A collection of small treasures I’ve found while out and about.
Featured On The Blog:
It’s hard for me to believe, but my blog turned 9 years old this summer. The sheer volume of words can be a bit overwhelming, so I’ve been pulling together a selection of posts that capture the highlights of the past 9 years. It’s a work on progress, but you can check out what I’ve done so far by clicking here, or by clicking on “My Story” in the right hand sidebar.
If you’d like more Cranky Fibro Girl, you can follow me on the social media account of your choice by clicking on the brown buttons in the sidebar.
You can click on the “share” buttons at the bottom of any post if you feel inspired to spread a little snarky love online.

I love a good story-especially a good mystery-and I also love TV. So I was thrilled to find this site, which offers a selection of some of the best British Crime and Mystery TV Series. I binge-watched all of “Broadchurch” a couple of weekends ago because it was such a good story, so I can highly recommend it if you’re looking for a place to start.
Circling back to the subject of overwhelm, I frequently feel paralyzed by the amount of information available in any given moment, on any given subject. So I was thrilled to discover theSkimm, which bills itself as “the daily email newsletter that gives you everything you need to start your day”. Every weekday I get a quick rundown of major news stories, with a variety of links to additional resources if I want to explore a story further.
Overestimated My Potential by Fightin’ The Fibro. Oh, how I recognized myself in this post by Fibro Facial Gal
You would expect that 20+ years of chronic myofascial pain and fibromyalgia would result in a more realistic gauge of my abilities, but, nope. Apparently reality is for other people.
I consistently am convinced I can do whatever I put my mind to, even if the evidence to the contrary is nudging my grossly overblown expectations into more realistic territory. Part of this issue is that I still want to get things done, dammit. Not a recipe for realism, I am afraid.
I just discovered Save a Spoon (@Spoonie_Life) on Twitter. I haven’t had a chance to explore very much yet, but I’m looking forward to discovering all her “tips & tricks to save every drop of energy possible”.
