What's your favourite fibro gadget?


The fibro and arthritis in my hands makes styling my hair properly with a big round brush really difficult these days. My boyfriend bought me one of those Big Hair hairstylers and I have to say it's just brilliant. It has a rotating barrel so it does all the hard work for you, I'd recommend to anyone who also struggles with holding and manoevering brushes. This got me to wondering has anyone else come across gadgets that help make life with fibro that little bit easier?

Hands down- my favourite Fibro gadget is my sleep number bed! No matter how I feel, I can change my bed to make it comfortable for me. My second favourite Fibro gadget is my home-made rice pack. My mom showed me how to make them & they are great! The heat they give off is so much more therapeutic for me than a regular heating pad. :)
