I hesitate to share my deepest thoughts or actual crazy experiences because I was brought up to be a good girl and you don’t share those things. I’ve been blogging for more that two years now and most of my posts are travels and adventures but it’s difficult to convey the real me. Tonight,  however, after half a bottle of wine, with Athena and Darren in bed, I have a few things, both positive and negative, that I want to say. Like most bottles of wine, there is a body and a lingering after taste and the dreaded wine headache to follow but it’s always worth that indescribable taste in your mouth while it’s happening. That’s this post for me. I’ve never been able to just type so freely so here goes.

Spoonie Clothing Line

eljay1980:

This is a great idea… anything that can help ease the discomfort has got to be worth looking in to in my opinion!! Lingerie, particularly bras tend to be the worst issue for me… struggle to find one which I can tolerate all day but is flattering. People seem to forget that just because we cannot bare to be trussed up with straps/wires etc we still want to feel attractive.

I am supposed to be working on a post about essential oils and I am trying but I’ve been distracted by the idea of a spoonie clothing line.
This would be something designed for spoonies and by spoonies. Wearing professional business attire is uncomfortable enough but for spoonies, those zippers, buttons, clasps, pockets and closures are like little torture devices. With the right materials and considerations, I think we, spoonies could design a comfortable and functional line of clothing that wouldn’t be so painful. Underwear also causes a lot of discomfort as well as lingerie. Spoonies have the knowledge to make these issues of the past and of course we can design loads of cute tees to raise awareness! Okay, maybe I’m getting a but ahead of myself here but I feel like this is a venture worth exploring!
Half my energy is wasted trying to find an outfit that…

Fibromyalgia – not a good day

Circle-of-Hope-fibromyalgia-awareness-22624031-553-720

Today is not a good day. I did not have a good night.

I very rarely write about my health here on our blog, I try to keep it business related however as my pain levels are slowing down the processing of your orders then I wanted to give you a quick explanation of what’s going on.

At the beginning of this year I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after suffering with pain in various places for a number of years. I am now permanently on medication which helps most of the time but as the weather changes, the pain levels increase. Fibromyalgia also contributes to insomnia. Even on nights where I appear to sleep straight through, I still seem to wake up more tired than when I went to bed.

You can read more about Fibromyalgia HERE

Fibromyalgia causes widespread pain throughout the body as well as increased levels of sensitivity, joint stiffness, weakness, muscle spasms, depression and anxiety, sleeplessness, fatigue and many other symptoms.

fibromyalgia

We know of several people who suffer from this condition and sadly there is no cure, it can be managed with prescription medication however this is not always effective.

This post has not been written for sympathy but to raise awareness of this condition and to let our customers know why there may be a slight delay with their orders.
