Fibro Tools: UP by Jawbone (Review)

A little over a month ago, I wrote about my excitement over purchasing an UP fitness tracker in my post The Fight Goes Hi-Tech. Was the purchase worth it? The short answer is YES! I’ve learned a lot about my sleeping and fitness habits. The only negative would be not knowing what to do with […]

A Roller Coaster of A December

Hello, readers! Did you miss me? I sure have missed writing and hearing your comments. I made a promise to myself that I would try to post to this blog twice a month but try as I did; life got in the way this December. To be honest, December felt like the epitome of “when […]

Treating Myself

October and what has passed of November have been a crazy busy! I have a million things going on: finishing the Ph.D. (I swear I’m really getting close to finishing), running a science outreach program, preparing for my second archery competition (a team affair with specified training times), and volunteering a bit of my time at […]

Fibro Friendly Wardrobe

A lot of times when someone discovers I have fibromyalgia, they often ask me what are some of the symptoms. Often I want to reply, “How much time do you have?” because there are so many symptoms that are associated with fibromyalgia. When thinking about what to include in this blog, one of my first […]

Just A Spoonie Girl…Trying to Make it in this Crazy World

When I decided to start blogging about a year ago, the idea of blogging about life with fibromyalgia had crossed my mind. However, I didn’t entertain the thought for more than a second.
