Krissy (Fibro Warriors)

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia while in High School. While having a diagnosis brought some consolation, I was ill prepared for how this disease would change my life. I’ve learned that life doesn’t end with this disease it’s altered. It’s important that you remember this. We are warriors! We get tired, frustrated and downright pissed off but we do not surrender to Fibromyalgia. Fibro has taught me how to persevere against all kinds of adversity. I continue to live through the pain and look for ways to inspire others to do the same.

Krissy’s has developed an amazing supportive community for those of us afflicted by Fibromyalgia. Her Instagram profile has been helpful to me when I need a go to resource to learn more about my condition and to also help others who are challenged by the condition. She is consistent with her updates and a very helpful and caring person.  — Chiko

She brings us together with an amazing balance of understanding, inspiration, solidarity, and humor. I look forward to her posts and often share with my friends and family going through some issues  — Katey
