    Brandi, This is some wonderful information. I have a friend who suffers from fibro and I’m so excited to pass this news and link on to her. Thank you.

      I love to hear about someone passing information along to others with fibromyalgia! Please let me know if either of you have any questions! I’m always here to help.

    I have heard of the connection of these two before and really think you can find some relief with natural healing from both. Great share there are so many who suffer with this.

      Yes, I also believe natural healing can help with both. Not everyone can seek comfort in natural healing, so hopefully this information can help. Thanks for reading!

    It is a vicious cycle. My sleep isn’t consistently good but it’s better than it was when I worked full time. Being more physically active with my little one helos. But then Remicade nights are awful as I have hardly slept in spite of getting Benadryl today. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday linkup. Will pin tomorrow to our linkup board.

      My sleep has improved when I changed some of my nightly habits. It’s not great, but better is good. Being physically active with the kids does help as long as I don’t overdo it. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Brandi,

    I’m a friend of Tanya’s and I came across your articles and blogs on her Pinterest board. I also have fibro and I’d like to invite you to share your articles with us at Create With Joy (I host several parties a week – Inspire Me Monday and Friendship Friday would be particularly suited for your health articles).

    I have a number of readers in my community who also deal with fibro and other chronic health issues who would benefit from this info and would love meeting you as well!

    Have a wonderful weekend as we ring in spring! 🙂
