working on two posts inspired by readers like you and I’d love to get some more recommendations!

    I do have a recommendation for you. I too am a writer, and I put off writing about my experiences with fibro for many years because it was a pain — really. Every time I sat downt to write about being in pain, my pain level increased. I’d write an article and feel extra-sore afterward. I found it easier to not write about fibro at all.

    Just thinking about fibro or pain adds weight to the shoulders like a heavy sweater. I tell people that fibro in my neck and shoulders feels like putting on the lead apron before getting X-Rays.

    Anyway, think of your “writing fibro” as a sweater that you’ll take off after every writing session. When you finish a post, say you’re done with fibro for the day and shake it off. Do a few shoulder/neck rolls. Shake out your limbs. Then plan for your day as being pain-free.

    What I’m saying is leave your pain at the keyboard when you finish. You don’t have to carry it with you everywhere you go. The mind is an amazing healer!

    I recently chose to do a research paper on fibro since i have it i thought it would be a great topic for my English class. I was wrong evr since i started this topic i get to the point where its like i can’t stand talking about it. I have enough issues with it as it is. I hope for a way to control this someday.
