Two faced Fibromyalgia

Hey guys,

This is just a small little post about something I’ve been thinking about. My fibromyalgia has been bad the last while so I thought I’d write this post. This is about fibromyalgia’s two faces. #twofaced

These pictures are after a good cry, feeling completely deflated, worried and sad for the future #twofaced

I actually find crying a great stress reliever, it’s the only way I can get out my frustrations. Wrecked but always feel slightly relieved after a good cry. (I call them mini break downs)

No matter how hard I try to be strong and put on a happy face even though I’m really a different person on the inside, sometimes I just can’t hold it in and I break down. Fibro sufferers are two faced. The face on the outside is never really the face on the inside and to be honest I think that’s OK. I think its OK to pretend that you are OK as long as you are honest with yourself and know how you really feel. Any fibro sufferers I know, would hate the idea of talking a lot about their condition and having people feel sorry for them. Sometime I feel if people know you have a condition then they think of you as weak and to me I have to believe I am the total opposite. I have to believe I have this condition because I can deal with it and it wont break me.

I never spoke about my fibro with my friends growing up, I think it was only about 5 years ago that I started sharing it with them and explaining what I was going through and again I think that’s OK.


Me on a good day In Australia with David. #twofaced

If you are a fibro sufferer and you have two faces too, good on you! Two faced, strong and determined. Stay positive and keep fighting.

Lots of love

  1. I hope you get better and better. This sucks. I’ll never complain about my small problems again :/ hope there a cure for that, this is awful 😦

    Much of random love from a complete stranger ♡♡♡♡


  2. Sending lots of love from a complete stranger and fellow fibro sufferer. I was only diagnosed a couple of years back, after being in constant pain for around 3 years, having no idea why I was in constant pain. I work with children, so I try to fill them with inspiration and hope, especially that they were all aware of my struggle and diagnosis. Keeping a smile and staying on your feet when every second of it is pain can be very difficult. I have a lot of mini nervous breakdowns and long cries. My husband has been so supportive, but needing help opening jars and lifting things all the time can be very difficult, especially being a very independent type. I’ll be thinking of you and sending positive thoughts of pain-free moments. Bless.


    1. Hi Zoe, Sorry i am only reading this now. Thank you so much for your message it means a lot. I am actually just about to do another post as I have just had my 3rd laparoscopy so dealing with all that now.
      Yes Fibro can be a real pain and we are both lucky to have wonderful men in our lives to help and support but it can defo be tough and lonely so messages like these mean a lot. Keep the chin up, get as much fresh air as possible and if I find a miracle cure Ill let you know 🙂


  3. So I’m considering running a study…it included Pilates…and I’ve seen it work. Let me know if you might be interested.
