It took some time to find my favorites. It seems some of my favorites are gone. Just Gone. Some have stopped blogging. If I see no post since 2013 you are not blogging. But there are some definite tried and true favorites that have not gone anywhere in migraine awareness and Fibromyalgia Awareness. A few of my new finds as well. But definitely some of my go-to blogs.
I picked 5 fibro blogs and 5 migraine blogs.

  1. The Princess In The Tower: One of my all time favorite blogs that I highly recommend people check out. As a FM blog it will surpass all expectations. The articles on coping and management are truly beneficial. Top FM blog for reading and benefit to the reader.
  2. Cranky Fibro Girl: I have always loved her style and attitude.
  3. FibroFiles: My top FM blog out there for information purposes. You want to know about FM research and what is out there, that is the blog.
  4. Counting my Spoons: A great blog and FM blogger who always has useful posts and cares about her fellow bloggers, and also the founder of Chronic Illness Bloggers which I belong to.
  5. Chronicles of Fibromyalgia: Has been around some time. She won the Healthline award like me fir best FM bloggers. And her blog shows it.
