I'm the owner of the blog Fibromyalgia Confessions. I decided to make this blog as a way to get information out to all of you. When it comes to living with Fibromyalgia knowledge is power. The more you learn about Fibromyalgia as an illness and about your own personal Fibromyalgia, the easier it will be for you to find a balance in your life. Once you find that balance it's amazing how much easier some things are. Fibromyalgia is painful and will always be hard to deal with but I think we should do all we can to make it as easy as it can be.

Together we can find the balance...
We hurt, we’re tired, and our brains are foggy. A lot of us don’t have jobs or don’t work a lot because our bodies can’t handle it. A lot of us don’t get out of the house a whole lot either. Sometimes it feels terrible. I know sometimes I would love to have a job or places to go; I’d love to be able to do those things but I can’t. So what do those of us who are in those situations do with all of our free time? How do we battle the depression and loneliness that comes with being a homebody?
For a while I thought watching tv, watching movies, and reading would satisfy me during the long days at home while my husband was working. It worked for the first month or so but then I started to get restless. Eventually I started picking up other hobbies and stretching my creativity like I’d never had time to before Fibromyalgia. I found out I was good at painting and many other types of art, I started writing more than ever before, I even managed to publish my first book which is now available on Amazon!
Ok, so what’s my point to all of this? Why do you care about my creative endeavours? In the midst of it all I found that not only was my time being filled but that my mood was significantly better and my pain was a little bit less. It’s another piece in the balanced life puzzle I’ve been trying to put together since my diagnosis and maybe even before.
So, find out what you love to do; find out what you’re good at and what makes you happy. So, you can’t go all over, there are still so many things you can do. You can create things, you can cook things, you can write and read things, you can start a blog or a support group, you can even connect with other people through many of the social sites we have today.
The quote, that I stole from one of my fortunes I got in a cookie at the local Chinese restaurant, that I used as the title is true. Negativity is definitely challenged by your own creativity.
