Hello There!

FibroJedi's Fibro and Gaming Blog - graphic is my SWTOR Jedi Shadow
Welcome to the digital home-from-home of FibroJedi (Catch Me on Twitter). Here I will occasionally blog about life with Fibromyalgia.

However the bulk of my posts centre around gaming on The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO), especially festival/event guides.

I also write lore-faithful LOTRO FanFiction.

Who Am I?

I am thirty-something, fighting many symptoms of Fibromyalgia and I live in Scotland. I have a wife, a daughter and a cat. I also drink far too much coffee.

Due to chronic pain, I can no longer hold down a ‘normal job’, so am looking to support my family through a little through this blog.

Find out more about me in You Behind the Illness.

Why FibroJedi?

I chose the name FibroJedi as ‘Fibro’ is the shortened version of ‘Fibromyalgia’ (What is Fibromyalgia?) and I have more in common with the Jedi philosophy than the Sith Code.

Though as you’ll see from this site, I’m not averse to role-playing and used to write SWTOR FanFiction about the Sith. I enjoy both sides of the Force, in reality!
The character I’ve written about for the longest time is a Shadow Jedi, Cor-Jhan. So still Jedi, kinda.

My ‘Projects’

  • Patreon: Get early access to nearly all blog posts!
  • This Blog: of course this site is a project too! LOTRO guides, Fibromyalgia stuff and LOTRO FanFiction.
  • Drawing as Rest: This is a hobby and not something I’m ever looking to turn into income. You can see completed pieces on my DeviantArt profile. WIP drawings are periodically shared on Ko-Fi.


Find Me In-Game

If you want to find me in-game, then that’s usually okay. Sometimes I just need to shut the world out though, so please be understanding. Here are character names you can message or add to friends lists!

LOTRO

Evernight
Ayrthir, Caethir, Nyahwyn

Crickhollow
Lothver, Rubybella

SWTOR

Darth Malgus
Originals: Cor-Jhan (Republic), Talitha’koum (Empire).

2021: I have begun to very slow reintroduce SWTOR into my gaming. But I’ve had a rough few weeks and haven’t got into rhythm again yet. From August I hope to have at least one session a week in SWTOR.

May The Spoons Be With You.
