The Fibromyalgia Association of Sweden (Fibromyalgiförbundet)
To manage fibromyalgia pain is a struggle, and the management strategies differ from individual to individual. In the March issue of our member’s magazine, we put the spotlight on one of our members who uses her creativity to get pain relief. Sonja David has been painting all her life, but it was only in recent years that she went public with her hobby. And she also noticed that it helped her fibromyalgia pain.
“Painting makes me enter another world, where I don’t feel any pain. It’s almost like meditation. Of course the pain comes back when I stop painting, but for a while I am totally pain free,” she says.
