Hi,
I hope everyone is having a good day, or at least I hope that your today is better than yesterday. I have been trying to spread the word about chronic illness and wanted to let those of you who didn't know that September 13-19, 2010 is National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week. Nearly one half of the population are affected by a chronic illness, fibromyalgia being one of them.
 
Please stop by invisbleillness.com  so you can find more information about National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week. It's a positive, encouraging site so please take a moment to visit it if you can and let others know about it too :)
 
Blessings,
Shari

You're Welcome Sue and thanks for taking the time to go to the site. I've registered for the conferences and am really looking forward to them. It's so nice to have access to conferences such as this online. It really helps those of us who have difficulty traveling. We can even listen to them in our jammies if we want to! tongue
 
Gentle Hugs,
Shari

I hope this is okay with everyone, I want to bring this post back toward the first few pages since National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is getting closer.
 
 Due to the activity of this forum (which is great!) this post was getting buried.
 
I hope everyone's today was better than yesterday and hoping your tomorrow will be better than today!
 
Loving Hugs,
Shari

Hello,
Just wanted to give everyone an update about Invisible Illness Awareness Week. Yesterday's topic was very good. It was called "Living With Chronic Illness, Why it Hurts and How to Cope" and tomorrow will be interesting as well. Wednesday's topic will be on "Parenting with a Chronic Illness" and also "Tips on managing time when living with a Chronic Illness".  The conferences are 90 minutes long and are recorded so you can listen to them at any time. If you want to listen to them, you can go to  http://blogtalkradio.com/invisibleillnessconf
 
It's comforting to listen to people who address the challenges we face everyday while living with Chronic Illnesses, especially the invisible ones like Fibromyalgia. I'm sure those of you who are able to listen to Monday's conference will surely nod yeah your head in agreement to what the speakers are saying.
 
I hope everyone's today is better than your yesterday and your tomorrow will be even better than your today. :-)
Blessings,
Shari
