Thoughtful Thursday – FMS/CFS/ME Awareness Day!

Wearing purple (and telling people why) is one way to help promote awareness.

I don’t blog about this too much here, since this is our business blog, but both my mom and I have Fibromyalgia. We are also both epileptic, and my mom has lupus and other secondary health problems in addition to FMS. If you know someone with Fibro, Chronic Fatigue or Myalgic Encephalopathy, be sure to give them lots of gentle hugs!

FMS/CFS/ME are invisible, chronic, and can be debilitating. Often, they accompany one another, along with a host of possible symptoms: widespread pain, fatigue, muscle spasms, weakness, brain fog (similar to chemo brain,) flu-like symptoms, anxiety, depression, weight gain, sensitivity to light, sound, heat & cold, sensation of swelling, nerve pain, and the list goes on … Women tend to suffer from FMS/CFS/ME more often than men, but I can say first hand that men suffer from these diseases, too! My dad also has Fibro.

Please, educate yourselves and others about these syndromes. There is no cure, and very few healthy treatment options are available. Most people begin exhibiting symptoms in their early to mid 20’s, and while these diseases are not considered degenerative, symptoms can increase in severity due to weight gain and inactivity.

If you suffer from any of these syndromes, there’s comfort in numbers. Joining an online or in-person support group can do wonders. For support and other resources: http://fmcfsme.com/

Tuesday’s Treasure – There’s A Theme A Brewin’

We’ve been featured in several lovely treasuries over the past several days! Thanks to both of the curators. I’ve got to be honest, though, I’m sensing a theme, here:

Shhhh … Naturals by vintageprecious
Tranquility by BellinaCreations
Simplicity In Black and White by vintageprecious

It seems like all these ladies want for Christmas is a little peace and quiet! I couldn’t agree more.

Tuesday’s Treasure – All I Want For Christmas

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Despite a stubborn wisdom tooth trying to force its way into my mouth, it’s a beautiful day and there’s lots to be done.

As I was browsing through the etsy treasuries, I was so inspired by this one:

Psst Husband ... For Christmas I Want ...

I wasn’t necessarily inspired by the content of the treasury (although I love the clock and hanging terrarium kit!) I was inspired by the idea – what a great way to make a wish list! Create something beautiful, showcase etsy sellers’ items, hopefully make the front page, and give a little “ninja hint” to your significant other. P.S. – A “ninja hint” is just a term for a sneaky hint, or a sarcastic term for a not-so-sneaky hint, that my husband coined. Love him.

So, I decided to make my own wish list. Honey, hint, hint.

All I Want For Christmas

Tuesday’s Treasure – Treasury Jackpot

Beside the flu shot throbbing in my left arm (still – go get one!), this has been a great week. We’ve been fortunate enough to be featured in 4 treasuries since last weekend:

I Wonder If Monkeys And Bats Can Be Friends by alterdelenda

Maintain Simplicity by merriweathercouncil

The Curious Estate of Dr. And Mrs. Jedediah Tinnan, Lot 443 by palimpsestic

Stitching Together The Fabric Of Our Lives by ohlookitsarabbit

I’m not sure what brought on the treasury madness, but I like it!

This week, I’m cleaning up the apartment for a Premiere Jewelry Party I’m hosting for a friend. I’m also getting our Halloween costumes together! I found a cheap Dorothy costume, and am working on the scarecrow costume and background for Trunk Or Treat. After that, all we need is some thrifty clothing for a werewolf costume and we’re set.

Mom and I are getting ready for a yard sale next weekend, which will hopefully be a huge success so she’ll have less to move when she finds a new place. Also hoping the weather stays sunny and cool – prime sale conditions.

Hope everyone is having a great week, too!
