This belongs here.
This is so accurate
Can anyone relate? Cause I can
Not mine but I thought you would appreciate
Pretty sure we can all relate to this pigeon.
Thought of you guys. Repost from I forget which sub...
Someone shared this on Facebook and it was too relatable
Picture my wife sent me that she found. Sorry if repost.
Sorry demon lol
We Got This
Oh man this is too real
Being able to identify tiny, inexplicably painful things we're laying on is like our superpower.
What so many of us are saying and thinking..
A year ago I graduated from art school. My senior project was a photo series to “show” what it feels like to have an invisible illness. I just realized today that i should have shared it with the people who would get it the most! (I’m sorry the quality isn’t the best, I hope you can see it okay!)
Yesterday was Fibro Awareness day, I spent it painting all the pain I felt while painting it. Felt super uncomfortable to put it down on 'paper' for others to see, but I felt I needed to bring awareness to the actual pain we feel. Still feel like i'm being dramatic, but I know I'm not.... :/
My SDit helps me with my fibro. She is able to get things, help me keep my balance or find a spot to sit. She can put herself between me and people so I don't get bumped.
Insomnia thou art a heartless wench
A friend of mine made this for me, thought you all would appreciate it as much as me!
6 easy exercises anyone with fibro can do! OC
On chronic pain
You had one job!
This. I really suffer from this. My inlaws drive me crazy. 'How can you have so much pain now, we saw you last week and you were fine. Just go for a walk or something.'
Caturday Problems in honour of my follow up appt this week
Leave this here for a quick smirk or giggle for other Fibro Sufferers.
Ok, but real talk...would any of us even be able to tell?
Currently struggling with this.
Wanna be a glowstick!
Seems right to me
I can't help my family much right now since I'm so immuno-compromised. But I used the few spoons I had today to make some masks for myself, my parents, brother, and boyfriend.
Real footage of me trying to stay awake during a flare
I got my fibromyalgia tattoo done! I almost tapped out from the pain but it ended up well worth it! (Purple for fibro, turquoise for mental health associated, and pink for women's health)
It's just one of those days I need to express the continual frustration and continual battle that I have with just living.
Supposed to feel something?
The other day, I commented on a dog post in this sub that i wished i had a dog. Not even an hour later, my coworker asked if I wanted to adopt her dog. I immediately said yes, and now Jacy and I will live happily ever after! She is the most sweet and gentle and good doggo i have ever met. i love her
The struggle is real.
Me Once a Week
Hey, maybe we’re all mermaids?
We’re just the lucky ones, I guess!
Me this whole quarantine
I mucked a duck coop last night and it took 3 hours to do. It was also like 20 degrees. This accurately sums up how I feel right now.
So here’s a drawing that I did of a transparent plastic spoon. I was told that this could be helpful in this subreddit. This took 9 hours to complete. It was an emotional roller coast to complete this but it was worth it in the end.
I turn my pain into memes. This is my newest one.
“Do no harm”
When you have fibro and find a meme that speaks to you... but you don’t know whether to laugh or cry into your prescription box.
But you don’t look sick!
A million times yes.
Made another meme. Stay strong fibro-fam
On my best days, I try to bake.
I needed to hear this, thought someone else might need to hear this also!!
There are too many good memes that are perfect for fibro/chronic illness life but were made for the pandemic. I wish everyone's lives could go back to normal, but DAE also feel that suddenly lots of people can slightly understand what we go through all the time?
Ah, so that’s what it is
I thought of y'all when I saw this.
Sounds about right
We're the experts in this!
Finished this scarf! I thought I was going to have to stop because of the finger pain, but I did it!
Just go to bed earlier if you're so tired!
Meme relatable but maybe not funny
I finally chopped off my hair to make my life easier/relieve the pain ponytails cause/make my CPAP headgear fit better and damn do I feel free and look pretty darn good.
I hear it cures everything
Shirt I chose to wear to the first day of pt for my fibro, they loved it
Hi y’all! Made this Garbage Rainbow sticker and thought you might relate...
Have you tried .....
This touches my soul.
I think we could all use some comic relief! Hope everyone has an ok day :)
Took me 2 weeks to do these... they're not great but I know my mum will appreciate them.
Oh hi there- ow
Pill boxes to the rescue
The hat I wear when I get a bad flare up. We call it the fibro hat. It even has a pocket for snacks (I keep a bag of CBD pills in there) it's my non verbal way of telling my family the pain is bad. I think everyone needs a fibro hat!
Know that feeling
Can you imagine this?
Me talking about fibromyalgia to doctors.
I need this on a t-shirt or a tote or something.
For the people who say to us “you don’t look sick”
It really is like this
hope this makes some of you smile
Hmm pain meds...
Ive been teaching myself to draw from YouTube. i dont have energy for my many hobbies, this is one thing i can do from the couch and barely costs a spoon ;) Here is my progress pic day 1 and day 21 :)
I walked 1.5 miles today (I’ve been bedridden for over a year) and got to be at awe at this beautiful waterfall
Good ole “fibro is acting up” kitchen
This is a great educational visual
I drew this last night when I couldn’t sleep due to pain. Who else relates?
Having a day >_<
Feel this in my soul. Well overdo it on good days
daily reminder that you’re all incredible and so loved
Got two bag of stuff cleaned up in the yard before my back couldn’t take it anymore. But hey that’s two bags down :)
BUT, THE PAIN!
Yeah pretty much
For my fellow nerds
MRW I start a new medication and its working well, and I forget that doesn't mean I'm magically normal, so I start moving furniture around like an able-bodied idiot.
IF THAT AIN'T THE TRUTH
Take that Dr
Yep, sounds about right!
I C O N I C
Is it just me?
Chronic fatigue gang woooo
Just in case someone needs to see this :)
I mean its just weird to think about
My life with fibro
Fibromyalgia be like...
Betcha there's not a fibromite in this group who's not had something like the bottom half happen...
Thank you, pill case, for differentiating my days. Without you I’d be lost in this surreal Coronavirus-induced Ground Hog Day.
A bit too relatable
Possibly the worst bit of Fibro, for me anyway ...
If i grocery shop, I cant cook.
This is how i play video games. I sit in a hole, ottoman pulled to to support legs. Pillows under knees, Pillows to support head and arms, heat pad on my back, pillow on my belly to support hands and controller, heat blanket on top, extra heat blanket beside for dogs or else they sit on me and mine
This is me today.
It's nice to sit by the window once in a while, especially when I don't feel up to going outside
For everyone here xo
I can’t help the temptation of sugar!
The difference between a good day and a flare up day. No one sees me on my bad days so no wonder people say you can’t tell I’m sick. I’m proud of myself for doing something nice for myself on the good days - also I’m getting better at the make up thing
We must take care of ourselves too.
I'd wear this everyday lol.
This one got me :/
Change brain to pain and it’s my life right now
Well it *was* a good day
A horror themed one to make you smile
This hits too close to home for us.. I slept 2 hours last night and I feel exactly the same as I felt yesterday.
My dog never leaves my side when I'm struggling.
The nightly struggle.
Just wanted to share this here...the one thing that has gotten me through my hardest days. Adopted her in my moms name when I was 15. We've travelled thousands of miles together, lived out of a camper van. When she and I moved to Europe, we officially put her ownership in my name. She's everything.
Not mine, really felt it though, great stitch! [FO] Felt this pattern's message in my soul lol. Pattern info in comments :)
