Surviving Bloodstock Festival with Fibromyalgia

Having been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the end of 2013, I wasn't sure exactly what impact it would have on my BOA experience or what I would need to do to compensate for my reduced energy and ongoing pain, while also trying to enjoy the festival. After experiencing the festival without making any provisions or allowances, I knew that in 2015 some things needed to change if I was to continue attending.
