If only hugs didn’t hurt

The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association sponsors activities and increase opportunities to take part.  Events extend throughout the world and through the month of May.

When people say, “But you look so good”, how do you reply?  Although comments like these are meant to be complimentary, they underscore the importance of speaking up about chronic pain illnesses.

Today, unlock as many doors as you possibly can.  Have you found anything that brings relief?  Share your tips with others who are suffering, that they might try the same thing.  As we find answers along the way, we can also show support for others.

The best secret weapon I’ve found is Organo Gold Gourmet Black Coffee.  This wonderful instant coffee has eased my fibromyalgia symptoms significantly.

The days of suffering in silence are over.  It’s time to fight back and take action against a disease that has taken too much.  🙂






This morning for the first time in a few days, I eased into my day with a cozy robe, a good devotional book and a nice hot cup of coffee.  These days I don’t just drink any brand of coffee, but I enjoy Organo Gold black coffee because it helps my fibromyalgia.

As I understand it, our bodies thrive when they are well oxygenated.  The less oxygen, or the less P.h., the more likely sickness and disease is to invade.  Now I’m not a doctor or pharmacist, but I am a person who has felt better since using this coffee.

A friend on facebook read a whine of mine (that’s my name for it) on my timeline.  I was complaining, which is something I try not to do.  In this case, however, I am glad I did because this sweet lady sent me several packets of gourmet coffee.  I can’t say the fibro is gone (I wish), but I can say I feel better.

This sounds like an advertisement for Organo Gold, but trust me, it is not.  I have no affiliation whatsoever with the company.  It’s just me telling the truth about my personal experience with the product.

It apparently has something to do with an ingredient found in mushrooms (of all things). Ganoderma infused products help the body stay on the alkaline side, which promotes better health.

A special shout out and thank you to my friend for sending me such a generous amount of this great coffee!  God sent you my way.  He takes such good care of His own!

Oh – and did I mention it tastes good too?  As the name would indicate, it is a gourmet black coffee.  It’s never bitter or too strong.  The widespread pain of fibromyalgia has not gone away for me, but it has certainly become more manageable in my case.

Organo Gold has a facebook page!

Since the company is in Canada, you can save some money on shipping by purchasing through Amazon.

I’ve taken some interesting turns with my health in the past week, but one thing I can say is that my fibromyalgia is helped by this wonderful coffee.  I hope you will give Organo Gold gourmet black coffee a try if you have fibromyalgia.  I won’t promise that it will help you like it has helped me, but it wouldn’t hurt to try it.  🙂





I would go so far as to say that practicing gratitude even as you complain about your aches and pains is acceptable and proper. God understands.   – Linda Palmer

There are days when diabetes is difficult, or fibromyalgia is frustrating, or migraines are mischievous – but this is one of those rare days when it all hits at the same time! WIPE OUT!!!  My fasting blood sugar was horrible because my other conditions are present. The second I woke up I felt my head playing “Wipe Out” and knew that Excedrin Migraine would be among the morning drugs I’d take.

When my first foot hits the floor I say ‘Thank’ and when my second foot hits I say ‘You’.  Then I say ‘Thank You’ all the way to the bathroom.  A grateful heart is the key to happiness.  – Roma Downey

On days like this, when my health is such a challenge, I’m still grateful to be alive – to be living. I’ll admit that I wanted to go back to sleep – and I really wanted to lie back down when I tried to get out of bed and every joint in my body felt like burning coals. I will practice gratitude – yes, even today. God is good – all the time!

We have a storm moving into our area. I do not watch the weather – I don’t have to. When I feel this bad I know the humidity is very high and we have some rain moving in. I’m more reliable than any weather man. I should get the weather man’s paycheck. LOL!!!

I’m alive to complain – praise God!!! I am grateful.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. – Psalm 46:1

Now – I have to stop looking at this computer. The light sears my brain – right behind my right eye. Tomorrow is a new day. I will find comfort today in the knowledge that God is my refuge and strength!  🙂
