Day 5 HAWMC: Social media

Are you all about 180 characters or less? Do you enjoy shooting the perfect photo? Or perhaps love sharing posts on Facebook.What’s your favorite platform to get your voice heard and why?

Social media wise I would have to say that Facebook is my favorite platform.
I can:
  • Post my blog automatically to it
  • Post automatically to twitter
  • Hook my Pinterest to it
It makes a fine hub for social networking.

Not to mention the fact I post many articles and bloggers that I don't blog about myself which spreads a great deal of awareness through that way. A lot of research, coping articles and other bloggers viewpoints. I can get a massive amount of information out there. I generally post 3 articles a day.

Secondly I create a lot of content for Facebook. Image creation I also use for my blog, but images that are designed to make people think, to bring awareness, share information or share the experience of chronic illness. And it is an excellent way to share that information. I do 3 images a day.

Making Invisible Disabilities Visible is my main Page and linked to Brainless Blogger. It focuses on invisible disabilities, chronic illness and chronic pain.

Migraineuer Mutterings and Musings is my secondary page linked to Migrainuer Mutterings and Musings. It is all about migraines. It is quite new and I made it because I have a lot of migraine alone content I don't want to crowd my main blog. Not that I don't blog about that on Brainless Blogger but I tend to talk about chronic pain in general. And since that page focuses on invisible disabilities I don't want to have too many migraine related memes, so I made a separate page.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

Getting through the high intensity pain flares #Blogboost

The crowded me out of the brain. Making no room for anything else. Distraction was impossible. You feel almost frantic with the pain but must be still.

What do you do? To get through it when you have no distraction?

I ask me this as I am really in the depths of a 9 level frantic level of pain right now. Hoping maybe some writing will be a distraction, but it isn't. As I said, the pain crowds the brain. I have to focus real hard to write and my head isn't clear. Too much pain to focus well. Things become quite difficult to do. 

I will say this: We cannot function. We have to just cope with the pain.

But we are Immersed in the pain, we what do we do?
We can and should rest and get through it the best we can. Here are some of the things I do to get through it.

Relaxation breathing: I can't meditate when in high levels of pain. It just makes me think about how much pain I am in. Just not a good idea. But I do do relaxation breathing. I close my eyes. I focus on my breathing. I even…
