May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day!

Hi,

A few weeks ago I was thinking of a way to make my family and friends more aware of Fibromyalgia without sending them an email with a bunch of links.

Then I remembered that Fibromyalgia Awareness Day is coming up on May 12th....so I got online and searched around for some ideas.

I ended up ordering 20 Fibromyalgia Awareness buttons and a tshirt with same design for myself. I am going to mail my family and friends a button along with a letter explaining Fibromyalgia. In the letter I'm going ask them to support me on May 12th by wearing the color purple and their button.

I received the buttons and tshirt the other day and they are great! I am still working on the letter...but hope to have it done next week.

I've never done anything like this before but I am really excited about it!

Is anyone else doing anything?

Mom and Farmgirl,

I am not sure if I am allowed to post the site but if you do a google search for Fibromyalgia Awareness buttons...you should get a few sites that sell them. There are alot of neat choices! It took me forever to decide which one to get.

Glad you both like the idea!

I had went straight to googling and found a site that is all about getting awareness out and has tons of items as well as info. Theres a couple books I wanna get. I will get some things but will continue to buy things and sending to friends and family.

Re: May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day!

I want to participate in awareness, I want to shout it from the rooftops, but I don't want to be "out" at work.

I have a few other medical issues that people at work DO know about, (when I fractured my leg, that one was hard to keep secret!) but the fibro I want to keep to myself a while longer.
