Counting My Spoons: The importance of support groups

Chronic illness can be a lonely journey. Even if family and friends do their best to support you, the truth is no one “gets it” until they get it! That’s why linking up with your fellow chronic illness warriors is so important! In this article, my fibro friend Julie covers the pros and cons of support groups, and includes a list of online support groups for various illnesses. I was happy she included my What Works for Fibromyalgia Facebook group.

Free magnesium spray…

Soothe Magnesium is offering a free bottle of their top-rated magnesium spray – just pay shipping! I’m a huge fan of supplementing with magnesium. I’ve found it helpful for reducing overall soreness, calming restless legs and improving sleep. I take an oral magnesium supplement, but I also use it topically because I’ve read it’s best absorbed through the skin. Soothe Magnesium’s offer is an easy way to try topical magnesium at a low cost. Get your free bottle here, or click on the image below.

  1. I too purchased the magnesium sample but did not elect to buy the larger bottle even though they tried to upsell me. I noticed this weekend that I was charged for a new bottle and sent them a message to remove the charge because I did not sign up for a trial. Their advertisement as well as the form that was completed by me indicated it was not a trial and that there will be no monthly Billings. The response from Amanda was that I failed to read what I signed up for. She failed to take into account that I keep a copy of everything that I do. Very easy to make a PDF and save it to a file on the computer. I agree I do not do business with these types of people and since I never requested it I have no need to return the bottle when it arrives and surely would not return the bottle if I had to pay for the shipping.

      Thank you for letting me know. Their last offer was not supposed to include any type of subscription.

  2. Re: Soothe magnesium spray. There was another ‘free’ promotion & I ordered a ‘free’ sample & continued to receive bottles charged to my credit card for months because I had to pay for shipping & handling through my credit card. So beware. I love your site & newsletter. Thank you soooooooooo much!

      I had a similar experience. I ordered the free sample plus the upsell larger bottle. Was surprised when I received an additional bottle the next month that I hadn’t ordered. I emailed them and found that I had been put on an autoshipping program. I liked the product, but I didn’t sign up for it and won’t deal with companies who do this. They were good about cancelling it, but watch the fine print in the form and see if there is a box or something that you check or don’t check to avoid this. The return shipping cost is about $8-9 dollars for the full size bottle.
