In This Issue:

  1. Up to 70% of people with Fibromyalgia experience dizziness, so doing ‘simple’ things such as taking a shower can actually be quite difficult.
  2. The challenges of dating with chronic illness – needing to rest, plan and pack before your date.
  3. Death by chronic illness is a real problem that needs to be addressed, not brushed aside and undermined.
  4. How Alike Health uses technology to match you with other chronic illness patients who are most similar to you in more ways than one.
  5. Fire your doctor if you don’t like them, because chronic illness is for life, and you can’t afford to have one who isn’t a player on your team.
  6. Many popular chronic illness posts from 2020 highlight the difficulties of both staying in and going out, which the general public is also realising with the pandemic.
  7. Using a wheelchair can allow you more enjoyable and quality time with loved ones outside. Don’t be ashamed about needing to use it!
  8. Studies have found that the fascia of people with Fibromyalgia also have abnormalities, and how to do some myofascial release.
  9. Life with Fibromyalgia and healthy eating – buying prepared vegetables and chucking them into the slow cooker, or preparing easy homemade soups.
  10. Disabled people also deserve respect and a better quality of life, and one way to do that is through self-respect and acceptance of our disabling conditions.
