today is may 12th.

and i thank god that most of you will never have to deal with it, but today is national fibromyalgia awareness day.

if you are bored or have a second, would you mind reading a bit about it? i had never even heard of fibromyalgia until a year ago, and since then, it has flipped my world upside down. you can check out my experience here.

fibro is not a life-threatening condition, so it doesn't get the press AIDS or cancer gets, but it is a life-changing diagnosis. if you know anyone who has fibromyalgia, give them a hug for me!


  1. I didn't know it had a day!
    I'd heard of it for a while before I was diagnosed because my sister's friend also has it (WAY worse than I do, too) but I didn't really understand it until I had to go through it. Sending a hug your way. :)

  2. I've read about fibromyalgia and my heart goes out to those who have it. I can't even imagine what I would do if diagnosed with that. You seem to deal with this like a hero and for that you are a huge inspiration. :)

    PS. You're definitely not the only one who posts pictures of sexy half naked guys! I saw the one you posted and highly approve. We should do this more often. ;)

  3. actually i do know someone suffering with this. they'll be happy to hear that a blog is supporting it! ima give them a huggie for u for sure. thanks love <3

  4. You are amazing for raising awarenes about this. i can't imagine what it would be like to deal with it. you are so strong!
