Some of you may know this; some of you may not. Everybody knows that the pink ribbon signifies breast cancer awareness. Did you all know that the purple ribbon signifies Fibromyalgia awareness? I apologize if I'm telling you all something you already know. Cafepress.com had a ton of t-shirts, buttons, mugs, bumper stickers, tote bags, etc. that you can order. I ordered a small button with a purple ribbon and had several people ask me what it was for. Maybe if we wore these things, or even just bought some purple ribbon and made ribbons, people would ask and at least know that this disease exists. Maybe this is a way to spread the word. I don't know....it's just a thought. I wear my ribbon button on my lanyard that holds my ID badge for work. I know a lot of us are on fixed incomes, but the small buttons, and even the bigger buttons, were only a couple dollars. Apparently it's up to us to bring this disease to the forefront. The more people that know it exists, the more people may research it and learn about it.
