Amazing artist Amanda Zammit created the above piece titled Pain within Me for a loved one who has fibromyalgia and myalgic encephalomyelitis. Please, click either her name or the image above to visit her website.
I found this image via Google this morning and I thought it was perfect to describe my recent circumstances. The past two weeks have been a rollercoaster, and I let the ball drop on my personal projects (blog/vlog). Now that that ride is over, I’m excited to get back into the groove of things. 🙂
I’ve had the flu for a week. I’m a little slow on getting it together with blog/blog. Still, I’m working on it. Look out for new posts here tomorrow and on my YT channel! Thanks for sticking with me!
I happened upon this image today on the FibroArt Facebook page. It’s been a bit of an overwhelming period for me, and this image seemed to speak well to how the past few days have been. 🙂
Please, take the time out to visit and like their page. It’s a wonderful space that celebrates both art and survival.
Happy Monday, Everyone! I hope the weekend was pain-free & stress-free. Here is this week’s FibroArt piece, which was found on Pinterest (Fibromyalgia Inspirational…).
No, Frida Kahlo did not have fibromyalgia. This painting, however, and all of her paintings really, eloquently expresses what it sometimes like to have fibromyalgia, i.e. the pain, the sorrow, the mental struggle.
Starting from today, every Monday I will be featuring art that reflects, whether directly or indirectly, what it means to have fibromyalgia.
I welcome submissions and suggestions!
The word “Art” is being used in its broadest definition.
(So, anything really.)
