A Fibro Fighterz Motto

Reblogged from “A fighterz motto…”

It’s my life, not Fibro’s!

One of our fellow Fibromites on Fibro Fighterz, Colleen, said this and it makes so much sense. I think as suffers of a chronic illness we need to stop going around feeling sorry for ourselves. We need to make a conscious decision to become a fighter not a sufferer of the illness. We need to make this illness only a part of our lives and not the dictator of it. It’s so much easier to say this than to live by it. Attitude is key to our entire lives!

I hope that these words impact all of you as much as it has me…. enough to make me one of many Fibro Fighterz!


I totally agree with this post.  We have to make the decision to fight the pain, not surrender to the pain. I’ve accepted that fibromyalgia is a part of me now, but it doesn’t control my life. I control my life. I do the things I need to do to manage the pain as best as I can, rest when I need to, but I still live my life.  It’s a hard thing to do, but I work at it every day. Every day I make the decision to get out of bed and live, not give in to the pain, crawl under the covers, and not come back out.  We face a lot of challenges with our invisible disease, but we are strong enough to keep going. We are fighters. We are survivors. Don’t ever forget that!
