Finally, A Way to Organize and Track Fibromyalgia

A good friend of mine just sent me information on a new app.  It is designed for people with FM or CFS to track not just symptoms, but pills, sleep patterns, pain, food on so on.

Finally!

This is such a complex illness it is impossible to keep track of what’s going on and how it affects us.

I just purchased the app at Amazon for my Kindle.  I haven’t explored it yet, so I don’t have any further details.  I just thought everyone would want to know about this right away.

    A few years back I tried keeping a very simple record of FM, sleep and mood. I did this for several months and then charted it using a spreadsheet program. Alas, it showed no recognizable patterns at all.

    When I read this post I created a graphic to illustrate what I found: http://wp.me/a73K2-1Nr

      That cracked me up. You’re right, what we discover in the end is that we go up, and then we come down. Why, who knows?

    I keep thinking I ought to get a smartphone so I can try some of the apps. Trouble is it takes so long to learn to use new phones (even basic ones) thanks to brainfog that I avoid replacing them till I absolutely have to. My current phone is literally held together with sellotape!

      I hear you. This app only seems to work on Android. I have a Kindle, so it works on that. But it’s complicated. I’m having trouble figuring it out.

        Thanks. I really wanted it to be representative of my personality and beliefs.

        It looks very interesting. I just started blogging in the Spring, and I don’t know where my blog is quite going. I just knew I wanted a blog. I don’t want to focus on FM too much. I want to focus more on how I got thorough the grief and despair of finding out I was sick and my life being taken away. I want to focus on how I got through the grief and made a life. I seem to be focusing on my art right now. I love the name of your blog. I’ve always been a rebel, ever since I can remember.

      I’m having trouble figuring it out. It tracks a whole lot of things, so I guess it has to be a bit complicated.

        I have a quick question to ask about the CFIDS and FMS self help class…is the textbook a paperback or hardcover? Just curious since I’m on the lookout for receiving it in the mail. Hope I get it soon–I can’t wait to take that class! 🙂

        I think it’s paperback, I really can’t recall. Brain fog.

    I started using FibroMapp at the first of the year. So far, I’ve only made a few daily entries so I haven’t had the opportunity to print reports or any of the other stuff yet but it does seem like it could be helpful.
