Suffering from fibromyalgia can be an isolating experience but, it’s important to remember that you are not alone. The internet is full of helpful blogs created by fellow fibromyalgia patients who share their experiences, advice and support. Today I thought I would share a few of my favorite fibromyalgia blogs with you.
Today also marks the start of a new feature on my blog; Sunday Share. On Sundays I will share some of my favorite or not so favorite things with you. It could be anything…
15 of my favorite fibromyalgia blogs:
- A Life Less Physical –
Sarah was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2009. Although her blog often focuses on activities that are suitable for people who enjoy a life less physical, she also features her thoughts and loves including design, food, lifestyle wellness – and anything else I happen to be going through on any given day.
- A Life Well Red – Kristine was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS). A Life Well Red is designed to inform, encourage, and offer a ‘soft place to land’ while finding beauty and grace living a life with ‘invisible chronic illness’.
- Brainless Blogger – Created by Nikki Albert, who has chronic migraines with aura and fibromyalgia. Her blog is about raising awareness on chronic pain. It covers chronic pain, migraines and fibromyalgia primarily and associated conditions; insomnia, brainfog, IBS. From personal experience to research.
- Chronic Mom – Shelley is a mom living with Fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease. The purpose of her blog is to let sick people know that they are not alone and that there are other people out there like them. She also hopes to make people laugh along the way because laughter makes everything better.
- Chronically Kristin – Inner musings of a chronic illness fighter determined to win. Kristin chronicles her life with Ankylosing Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, Rhinitis, Costochondritis, and Anxiety. She writes about her health issues, product reviews, health conferences, social media, and patient advocacy.

You’ll see posts and information relating to the struggles, hardships, and dark side of chronic illnesses but overall the positive will shine through.
- Mama Sick – Emily suffers from Bipolar Disorder, Lupus, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. She wants to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this and educate people about what can happen when one becomes catastrophically ill. She strives to break down stereotypes of what a disabled mom, a family on food stamps and temporary homelessness is like.

I have found blogging to be a great way to feel connected to a wider support network; as well as sharing our experiences, helpful advice/information or just venting! Have you written a blog about fibromyalgia, or are you inspired to do so? Be sure to share the link to your blog or any great blogs that you have discovered in the comment section.
P.S. If you blog about living with chronic illness, you might want to join Chronic Illness Bloggers, a blog network created by Julie Ryan specifically for the chronic illness community.
