Here at Wellness Warrior Press, we’ve decided to start a blog.
So, who are we, anyway? Why would anyone want to listen to us? Well, we’re a tiny business fueled by one couple who has experience in the world of chronic illness. One of us has chronic fatigue syndrome (me), and the other (my spouse) has fibromyalgia.
I often joke about how because of this, we’re a match made in heaven. Imagine if one of us were perfectly healthy and always wanted to go hiking? Wouldn’t that suck? On days when we both feel like crap, we can binge-watch our favorite shows together and eat soup.
Sounds cute, right? I should mention, we’re in our early thirties.
I guess it’s kind of sad.
But at the same time, I wouldn’t change my life. I’m happy with what I have. Besides, our journey has led us to where we are now – helping others through our journal designs.
They say things happen for a reason!
*Side note: we haven’t given up trying to heal. I’ll talk more about that in later posts, especially holistic options for CFS since I’ve been learning so much about it.
So now you’re probably wondering… What’s this blog going to be about? Why should I care? Well, right now, the goal is to focus primarily on fibromyalgia since it hits so close to home. We have other loved ones who suffer from it, too. I feel like it’s often stigmatized and there still isn’t enough understanding. Of course, I’ll also touch on chronic fatigue syndrome and try to bring you as much helpful information as I can.
So that’s what we’re here to do… help the world understand fibromyalgia and CFS, while also bringing you entertainment and valuable information.
But I want to make something very clear. We are not going to be posting about how difficult life is, and how much we suffer on our bad days. Information like that doesn’t help anyone and it certainly won’t put a smile on your face. We may occasionally touch on the dark side to make a statement, but these posts will be very rare.
If you’re reading this and you have fibromyalgia or anything similar, you know that life isn’t a walk in the park (and even the thought of that hurts). You already have enough darkness in your life because of what you’re dealing with.
What we want is to bring you a positive space that will be informative and also funny, because laughter is good for everyone. Growing up, I was taught that it’s good to make jokes, even when times are hard. So get ready for some humor. And whatever you do, please don’t mistake our jokes for insensitivity, because that couldn’t be farther from how we feel.
And on the topic of laughter… are you ready?
We’re partnering up with an award-winning author of science fiction and fantasy. Now and then, she’ll be offering guest posts that are sure to entertain. The first one we’ll be receiving is an introduction to a new fantasy series about a superhero with fibromyalgia. It’s intended to be comedic but also informative to help others understand what it’s like to have fibro.
Right now, these stories are going to be offered exclusively on this blog.
So if you don’t want to miss our upcoming posts (and some hilarious fiction episodes), be sure to subscribe!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read our introduction, and we’ll be back again soon 😊
