For the people in your life who don't understand FM pain...

Invite them to take

The NFA Clothespin Challenge:

Here is how it works:
1. Place a clothespin on your finger
2. Set a timer for 30 minutes
3. See how long you can bear the pain. Did you leave the clothespin on for 15 minutes? 10? 5?
4. For each minute you adverted that clothespin pain, donate to the NFA-$20 a minute, $10 a minute, $5 a minute...
5. NOW. Imagine this pain forever... This should help you understand what it is like to live with constant pain - but people with FM can't just "remove" the pain the way you can remove that clothespin!
Interested in helping? Support the National Fibromyalgia Association. Every penny helps us support FM patients as they strive to manage their pain.

Spread Awareness!
