“It takes a village to raise a child.” I have heard this phrase for the greater part of my life and I am sure that most of you have as well. And for good reason, the statement is absolutely true!!

But have you ever taken the time to think about what else it may take a village to do? I have soooooo many in mind. Today however, my mind is on a particular village that is essential to me.

I was invited to participate in a wonderful event that took place on Friday August 23, 2019. Actually the event takes place on the fourth Friday of every month. “Fourth Friday Fibro Day” is an awesome village that I just discovered via invite.

Amazingly, yesterday marked the one year anniversary of this wonderful group geared towards raising Fibromyalgia Awareness.

The purpose is to through Facebook, Instagram, and other avenues of social media raise awareness of Fibromyalgia. By wearing something in the color PURPLE , taking a selfie, and posting it on social media along with the designated hashtags for the cause, awareness is growing.




As a fibromyalgia warrior and advocate, this movement facilitated by The Fibromyalgia Pain Chronicles, this is now a part of my village! Thank you.

I also thank Angel Williams of Angels Lupus Journey for the invite.

As a warrior of autoimmune disease, as I said these are my villages. I celebrate, support, and value them.

Who is in your village?
