Fibromyalgia: Strategies to Change the Brain

Fibromyalgia: Strategies to Change the Brain

“One should sympathise with the colour , the beauty, the joy of life” , Oscar Wilde

Changing the neural pathways in the brain from ruminating about pain or various other symptoms of fibromyalgia can be achieved through various ways. I have tried two of the ‘hobbies’ that have helped me somewhat. One was sewing, (something I had never done before) by making quilts, mostly by hand! It was a difficult endeavour and costly! My hands would ache but the thrill of organizing colours and stitching them together brought me many hours of joy

The colours are what intrigued me and I searched diligently for bright fabric. I ended up making about 25 of them!

After a few years however, I gave up on this new hobby and recently have discovered another (cheaper) way to absorb my unquiet and ever wandering/anxious mind through adult colouring books. This may sound trivial to many but I can assure you, dear readers it is an intriguing pastime. Luckily, I found the ones by Wendy Piersall as I am extremely fond of mandalas.

Here is my first ‘art’ work!While it may seem childish to many, I can attest to the meditative aspect of colouring. Please do try it! This is one of several of Wendy Piersall’s books, time-consuming but relaxing. Now I know why those nuns made us colour within the lines! Mixing and matching colours gives me joy and often distracts me from my chronic pain!
