What have you read that has helped you with pain?

What books have you read that have helped you with your pain?

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”
― James Baldwin  (1924 - 1987) American writer.

We are a tribe

Have you heard of the idea of a blogging tribe? A tribe is a group of like-minded people and that is what Fibro Blogger Directory is all about.
Having a blogging tribe takes the concept of a blogging community to another level so that it is more supportive, more personal, more of a community.

There are lots of great people here on Fibro Blogger Directory and they all have a lot in common with you. Besides having fibromyalgia and blogging about it they are looking to get their posts read and shared too, just like you and me. Sharing cool blog posts is a great way to help each other, interact, feel good and spread the fibro message.

So why not visit a few blogs on the Directory and if you find one you like share it through your social media. Do you have twitter,  facebook,  pinterest or tumblr? You can connect with us there.

Cleaning and Other Housework with chronic pain

Basic household cleaning can stress both your brain and your body when you have chronic illness and chronic pain. These simple tips might help to alleviate some of the problems, leaving you more time and energy for what you love.


  • Pacing is so important but how do you start? Think 'What can you do in 5 minutes?' Pick out a chore you want to tackle, set a timer, and go! Stop when the timer goes off to prevent over exertion; if you feel pretty good after a brief rest, set it for another 5 minutes and start over.
  • Even on a blustery day, opening your windows for a few minutes will make your home (and your body!) feel fresher, even if you don't have the time or energy to clean.

Fibro Bloggers Unite


Connect with other bloggers by commenting on their blogs, visiting their blogs and following their blogs. This is advice that gets included in almost every post ever written on how to grow a blog’s visitors. This seems pretty basic to me but maybe some people just don't get it so I have written here, in point form, the benefits of visiting other fibro bloggers blogs both from how you benefit and how the condition of Fibromyalgia benefits.

Visiting other peoples blogs makes your own blog stronger:
  • Leaving comments gets you new readers.
  • Following "brands" your blog and gets you exposure.
  • Educates you on what makes a good post and a good blog.
  • Helps you see what topics are engaging audiences.
  • Helps you see what you have to offer that others don't.
Visiting other people's blogs:
  • Provides a united front.
  • Helps everyone see Fibromyalgia has many faces and voices; we are a large group, a strong group, a supportive group. 
  • Convinces the world to see there are a lot of people connecting and talking about Fibromyalgia ( "maybe they are not crazy, maybe there is something to this, maybe we should listen, maybe we will do something about this!")

I have left the MOST IMPORTANT POINT till last:  as chronic pain sufferers, visiting other's blogs helps us get a connection with others, we see other real people going through the same things as us and we do not feel so alone.
So whether you want to help your own blog get more readers or help the cause of Fibromyalgia please visit other Fibro Bloggers blogs. We have made it easy for you here - just go to the Directory and visit one or two (or more) a day. Thank you for your continued support.
