What's Norwex and Why's It So Good For Fibro Sufferers?

FF: Hi Ali! First off, welcome to Fibro and Fabulous! Please let the readers know a little bit about yourself and your company Norwex. AB: Hi everyone! My name is Alison Buonome but you can call me Ali. I live in Vernon, CT and I am a busy mom to 5 year old twin boys. I have lots of messes to clean and love my Norwex products. I used to despise cleaning but Norwex makes it so easy and I don't have to worry about my family being exposed to chemicals! Norwex’s mission statement is “Safe, Effective, Sustainable”. Yep that’s it. Our commitment to a brighter future starts with our product mission. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice effectiveness or sustainability when you choose a safer product. So we won’t put the Norwex label on it unless it meets all three criteria.
FF: What made you decide to get into the Norwex business? AB: As I said above, I am a mom to 5 year old twins boys. My boys were born premature at 33 weeks. I would put my kids to bed, go straight to the bathroom, close the d…

Sex, Men, and Fibro

***WARNING*** This installment is for readers 18 and over because it contains adult topics. Thank you for your understanding.

Something I cannot stress enough, and I've stressed it in my books and articles on this subject religiously, is that you have to have open communication with your partner. Likes and dislikes can change over the years-- or in a fibromite's case-- it can happen daily so never be afraid to speak up.

This OBGYN is spot on and she completely coincides with my views about men in relationships. Your man should be asking early and often in your sexual relationship what you like. And yes, it's even better if he asks you to show him. Men sometimes need-- pardon the pun-- hands on experience to learn for next time.

Why WE SHOULD NOT Apologize

In the times of the digital age many are looking for perfection. Maybe it's the screen that gives them the false-feeling OR maybe it's the feeling of a huge disconnect that does.

This post is about the later.

WHY?

Why do WE feel a disconnect these days from people EVEN WHEN THEY ARE RIGHT IN FRONT OF US!

Our "Z" generation will tell you there is no disconnect because they talk to their friends DAILY on the internet. And I MUST admit I've been doing the same with ALL of mine because the distance is TOO far to visit.

But with virtual do we expect face-to face perfection TOO much?

Think about it-- you let that internet friend you've never met face-to face slide because he/she is a million miles away. Do you do the same for your face-to-face friends you've known most of your life?

I will admit that sometimes I DO NOT do this. I will admit that I feel hurt and I SHOULD admit that to my friends.

Don't we expect our social media friends every time we do a &q…
