Efi's Brainy and Gutsy Journey

Meet our friend, Efi (@fibro_what)!

She’s a German Illustrator🎨 living in Spain and through the years has been suffering from different chronic conditions, like asthma, fibromyalgia, atopic dermatitis, food sensitivities, etc. 🫁

Efi draws 🖌 about her daily struggles 🤕 to manage her conditions and finds inspiration to put these into her illustrations to both explain and raise awareness while also drawing strength from those to accept and learn to live with her chronic conditions.

While looking for answers and finding solutions, she discovered that it's important to understand her body and its functions. including how and why it feels pain.

In short, she started learning about her chronic pain conditions and how her therapy helped her to accept and take control of her health. 💯🏆

She also started to understand that her chronic issues were linked to her brain and leaky gut. So she uses and draws fibromyalgia as a character in her comics.🧠💙
