Focus on Five

Focus on Five showcases five fabulous fibro bloggers here each week. This week we will shine a spotlight on five of our newest bloggers at Fibro Blogger Directory. Fibro bloggers are a unique group as they live with a chronic pain condition and still choose to write about it to help others. 

Sarah Warburton has been living with fibromyalgia since at least 2012. She can remember symptoms when she was growing up.  She blogs at Musings of life with fibromyalgia about her life with fibromyalgia in the United Kingdom, including things that lift and inspire her. Even though she lives with anxiety, chronic migraine, and spinal injury as well as fibro she is learning ways to manage her conditions rather than them controlling her. 
"Since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I’ve been on a mission to find ways to thrive and live a positive life by learning as much as I can about self care and wellness and putting these new skills into practice."  
Some of her helpful posts include Fibro, Anxiety and the Festive Season and 5 tips for Travelling by car when you have Fibro. You can also follow her tweets as SarahW @sswarbo

"I am the artist behind Bnspyrd's Artist's Resources, I will be posting about my life, helpful advice & links, please join me on my journey."   
Tash was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2019, lives in South Australia, and is a freelance artist. She has some original, interesting poems on her blog as well as sharing her day-to-day life in posts like Introduction about my life as an artist and in chronic pain.

She also loves photography and nature and has combined her passions at Route 5976 - Fibromyalgia Travel blog.

"Hello fellow wanderers.  As you can see in my fine print disclaimer, this site is dedicated to the discussion of fibromyalgia, chronic pain, chronic fatigue… Sounds fascinating doesn’t it?
