Suffering from fibromyalgia or any chronic illness can be something dreadful and easy to focus on the negative things, such as the pain. Instead, I want to concentrate on the positive things – the things to be thankful for with fibromyalgia.

5 Things to Be Thankful for With Fibromyalgia

Here are five things to be thankful for with fibromyalgia.

Be Thankful for Social Media

Social media is such a great thing, to connect with people all around the world that could be suffering from the same thing or something similar.

And when I say social media, I mean online friends as well. These people have helped me get through some of the hardest and most painful times in my life.

There are online supporter groups, just like this NewLifeOutlook, where you can find people that are very kindhearted, and some of the most supportive people I’ve ever met in my life.

Be Thankful for the Low Pain Days

When I first started suffering from chronic pain, it was the most excruciating, most painful days of my life, and it lasted for months and months.

I thought that that was it. I thought I was gonna be hurting like that for the rest of my life.

Over time, I was able to try different coping techniques and eventually the pain started reducing. After going through that, I knew that I could be thankful for those days where I wasn’t in a flare, and I wasn’t hurting as much.

Be Thankful for Your Helpers

Whether it be friends, family members, anybody that helps make your life a little bit easier while suffering from chronic pain.

Be Thankful for Hobbies and Interests

I feel like it’s really important to find your interests and things that really make you excited about life, especially when you’re going through so much pain. To find your hobby, you can think of the things that really excite you, anything that makes you happy.

Be Thankful for Music

Music is such a wonderful thing. Those are some of the things that you and I can be thankful for while suffering from fibromyalgia.
