Hug me. Gently.

When your body is screaming, it’s hard to focus on just getting through the motions of a given day. Sometimes you want nothing more than a big hug, but it just hurts too much. In those moments, it’s more important than ever to be patient with our bodies, and work WITH them to get our fibromyalgia and chronic pain symptoms under control.

Welcome to a new conversation about fibromyalgia.
