Warming Buddy

I ran across this cute little giraffe at Aldi today and wanted to share my new friend with everyone.  He is a warming buddy that you heat up in the microwave and use in place of a heating pad.

I know my Endo Sisters can relate to having the extra appendage of a heating pad.  I also use heat and/or ice during facial pain flare-ups.  I rarely leave home without a heating pad or ice pack.  I use them every day and carry them back and forth between work and home.

I thought this little cutie might bring a smile to my face when I’m struggling with pain and battling the inevitable flare-ups.

I probably wouldn’t have splurged by spending $9.99 for myself but since my Mom was with me and will do anything to make me smile, I got to bring him home.

I look forward to trying him out soon.  :mrgreen:

FurBall Friday (belated) : CAT Scan

Better late than never.  Here is our FurBall Friday post on Saturday.  I would definitely prefer this CAT scan to the ones I’ve had over the past few years.  😉

P.S. ~ We’re only 1 follower away from our goal of having 100 followers by the end of 2014.  So close!  Meeting this goal will be better late than never too and it looks like we’ll be there soon.  Thanks to everyone who has made it possible.  We are glad you’re here.

I’m hoping to find the time and energy to create new Facebook and Twitter accounts to accompany our blog in the near future.  😀  We hope you will join us there to help spread support and awareness for invisible illness and chronic pain.  Stay tuned for updates on our progress!

Wishing you all a low pain level day!

EndoSisters, ring in the New Year with Hope!

Here is a wealth of great information, which I will reblog to share with my #EndoSister readers and also so I can keep it handy to try some of these items that I haven’t tried yet for myself. 🙂

2015 HopeHappy New Year!!!!

And we’re going to start this one off right for my EndoSisters!  I know our medical community has left us feeling neglected, in pain, helpless, or hopeless…BUT there is hope in the non-traditional medical world.  While we continue to wait for modern medicine to find a cure, we can still take steps to help our bodies fight this disease!

For many sufferers of Endometriosis, they have found relief from some, if not all, of their pain through natural methods!  I do not always write about these methods, purely because I haven’t tried them all and cannot offer you my own personal experience…but today I will!

If any of these methods may offer you or I relief in 2015, then it’s worth a try!

And if you have any methods you’d wish to add to this list, please drop a comment below 🙂

Happy New Year!!!

I’m feeling unusually optimistic about the new year.  2014 was difficult for my family and myself.  Chronic illness and pain seemed to dominate our lives and it will likely continue to play a big part in the days to come in 2015.

Despite our challenges, I am ready to take back whatever parts of my life that I can and try to make the best out of this hand that we have been dealt. Continue reading
