Set up a new store on Zazzle... to replace my old one

I set a new store for just invisible disability awareness items (opposed to my photography items as well on the Cafepress) and I'm using Zazzle because it seems more flexible in regards to clothing. It seems people can custom choose their clothes after I set up the design so to a different style, cloth type, men's or plus and that is a real bonus. But I have not obviously got around to setting up that much over there yet. You can view the store best Here as it lists the items by category and I have the categories at the top for chronic pain awareness, migraine awareness, fibromyalgia awareness and journals. I will be adding slowly every couple of days. Nevertheless here are some items to give you a peek of what is already there and you can check out the rest if you like...

As usual you will find my Store at the menu at the top of the page. I will have items showcased there from time to time as well as a link to the store. I will leave the Cafepress on there was well... although it is mostly prints, posters, cards and journals.


And a few Journals... I love journals!

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 



I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
