“Fibromyalgia Awareness Color”

Description from Granny Nancy: Fibromyalgia is far more recognized than ME/CFS (myalgic encephalomyelitia/chronic fatigue syndrome) but they share the same awareness day of May 12th but have different awareness colors. These two chronic diseases tend to go together quite often. I have both and many of my friends have both. I've met hundreds of people in the over 30 years of coping with these diseases. ME/CFS awareness color is deep blue like lapis, cobalt and others of similar depth.

My eldest son was diagnosed with CFS about 25 years ago but his is quite mild compared to mine. My younger son has many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia but won't seek a diagnosis in order to get proper treatment. At least with FM, there is treatment that doctors are familiar with.

    Oh no I am so so sorry you and your son are dealing with this ….my sister in law has FM and its very hard for her :( people dont understand because she doesnt look sick … a few years ago I went blimd in my right eye and showed sommany symptoms of FM and MS here I had lymes disease and was throwing false negatives …what a scary time that was … I still have nerve damage but the nerve pain eased considerably. ….but during that time i got an awareness of just a little of what you guys deal with :( praying you have relief from your treatment …with that said your pick is beautiful and I have been eyeing that druzy pendant for days now ;)

    Kimberly, that druzy pendant is even prettier in person! The glimmer and shine are so lovely. Nancy, I love this pick! The color for FM is the only pretty thing about this horrible disease. We had a family friend that suffered from FM. Another friend’s mother suffered from FM. When she was going through chemo it was the worst part of her treatment as it brought on the FM pain.

    Thank you, Nancy. I didn’t know this was FM’s color. I have FM too…
    A beautiful pick of purples!

    Nancy, my heart and prayers are with you for your suffering! I lost a friend and coworker to pancreatic cancer and purple is the awareness color for that too.

    I’m with you Nancy. My youngest daughter was hit with rheumatoid arthritis & FM in her last year of college. She was finally diagnosed by a wonderful rheumatologist. But getting the right treatments was a nightmare. She is now 34 & has been doing well for the past 4-5 years. Her 20s were horrible. I also have chronic pain & was diagnosed with a couple of autoimmune diseases several years ago.
    I’m glad purple is my favorite color. It has more meaning now! Great pick.
