I just love what the National Fibromyalgia Association has came up with to create fibromyalgia awareness- the Clothespin Challenge!

This challenge was created to help those without fibromyalgia understand what the pain feels like. Clothespins are actually clipped on the end of a person’s fingers and left there for a certain amount of time to help him to understand the pain we experience daily. For each minute the person stands the pain, they are asked to donate x amount of dollars to the NFA. If this challenge helps one person in our lives to understand the pain we experience daily, then I’m all up for the challenge.
