May is Fibromyalgia Awareness Month with May 12th being highlighted as Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. One way to raise awareness is to ask your local or state government to create a proclamation.
This accomplishes several goals for the fibromyalgia community. It’s an opportunity to educate local officials about how much fibromyalgia is affecting their constituents. Issuing a proclamation is a newsworthy event, and might help you garner news coverage in your town. You can also post about the proclamation on social media and let others know they are not alone!
We created a Fibromyalgia Awareness Proclamation and included the Support Fibromyalgia Network, Veteran Voices For Fibromyalgia, and Looms For Lupus. Groups like Being Fibro Mom, Men With Fibromyalgia, FibroMomBlog, Fibro Life, and other advocates support May awareness events for fibromyalgia!
