Humor is a great tool for dealing with life's ups and downs. Being able to see the lighter side of things is a great skill for helping us overcome problems and research has shown that it can actually support both emotional and physical health.
Seeing the humorous side of things can help us overcome many of the stressful situations we may face when we live with chronic illness. When you see or read a joke that relates to what you are experiencing, or have experienced, it makes you feel connected to a wider community as you see that others understand and are going through the same things. That's why I love sharing #FunnyFibro humor on twitter each and every day and often on facebook.
For those of you who are not on those platforms I am sharing some of the Funny Fibro's I shared on them last month here and hope you enjoy them.
I also have a Fibromyalgia humor board on PINTEREST
and I share other Funny Fibro jokes about fatigue here.
