Here Since 2016

Hi there! I’m Susan Pearson, let me tell you a little about me.
In 2016, I started the blog “Living Creatively with Fibro.” The first reason was to chronicle my journey. Then as time passed by I realised that there was so much that was unknown or misunderstood about Fibromyalgia. Even within the medical community. So I wanted to help the “Spoonie” community get the word out.

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.

If you have Fibromyalgia or a similar chronic illness and want tips on how to stay organised and creative, you’re in the right place.

My Mission

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

Creative Fibro

My Motto

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

Creative Fibro


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.

Staying Organised

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 Fibromyalgia as I do. For the first few years we lived on the top floor of my parent’s house, which logistically had its problems. In 2019, we rented our house in a lovely village about ten miles away from there. My life was once bigger than it is now, but I have adjusted to the changes that Fibro brought over time.

My Other Blogs

This blog is the longest running. Although it has had a few facelifts and moved house a couple of times. I am really proud that I have kept it going when various bloggers who started out at the same time as me have given up.

As well as my creativity and organisation that I talk about from the perspective of being a Spoonie. I am also heavily into tech, personal knowledge management, productivity and genealogy. I talk about these topics over at Creative Fibro’s Digital World. Sometimes I just want to talk about a topic that doesn’t fit on either blog, and you can find these posts at Creative Fibro Off Topic.
