Confidence,  Fibromyalgia,  Personal,  Spoonies

Being a spoonie blogger makes me less lonely

Taking the leap and starting a blog was a bit step for me. I have zero confidence in my writing, I guess that comes from being more interested in maths than English when I was at school. The decision to start my blog was because I wanted to connect with more people who understood what it was like to live with a chronic illness, asides from my mum I didn’t really know anyone and it was a lonely existence. It was also very tiring, especially if i wanted to talk about how I was feeling. To discuss fibromyalgia with someone without it means going through it in the most painstaking detail and I just don’t have the energy or time for that, especially when nine times out of ten I was met with ignorant comments in return.

Seeing people comment on my blog posts, sending me lovely messages and just interacting with me on twitter makes the cold achy nights (and days) all that less lonely. Basically starting my blog was the best decision that I made last year and I just want to thank you! Being a spoonie blogger is the best because you all understand the little things, why achieving the simplest of tasks is actually a big deal.

Over the next few months I want to grow my blog, discuss more topics that are of importance to me and interact with you all more on a regular basis because its just really fun, you all pick me up when I am down.

Thank you for being the best 🙂

    Do you know what? I’ve only been fishing on social media for a few days – keeping up with Twitter Instagram and the blogs I’ve bookmarked has already become impossible (need to work up a schedule) – but it’s been a reason to get up and kept me occupied; entertained and informed like I have never been before.
    I have already had a few lovely interactions with you and unless you’re a remarkably intelligent psychopath; I can tell you are lovely and I am enjoying your blog – so I’m very glad to hear that you are too!

    Your writing style is warm and interesting, you can definitely have confidence in it! I’m glad being part of the spoonie blogger community is helping you. Spoonies are some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met (or online ‘met’ lol)! Xx

    You write beautifully. Thank you for sharing your story with us. Hope you continue to blog.

    I have been blogging for nearly two years and often feel like a little fish in a big pond. I have met some wonderful people on LinkedIn and twitter.
