Fibromyalgia AWARE Magazine now available in CVS Stores

As mentioned in my biographical information, one of the illnesses I suffer from is Fibromyalgia. Since this condition is shared by so many chronic illness sufferers, either as the primary illness or as a secondary one, I wanted to make you aware of a great new magazine on the subject.

The National Fibromyalgia Association has a magazine title "AWARE" which is a wonderful resource and it is now available for purchase at CVS stores nationwide. As most of us with chronic illness know, it is rare for publications on specific illnesses to be available in regular places such as pharmacies, newstands , etc. . . With CVS offering "AWARE" it changes that. This is great news because it means you can pick up a copy when you are out running errands, getting a prescription filled or whatever. It will also bring awareness of this illness to larger audience of people who are shopping for magazines at CVS. Because there are still so many people who are unaware of what Fibromyalgia is, it will serve as an educational tool for them as well!

I hope you will support the National Fibromyalgia Association and this publication by purchasing the magazine and by letting others know it is available as well.

Hi, I just checked with my local CVS in Mount Vernon oh and they do not carry it and do not know about it. Any advice?
Sincerely,
