Happy Awareness Month!
The first week of the 2022 Fibromyalgia Awareness Month has been a busy one.
I have several useful things to share with you below.
On Instagram I have been sharing fun quotes from other fibromyalgia bloggers and highlighting other resources of use. You can join in the conversation over there.
Resources for you
Brand new blog post
Creating a symptom management toolkit the easy way. This is the finale in my short series on helping you to craft a whole of life wellness plan.
Brand new video
What it really means to have chronic pain. This was specially created for Fibromyalgia Awareness Month. I hope it helps, especially if you want to share resources to create awareness too.
More helpful resources for you
I listened to a couple of good podcasts this week that you might like.
Butterfly Chats discussed finding relief from fibromyalgia. Fun fact: later in the month I will be a featured guest on this podcast (we talk about my new book) 🙂
How to feel less tired on a daily basis – this is from Mind Body Green and features Ari Whitten who has dedicated his practice to working with people to manage their mitochondria and energy well. A very useful listen.

We are getting so close to my brand new book Fibromyalgia Won’t Win being published! I am waiting (impatiently) for my proof copy to finally arrive here in New Zealand (it takes so long). But the preorder of the eBook is available now. From the 12th of May the paperback will also be available.
For the month of May, those who purchase will go into the draw to win a prize pack. You enter the draw using this form (you will need to upload proof of purchase).
Plus ALL people who purchase will receive access to a digital goodie bag that I compiled. I can’t wait for you to get it.
My new electric heating pad (a saga)
If you follow me on social media at all, you will know that my heating pad died a sad death. I was at a total loss as to how to replace it.
A lot of people recommended Sunbeam to me. However, I went with the same brand (unfortunately the same model wasn’t available) Medisana because I knew it heated up properly. Ain’t no chronic pain patient need a cool heating pad!
So if you want to check out the most recommended one. It’s this.
Also – lesson learnt – I bought two heating pads. If you find one you love, buy two (one for the cupboard) because they like to change things up and it doesn’t always go well for us.
That’s all for now. Have a fab week. Don’t forget to come chat on Instagram if you hang out there too.
