Frida’s Bed is the name of a novel by Croatian author Slavenka Drakulic about the Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
Kahlo suffered first through polio at the age of 6, and was later in a bad traffic accident that left her in chronic pain the rest of her life. She is thought now to have had fibromyalgia, as well, although they didn’t know what it was back then.
Long one of my idols, Kahlo is also an inspiration to many others. And now this little Tumblr blog can help inspire and uplift those of us who, like Kahlo, have pain, but keep going despite every opportunity to the contrary.
