I was literally just a 14-year-old that was just only diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. It was 2007, and Myspace was still the going social media website. I was desperately looking for someone online to talk to, because there were no local support groups, either. But even on Myspace, there weren’t too many places to talk about my experiences.
It took a few years, and when I was 17, I started “Fibro Fighterz.” That was what Positivity in Pain was originally. But, as I aged, more diagnoses continued to roll in. There was degenerative disc disease, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and of course the most terrible that still plagues me, endometriosis.
I switched the name to Positivity In Pain because I knew that I wasn’t the only one who was suffering with all different kinds of physical issues and mental health issues. That is when Positivity in Pain was created. PiPSTER’s Place, our completely private Facebook group followed shortly thereafter.
Now, 15 years later, we are 131,000 strong on our main Facebook page, and in our group, we have around three-thousand members that are very close-knit and many post everyday in the group.
