Favour to ask you – I have a photo entered in the Tommie Copper contest (so skip the story and go VOTE for it for my mom or read on…) and while it is a photo of my legs, I am actually not in it for myself at all. I am asking for your support to help me win this for my mother. (you can vote every 24hrs) *can’t vote from mobile devices*
My mom is such a strong person. She has been living with chronic pain for as long as I can remember. My father wasn’t much help when he was around and from as far back as I can remember my mom did every thing for us and for the house. When they finally ended their relationship my mom was just beginning to treat her recently diagnosed Rheumatoid arthritis. For those of you that don’t know Rheumatoid is basically where your white blood cells identify your joints as enemies and attack. Hence the swelling and build up on the joints.
Did this stop her?
Not at all my mom’s motto became “I don’t need a man” and boy, she sure
didn’t doesn’t. If she didn’t know something she would read about it and do it herself. She was known to own books titled “1, 2, 3 electricity” and “home decorating 101” – she rented a water saw from Home Depot and ceramic titled our entire main floor! There is really nothing this woman couldn’t do.
This “I don’t need help” attitude made her disease worse and later she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I obviously have no idea what it is like to live with that but later when I was in college and I met another person with that same disease I was in complete shock that my mom was so positive and able to do so much without complaint.
She really never gives up. She blew her knee out this year and still went on vacation – driving herself and walking the beach on crutches!
Then one day Jordan from Tommie Copper and I were discussing which sleeves I’d like to review on my blog and I just coincidentally had noticed that people with arthritis used them and said “Oh I think I’ll let my mom borrow my knee sleeves” – Jordan so kindly offered to give her one and as mentioned here in my original review – Within hours my mom noticed a difference. Since then we’ve bought her the full finger gloves for xmas and she wants MORE! She really swears by it.
Here is the review my mom wrote that I sent into Tommie Copper:
“I have suffered from the pain of rheumatoid arthritis and fybromyalgia for years. Many people have given me their ‘sure cures’ over the years. I usually give them a try, but none have actually done anything for me. Recently I injured my knee for the third time in eighteen months. My daughter said she had something I needed to try. She started to tell me all about Tommie Copper products. My knee had been so bad that I could hardly walk. I was no longer using my crutches, but I was still taking a lot of pain medication. She was so excited about this product, I gave it a try. I put it on and forgot about it. When I next went to get up, I couldn’t believe it. The pain was almost completely gone. I have been in physiotherapy for months and the Tommie Copper reduced the pain and swelling within hours.
People at work even noticed the difference and asked why I wasn’t limping any more. I told them all about Tommie Copper. Recently, I started using the compression gloves. I have tendonitis in my hand as well as a trigger finger that gives me problems. I use the gloves usually just at night. My trigger finger problem has been much better and the pain from my tendonitis is almost gone. I tell everyone about Tommie Copper. I never believe in wonder cures because none of them have ever worked for me ….until now. So, if you suffer from any kind of chronic pain, try this product. It is truly amazing. I feel so much better and I am so grateful that my daughter introduced me to this product. I intend to order more products for the rest of my painful body parts. I only wish they made a total body suit. LOL” – Mom Mc
Needless to say, I think my mom deserves this win and I am hoping and begging that you will help me, help her
