One of my favorites Graceful Agony asks a question for this month’s Blog Carnival. What is a great Holiday gift for a Chronic Babe suffering with chronic illness or pain? Well, here are a few things that I would love to get as a gift. (Take notice Joe-Man)
This bed lounge is just the thing any Gal needs on one of those days that you just can’t get out of bed. You can only lay flat for so long before you really start hurting, and this looks like a wonderful solution. I want one.
Some of us get really cold during the winter and these pajamas from L.L. Bean look comfy and cute. I love the collar that you can flip-up to keep your neck warm, and the little pouch on the front where you can bury your hands when they get cold is genius. If only I could find pajamas with pockets! Stash you kleenex, your lip balm and your phone in the them…no more walking around the house searching for your lost phone!
These slippers from REI look absolutely perfect for a klutz like me. Warm but not too flimsy and slippery for walking around the house and going up and down stairs.
These collections from Boston tea look so tempting, I think I might order some for myself, wrap it and put it under the tree. So many to choose from, and what Gal doesn’t like a decent cup of tea when they feel down?
Medications and some chronic conditions can mess with your skin. But I love this Hope in a Jar! No strong smell, it’s not greasy and you can order it on-line! How great is that?
And, then of course we all need a Kindle. I would like one, all my friends have one, Joe-Man don’t you think I need one?
Every Chronic Babe has days when she can’t get out of bed, or off the couch. Whatever they are ailing from, CFS, ME, Fibromyalgia, RA or the hundreds of chronic and rare conditions that cause unbearable pain or debilitating fatigue, they all need pampering sometimes.
The Holidays are such a wonderful time to tell your Babe that you understand and support her with her daily struggles. Show her that you love her, and she will feel so much better!
So, here is start to your Holiday shopping list…print it up and put it on the fridge so everyone can see it!
