May 12th is the National Fibromyalgia Day of Awareness. If someone you know or love suffers from this chronic pain disorder, please consider taking the Pledge to Care. Fibromyalgia can make life seem extremely desolate and knowing that people care and are willing to help can make all the difference.
When I was diagnosed ten years ago (at the tender age of 20!) it seemed like a death sentence! After all, I was 20 and I felt like I was 90! Now, at 30, because of all of the advances in treatment I can do so much more and live a much more productive life. For instance, I can knit every day now and that’s a matter of life and death for a knitter (and their family!) LOL
There’s still so much to learn though. We don’t know what causes FM, for instance, and that could be key in finding a better treatment or even a cure. That all costs money though.
So…in honor of National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day I’m hosting an online Tupperware party with all proceeds going to support the work that the National Fibromyalgia Association does. If you need some Tupperware, or have been thinking about buying some, would you consider supporting this cause? For each piece of Tupperware that is purchased the buyer will be entered into a drawing for a Loopy Ewe gift certificate. (Sheri deserves some good to come her way for all the good she does for everyone else!)
Please consider helping this cause…According to the NFA website: “Fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. The disorder affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6% of the world population.”

Thanks for your help and may your days always be healthy!
