I'm joining Melanie today in her carnival to get us all on track to make the best use of the next 42 days.
Yes, we only have 42 days to shop for that "perfect" gift for all the special someones in our lives!
I thought I'd put a little different twist on mine today.
I have fibromyalgia, and though I think I've maybe mentioned it twice in the two plus years that I've been blogging . . . I thought it might be interesting to see what kind of special gifts you can find for those who suffer from constant pain that won't kill them : )
Just try mentioning the word fibromyalgia in a group of women you spend time with on a regular basis. I guarantee you'll find at least one who either has it or knows someone close to them who does.
So many people consider this a "condition" that is all in your head or a "catch-all" for all the symptoms no one can explain.
I am here to tell you it is real. It is painful. It is robbing tons of women . . . and some men of a fully mobile and fully functional life.
Take a look at some of the links below and see if someone in your life who deals with daily pain can find encouragement and support in one of these gifts. Just the fact that you acknowledge what they have is real and want to help is huge. Go take a look!
- A Fun Tote Bag here.
- Fibromyalgia Aware -- a great magazine chock full of information and encouragement.
- Awareness Items -- to get the word out about fibromyalgia.
- Jewelry -- a pretty bracelet that brings HOPE
- An Abundance of Apparel with a message here.
- Great Holiday Tips . . . whether you have fibromyalgia or not.
- Items to ease the pain
Happy Shopping!! Now, go as quickly as you can over to Melanie's place at Don't Try This at Home to find tons of other gift ideas to stun and delight the ones you love (or those you just have to buy for at the holidays).
Sign up with her Mr. Linky and join in with a list of your own!
