About Me

Hi there! I’m Susan, let me tell you a little about me. Thank you for visiting my little part of cyberspace. As you’ve probably guessed from the title I am the proud owner of Fibromyalgia, and I’m trying to do everything I can to make sure I own it and don’t let it own me.

Although I write quite a lot about Fibromyalgia and Spoonie Life. That does not define me and so I write about how I live with Fibro too.

My Mission

I am here to show you how you can not just survive but thrive when living with Fibromyalgia

Fibro may eat away at my body but I refuse to give it my mind!


I’m a keen crafter and I’ve been making my own greetings cards for over half of my life. I have to admit I’d consider myself a failure if I had to buy one! I have written blog posts about how I have adapted my crafting because of the Fibro.

Being Productive

I’m a bit of an organisation freak, although I never have enough spoons to keep the house as tidy as I would like. I very much live in the real world of Fibromyalgia not just in the pages of my Pinterest or Instagram. I talk about this in the Organisation category.


I married Michael in 2015, he is incredibly supportive and probably knows as much about Fibro as I do. For the first few years we living on the top floor of my parent’s house, which logistically had it’s problems. In 2019 we rented our house in a lovely village about ten miles away from there. My life used to be a lot bigger than it is now, but I have over time adjusted to unavoidable changes Fibro brought.
