Benefits of Fibromyalgia Support Groups

Excuse us mainstream medicine for borrowing your phrase – benefits outweigh the risks. But, dealing with fibromyalgia is a lonely business and members of fibromyalgia support groups agree, the mental and emotional benefits outweigh the risks.

You need a safe place where you can vent and find companionship and compassion. You need the comfort that comes when someone is listening. You need to know you aren’t in this alone.

What are the Benefits and Risks of Local Fibromyalgia Support Groups?

Everybody hurts! If you decide to join a local group, you will meet other fibromites who understand the black cloud you’re living under. If you met them on the street, you wouldn’t realize they were kindred spirits. That’s why fibromyalgia has been dubbed the invisible syndrome.

Since there is a tendency for fibromites to isolate, over time depression is bound to follow. Joining a neighborhood group of others dealing with fibromyalgia will encourage you to let go of self-pity, share your therapeutic experiences and listen to group members dialogue about their journey.

Coping with fibromyalgia is a constant learning experience. Support groups discuss medications – what works, what doesn’t – and alternative therapies.

If you’re shy or uncomfortable talking face-to-face about your personal life, local fibromyalgia support groups may not be a risk you’re willing to take. Yet, how awesome would it be to meet a group member at the grocery store, who smiles and gives you a bear-sized hug? Would the benefits outweigh the risks?
