Caring for the Caretakers


For all those who have a chronic illness and a supportive partner, family or friend:

Remember, they are doing their best to help you. So they are doing more than what the partners, families and friends of healthy people are doing. Most of the times they don't say it. But remember, they are exerted too. Coz seeing a loved one in pain that will not go away is very disturbing. Also, doing additional amount of work to help us makes them tired and frustrated too.

11 Tips to plan a day out when you have #Fibromyalgia


With Fibromyalgia, stepping out everyday is not possible for every warrior. Yet, there are days when you want to step out and get some fresh air. Be it your birthday, an anniversary, a little picnic or even grocery shopping, it's a special occasion when a fibromyalgfia warrior needs to spend the entire day out of home.

Here are 11 Tips to smartly plan a day out when you have #Fibromyalgia:

Are you unknowingly torturing someone with Fibromyalgia?


If you know someone with Fibromyalgia, please understand that those with this illness have difficulty doing certain things which appear too easy to you. There are some days they can manage even with extreme pain, but most days, they simply can't. Yet, if you say that you want them to do something, they might go out of their way to do it and spoil their symptoms further. And the fact is that while they will always try their best to care for people, people take their illness for granted and don't care about them.

IN A SINGLE DAY, FIBROMYALGIA PATIENTS CANNOT - wake up the kids, get them ready, cook breakfast, serve stuff, clean house, take care of unwell people at home, visit doctors, get groceries, work from home / do full-time / part-time job, do the dishes, talk to clients / relatives, cook lunch, snacks, dinner, remember to do several things, be active all through the day, go for walks, sleep on time and stay or look happy.
