Do you have a friend or loved one that suffers from Fibromyalgia?
Would you like to have a better idea what they go through on a daily basis? Consider taking the National Fibromyalgia Association’s "Clothespin Challenge". I would be suprised if most people could last more than a couple of minutes, yet this is what your loved one goes through every day (all day).
When people ask me what it’s like to have Fibromyalgia, this is what I tell them. Imagine your worst day with the Flu. The extreme fatigue, the achiness, the utter inability to function normally. Now imagine waking up that way every day for the rest of your life… This would be a good day for someone with Fibromyalgia. If you factor in the extra pain they suffer through each day, you can see why some of us might be a bit crabby. My family knows when I am having a bad day, I don’t get crabby, but I tend to get very quiet and just want to be left alone and please don’t give me a hug (as much as I would like it, it hurts like hell).
The NFA is having thier first annual "Walk of Fame" to raise awareness and donations to study this disease. Would you consider giving a small donation to this cause? Millions of people would thank you. Just go to www.fmaware.org to find out more about this disease and how you can make a donation that could help us find some kind of better treatment, or maybe even a cure.
As a businessman with Fibromyalgia, I know what it’s like when you are no longer able to work a normal 9 to 5 job. Help those you know who have this disease and still manage to operate a business by using thier services or buying thier goods; The bills don’t stop coming and the mortgage is still due, yet many brave souls with Fibromyalgia continue to work through the pain rather than go on disability and become a burden to society.
