Día mundial de la fibromialgia

Good Morning:

Yes, today is World Fibromyalgia Day and the so-called “invisible” diseases, so today it was about giving the best of each and informing citizens about the existence of these diseases.

We have been at Doctor Negrín Hospital, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. There I went with the companions of the association Afigranca and there we were informing everyone who wanted and gave us some of their time to know more about us. I’m so glad I was; I’m so glad that I could help them to know us a little more. I am glad that I have been able to contribute to the fact that our disease – really unknown as I could see today too – reaches more people. It has been a morning of much information and many types of people. There were those who were interested in the subject, there were those who did not want to know anything – at least, there were those who went right into the hospital to approach the unit of pain and there were those who told you that they knew someone who was suffering. Most of the people collaborated in a spectacular way, attending to us and recognizing the work of those who were there to talk.

It was a morning of illusion to know more companions and to be able to give me to the cause, but it has also been a morning that has taken its toll, because now I am in a lot of pain, especially in the legs and neck and back . My hands are swollen and I can not move much and I write with difficulty but I could not stop telling you the enriching experience that I have lived with some of the association’s partners. Thank you so much for everything; If we continue uniting our voices, surely we will get recognized and treated with dignity.

Thanks for reading, I send kisses and hugs of cotton begging them to share to be able to help more people.

María Díaz.
