How amazingly adorable are these crocheted awareness ribbon magnets made by the lovely talented @hwissel !
I absolutely love supporting small businesses and any that I can find who make something awarenessie (so not a word but it really fits amazingly well into my description! Lol) well....i love to give them a very deserved plug!
As most of my followers would know, I am a CRPS warrior! Or at the least someone who fights this crappy excrutiating condition 24/7 & as it isnt known by most of the public....I am a proud advocate of spreading the word and sharing much needed info regarding not only the condition, but also how it affects your loved ones and your life in general.
The orange ribbon is a symbol for CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) as well as many other conditions/diseases.... one of which being Multiple sclerosis (MS). A few of my beautiful friends unfortunately live and fight MS so i grabbed a magnet for each of them....as well as some amazing CRPS fighters as well...... *shhhh!! They dont know yet that i will be sending them one each*.
The green and purple ones are ribbons that i doubt very few would know what it depicts....but they were made for someone who owns a huge chunk of my heart!
Our absolutely gorgeous daughter, my full time carer and practically my best friend Brodie Jade!! 😙😙
Bro was diagnosed with a condition called Hemiplegic Migraines (HM) a few years back after having episodes from around the age of 8-9. She is now 17 and thanks to a strict medication regime she may only experience 1-2 attacks a year....this is in comparison to the approx 2nd daily episode she had for over a year!! Seeing your child lose control down one entire side of their body and looking like they were having a stroke is terrifying!! It is very hard to find awareness merchandise for HM so she was lost for words and her grin was massive when we opened the package sent all the way from America and she saw just what was inside.
Thank you so much Hope for all the work you put into these gorgeous angels xo
If anyone else makes something specially for either of these conditions, i would love to see your work!
Trying to study and can’t think. My head is stuck between blank, depressed, and overwhelmed with pain. At least I have my fur babies, and all wrapped up in their winter gear!
The thing with chronic illnesses and chronic pain, it causes chronic fatigue and brain fog. Have you ever had a pain that makes your skin burn and your bones ache, your muscles all feel pulled and every nerve in your body feels like it’s being struck by lightning. It leaves you exhausted, too tired to care about the pain, but too tired to care about anything else either.
And here’s where it gets scary. I don’t know how hard to push back for motivation and energy, because that pure exhaustion is blocking a lot of my pain.
This is what I mean when I say I’m tired, this is what I mean when I say I need a break (my full reaction to those types of articles is on my blog). Take care of your loved ones with chronic pain and understand when we just look lazy to you, that maybe we really need this break.
You have to hear Brendon talk about this incredible new technology he has for handling chronic pain without any drugs, needles, or Band-Aid! This is truly revolutionary and I am so proud to know him. Anybody dealing with chronic pain of any kind whether diagnosed or not should definitely listen to this and watch the full video on Facebook.com/TreatTheSource and get in touch with Radiant Pain Center for your free consult! @pbrendonlundberg @radiantpainreliefcentres #chronicpain#chronicpainmanagement#nervepain#neuralgia#neuropathy#treatthesource
Ok friends, if you know me, you know I’ve dealt with my fair share of chronic illness and soreness. Between my husband’s back injury, our daughter teething, and a fusion in my spine, chronic joint muscle nerve and head issues, and Celiac autoimmune... we try to stay positive but let’s just say we have our fair share of down days! Days snuggling, buried in our bed with all the shades closed. Thankfully, those days are getting fewer. These are the oils in the starter kit our family reaches for most on those tough days. Lavender and copaiba for teething and reducing swelling. Panaway, Frank, lavender and peppermint mixed with carrier oil (in a rub) on all our sore muscles, and on our temples and forehead for head tension. These oils are liquid gold!! Plant-based medicine- cabinet fillers if ya catch my drift! Today is the LAST DAY to snag this kit for ONLY $119. 🤗🤯Link in profile👆🏼#lemonandleafPSK#lemonandleaftribe
