I am excited! In less than one day, it will be the beginning of a new month and also the time Fibromyalgia patients all over the world will celebrate Fibromyalgia Awareness Day May 12, 2014.
In honor of this auspicious day, we will not only celebrate on the 12th but the celebration will last all month. Please join us and come together to “make it visible” “make fibro visible”.
Share information, pictures, and inspirational stories. Wear purple. Attend empowering events, and make your voice heard on any and all social media platforms. Let your friends know on Twitter, Facebook, BlogHer, and any platform you are visible.
The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA) and National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA) have tons of information available on their website and Facebook page for Fibromyalgia patients as well as family, friends, and all who may be interested in learning more or becoming an active participant. They also have some cool Fibromyalgia apparel you can take advantage of. There are many events scheduled throughout the month of May, too many to list here. Please visit the NFMCPA and NFA website and for more information.
Additionally, I found a cool hashtag the NFA shared on its Facebook page and I would like to share with you in the hopes you share with others when you spread the word to increase awareness. #makefibrovisible
Fibromyalgia Awareness Day is May 12, 2014.
Here’s to more pain-free days filled with laughter, joy, and praise!
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by. -JD
