Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean that I am not going through it

In case you follow my social media and don’t have Fibromyalgia or a chronic illness and are struggling to understand or wondering why, how I managed to do what I did last weekend I want you to know this.

I was still pain, I still felt fatigued when I did what I did last weekend.

I am still paying a high price for “living”

Last weekend was highly unusual. It’s the most energy & desire I’ve had in over 12 months. I have no idea IF or when I will feel like that again.

I might now show pictures of me looking ill, being stuck on the couch or laying in bed. I don’t show pictures of me “looking well” either.

Just because I managed to do a thing one day, doesn’t mean I will the next day. It doesn’t mean that when I did the thing I wasn’t in pain. It does mean I will suffer for doing what I did. Something a healthy person doesn’t need to consider.

If you are still struggling to understand my latest article in The Orkney News paints a clear picture of what it’s like to live with a chronic illness. It’s a day by day account of last week.

This account is about life with Fibromyalgia and multiple chronic illnesses. It create awareness and comfort, support to others. It’s not about me. It’s about Fibromyalgia 💜
