Her pain was chronic alright but anyone who knows anything about her life knows it was the result of an almost fatal bus accident when Frida was young. How she lived her life so fully while in such pain is inspirational and influenced many of her paintings. To even suggest however she may have had fibro makes a mockery of both Frida and those who have it.
Thanks for sharing this. "I personally think the trauma of her accident and subsequent medical procedures caused the pain she endured but many people, with chronic pain of many kinds, like to use her as their strong mentor because of her bravery in taking her pain and transforming it into paintings. She presented herself as an image of strength and defiance in her public life and she will always be glorified for this." This is all from a previous post I wrote on this site.
Wow amazing photo of Frida Kahlo!
