Preparing for a Hen Do with Fibromyalgia

I'm not going to lie, I've got an insanely busy few months coming up. As someone who is used to spending a lot of time alone, this is genuinely so different to my normal life, but I'm so happy about it! I did a quick post earlier this year going over some of the things I've got going on this year, so I thought I'd share some posts about how I'm preparing for these with regards to my fibro.
First up I've got two hen do weekends for two amazing bride to be's this year. I am so excited and crazily happy that I've been asked to attend. I've got one in Benidorm and one in Leeds, and they're both going to be jam packed with activities to make it an unreal time. But with this comes a lot of preparation on my end, to make sure I know I can have a fantastic weekend without a dreaded fibro flare. Whilst I'm fully expecting to need a bit of recovery after, I'd like to try and make it through both weekends without a flare up.

Getting to know me

Hello! This page is just a quick introduction to me!

My name is Abbey, I am 24 and I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in September 2016.

I live in the Durham area, and I work in Newcastle in a DNA testing laboratory.

I also have joint hypermobility. I suffered with 'clicky hips' since birth, and so my hips and anything below are the worst for my pain.

I love dogs, Disney, Marvel Films, Christmas and food. My all time favourite TV shows are The Office US, Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I have a list as long as my arm of shows I want to watch, but always find myself rewatching these!

This blog is simply somewhere for me to come to terms with fibromyalgia. A little bit about my day to day life, how Fibromyalgia affects my life and basically just what I get up to! I love going out and trying new places for food (and also going to the same place over and over) so I'll be posting some reviews of my favourite places to eat, and some new ones that I've never tried before! Basically - I have no idea what this blog is!

I'll try my best to help anyone suffering, but everyone is different so what works for me might not work for you :)

And most importantly, I want to show that your life doesn't have to be ruled by your chronic illness. I'm trying my best to stay as the same old Abbey as before, so this blog will share that journey with you all :)
