Welcome to Fibro Ramblings. My main purpose is to help raise fibromyalgia awareness and to educate people where possible. I hope too, that in sharing my personal experiences, that many Fibromyalgia Warriors will be able to relate and find comfort in the knowledge that they are certainly not alone. Fibromyalgia is an awful, life changing disorder, that leaves many of it’s sufferers feeling alone, depressed, confused, sad, and angry.  This will be a very open and honest look into the daily life of a sufferer and the numerous challenges that we face.

  1. I was diagnosed with Fibro, finally, 2010 but dealt with all the symptoms shortly after my car accident in ‘97. We just didn’t know what was going on. It was awful and I was so sick of drs. I’ve got a spinal cord stimulator that helps with low back and hip pain plus my meds. They are least ease things up. I work at least 40 hours at a crisis shelter for abused people then have a farm and ranch to run with 17 dogs most that we’ve rescued after they’re dropped off out here. Then all of our other animals, horses, sheep, cattle, geese, ducks, chickens, pigs and cats. Whew! My never ending whirlwind, always busy life.
    Hope you have a great day!🌺

    2. No need to become your illness. You are what you are. You are not fibromyalgia or any other illness. Be defined by yourself and how you treat others. Friends and family. Mend bridges. Dont build fibro walls. I did. I became my illness. I let it control every aspect of my life. I lost friends and family. Now I ignore fibro. It’s not my life. I am more. Much more.

Faces of Fibromyalgia I've Been Suffering from Fibromyalgia, by Rika Kino

Dear Angelique,
Opening up about your experience with Fibromyalgia is very courageous and inspiring to many people.
I really believe that your work brings hope to others and raises awareness.
I think I should have known more. I should have asked the doctors earlier whether I had Fibromyalgia or other similar diseases, like ME/CFS.
I really do respect your opinion that educating ourselves is key and that patients with Fibromyalgia or other diseases should never give up hope, even when it’s hard. They must keep looking for treatments.
As a woman, I always wanted to have children, however after Fibromyalgia hit, as you know, the pain becomes a burden.
Once I went to a Fibromyalgia Community Forum in Tokyo. They have people there that suffer from Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, and other diseases. There was about 25 people there, so not a large group. They were in their 30’s to early 50’s. I heard 5 people in their 20-30’s (married, single and no children) saying that when having Fibro worries them the most, is after giving birth and raising a child.
My family and I worry about how my condition will get. I don’t have anybody around me that suffers from Fibromyalgia to talk to about the changes in your condition after giving birth and raising a child.
I worry that I might move around.
In Japan, Fibromyalgia is not yet specified as an incurable disease from the Government and as a result, you don’t get much help from the health insurance.
But after I read you blog, It really made me change my mind about things that I never knew about.
Nobody can predict much about the future.
I’m getting old so I might need to freeze my eggs now, in order to have a child. This might be my new task!
Your blog is eye opening and I believe that many, many people around the globe feel that too.
Thank you,
Have a nice day,
Rika
