Focus on Five

Focus on Five showcases five fabulous fibro bloggers here each week. This week we spotlight five of our favorite 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. 

Fibro bloggers in the UK

Rob and Bridget are chronic illness and disabled travel bloggers from the United Kingdom. Between them, they have a large "collection' of illnesses including fibromyalgia, sleep apnoea, and rheumatoid arthritis. Their blog The Bimblers is about living in the slow lane and finding accessible travel. 
"When you travel with a disability, there is more to picking a holiday destination than finding out where the best beach is or what the nightlife is like. Yes, these are important, but so are the more practical things as well."   
10 Free and Accessible Things to do in London and Accessible Guide to the UK’s National Parks are just two of their many helpful and indepth articles. They talk all about inclusive travel and chronic illness on their Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Lynne Said helps women reduce the pain, fatigue & fog of fibromyalgia, build their confidence and get their lives back. She is a qualified NLP Master Practitioner, OldPain2Go Practitioner and Health Coach, a member of the Complementary Medical Association, and a member of the Association for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2014 and blogs at The Healing Within Fibromyalgia. She has many posts there including I Left When Fibromyalgia Arrived and How to Reduce Fibromyalgia Pain.
"There's no cure for fibromyalgia at this time but that doesn't mean we can't have a quality of life! Focusing on the core of what supports good health rather than trying to play whack-a-mole with symptoms and flares is the way forward." 
Her Facebook page is full of helpful suggestions to support healing.

 Cynthia Covert was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and endometriosis between 2001 and 2004. Also, a handful of surgical errors have left her with irreparable abdominal damage. Despite all of this she is always looking for ways to make living with chronic pain and illness easier, less painful, and more fun. She blogs about her chronic life story, self-care, and accessibility at The Disabled Diva's Blog. She has helpful posts, where you can also listen, like 6 Fibromyalgia Triggers and How to Avoid Them and Fibromyalgia Treatment Lyrica Patient Review Of Side Effects And Benefits 

You can find her on Facebook and her colorful Instagram account contains all her famous meme creations.

Fibro bloggers and their blogs

Bettina Bier was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2011 and has been blogging about it since 2018 at Me, Myself and I - When Nothing Goes Right Go Left. 
"In your dream you have so much pain in your back that you barely can stand & you wake up from this. 
 When awake you realise it was not only in your dreams.
These are the days when it only can get better." 
Bettina has an interview series with people living with fibromyalgia, like Nikki and Alisha and also translates some of her fibro articles into German to help a wider audience. Of course, I would be remiss to not mention her beloved dog Scotch who she shares photographs of on Facebook, and her love of the show Supernatural which she often tweets about.

Joanna Orgovan has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. She is a certified coach who believes that getting better from Fibromyalgia starts with your mindset. Her blog - But You Look So Healthy - focuses on natural techniques to treat and live with these conditions. 
"I have pretty much died to my old self and have started anew to create a brand-new life that has healed me from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes, it's a fine line of that one thing that can drive you back over the edge to being ill. I do not compromise anything for my health. Not one thing." 
Her information packed posts include The Mindset You Need to Feel Better From Fibromyalgia, Forever... and Chakras, The Vagus Nerve and Fibromyalgia, Oh My! You can find her on Facebook and Twitter.
