If you suffer from FM or just support FM Awareness (you don’t have to have FM to do this) –

  • Open one of the picture templates below (just click on the picture)

  • Your computer will ask what you would like to do with the presentation – You want to OPEN it.

  • Once open, you will want to INSERT a lovely photo of yourself.

  • Then press 1) FILE; 2) SAVE AS, then pick a name & save it as type *jpg.

  • You can then upload it (and these directions) to your timelines/status and you’re ready to spread awareness


 LASTLY, post the picture on my Facebook page so I can add you to the VISIBLE ARMY album.

Original Template












  1. Is there a “I wear purple for my aunt” photo template?

  2. My name is Karen Apodaca & I am a fibromyalgia sufferer.

  3. Pingback: Happy Birthday to All of Us : FibroModem

  4. Maria Pilar Z Betita

    please add me to the ARMY.. it will make us stronger to fight this battle.

  5. I’d quite like a template for ‘I wear purple for my boyfirend’, though I’m sure you get asked for an infinite set of variations – all of them equally valid. But although male Fibro is even less visible, the purpose of this action is to make Fibro in general visible.

  6. I wish could support myself but… I can’t afford to support myself! It brake my heart that I can’t join the invisible army for me who was born with FIBROMYALGIA!!!!!

    It’s pretty sad that I can’t Support my Fibromyalgia cause I have to download Office 2013 and it cost $100 I was born with fibromyalgia!

  8. Thank you so much for all that you do. My sister and I both have fibromyalgia and she also has Systemic lupus. I would love to see an “I wear purple for my sister” graphic. Also the Facebook link doesn’t work, it goes to https://www.facebook.com/FMawareness2012 and it should be https://www.facebook.com/FMawareness 🙂

  9. I too am a fibromyalgia sufferer. I’m at times unsure which I suffer from most, fibro or lack of understanding because of it.

  10. This doesn’t work for linux systems, I would like to make a new one instead so I can get my picture on your list

Got an opinion?
