Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 

International Women’s Day!!

2014 Theme Is Inspiring Change!

 

To all you wonderful women out there, happy International Women’s Day! You rock!

Let’s all inspire change not just today but everyday! On step forward for strength, equality and absolute wellness!


Each year International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first
International Women’s Day was held in 1911. (Forgive my posting a day late, was celebrating my birthday!)


Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social
achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational
institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.

Chronic illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Rheumatoid and arthritic conditions can be a long hard road for the sufferer to endure. To make matters worse, it can be devastating when disability benefits deny your claim. As if the stress of having to deal with unexplained, chronic pain and fatigue isn’t enough?

“A lot of people being denied ODSP really do qualify at the very onset when they apply. But they are denied…Some of these people have to go through the whole appeal system, and it’s costing a lot of taxpayers’ money, when they shouldn’t have been denied in the first place. I fail to see how this is streamlining the process to work better for disabled people and to work better for the taxpayers.” Sonia Levesque-Parsons, West End Legal Services, Ottawa, November 29, 2000.

These illnesses are predominantly woman’s illnesses, they have been around for over 100 years yet we are still having to defend the fact that we are indeed suffering with real pain. Just exercise, take two aspirins and call me in the morning, right doc?

DAWN was designed to help women in Ontario fight for their disability. You can check out DAWN in the link below (the www.incomesecurity.org link doesn’t work, budget cutbacks maybe?):

What exactly are we celebrating with International Woman’s Day? March 8, 2011 is the Global Centenary Year and we are honoring the work of suffragettes who campaigned for woman’s right to vote. 100 years ago they ran the first International Woman’s Day event in 1911.

Today,  we celebrate all women and their successes and it is all on my birthday, very cool! So to all women, young and old, you are beautiful. Let’s make the next 100 even more powerful! With all we have achieved since then, who knows what we can accomplish in the next 100.
