Supporting a Loved One Dealing with Fibromyalgia

(805) 200-4102

Fibromyalgia is often referred to as an invisible illness. In fact, it can be hard for friends and family to understand or empathize with people dealing with Fibromyalgia because of the lack of understanding within the area. There are many things you can do to help a family member or friend dealing with Fibromyalgia.

Educate Yourself

To truly support your loved one, it is best for you to learn about the condition as well as the symptoms that your loved one is experiencing on a daily basis. This will help you better understand what they’re going through. Awareness is definitely increasing, but it is still very poorly understood.

Help Them Develop A Daily Routine

Try to help your loved one develop a daily routine that they can execute well. This will allow your loved one to keep active and feel accomplished with what they’re doing. The key to managing and understanding Fibromyalgia is to know the boundaries and work with them providing the best means of in-home care and support.

Support Them to Keep Up with Daily Activities

When people are dealing with Fibromyalgia, it is important for them to keep active and moving around. Gentle, correct, and easy movement is better than no movement at all. The key to feeling better is to keep your activity at a good level.

Support Them

It is important that your loved one dealing with Fibromyalgia knows that if they don’t feel well or are in pain, it is okay to rest and listen to their body. It is best for you to understand this and support them by not judging them when they need to take time out. Fibro can be very emotionally difficult for everyone. 

It can also have a severe effect on mental health, as well as physical health.

Encourage Them to Improve Their Condition

It is always best to try to make the most out of a bad situation. It is definitely possible to lead a good life with Fibromyalgia with good support from professionals. With this help, it is fairly easy to treat symptoms and manage them with a positive approach. 

It is very useful for you to encourage your loved one to seek help.

Fibromyalgia can be painful and debilitating. That is why you need to know how to best support your loved one. If your loved one is looking for 24/7 high-quality outpatient hospice and palliative care, contact La Bella Vita Hospice today.
