Fighting Fibromyalgia

It's 3 am in the morning
I was awakened in pain all over
I couldn't sleep
It's personal and I should not be blogging about my condition
However, perhaps it will help someone who are facing the same battle as I do.
I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
It's been a challenging experience.
Some days you're ok, some days u are in pain all over
It's like piercing pain poking u simultaneously on all spots.
There are thousand and one symptoms that are even more challenging than the pain itself.
Every morning is a struggle for me.
Every day is a struggle for me.
Every night is a struggle for me.
I am trying to make lifestyle changes.
It's a condition no one will understand because it doesn't seem chronic enough to lead to death but yet your quality of life just go down.
Every morning, I wake up begging God to give me His strength.
Otherwise I will perish..otherwise I could not get out of bed.
If you're like me; fighting fibromyalgia..I pray you don't give up.
God understands and you maybe wondering why you? But ask why not you?
I know I will conquer this disease and be healed stronger than ever before..
So don't give up! Don't be discouraged because the Lord has plans for you.
Jeremiah 29:11
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.
We humans are too weak but with God nothing is impossible.
Get up my child and be filled with God's strength!
May the good Lord help us in fighting fibromyalgia!


  1. From how you describe it here, I probably don't have Fybrom. Piercing pain poking at various parts of the body sounds like needles on skin. Or does it feel bone deep piercing. Mine is more like.. tissue and bone deep cutting.

  2. Hi Joey, some days you have muscle sore, some days you have piercing pain, some days it feels like bone deep, some days you cannot walk because of inflammation, a lot of days you have muscle cramps that makes you wake up every night, but one thing that all fibro patients have is pain when all trigger points are pressed. That's what makes it different from all other diseases
