If you had a chronic illness and had found a product that was helping you with some of your symptoms and was making you feel better and improving your quality of life would you want to share it? Would you want to shout it from the rooftop for your fellow sufferers? Would you want to tell everyone you know about it and encourage them to try it as well? That’s the position I am in. I understand the apprehension of others to believe such a product exists. Each of us who suffers with a chronic illness of any kind is very wary about the snake oil salesmen out there who are willing to do whatever it takes to make a dollar. Because we are always searching and desiring something that will help us feel better we come across as easy prey to people like this. I understand the apprehension of something new. I understand the cautious attitude that comes along with being open prey. I’ve been there. I’ve been the victim of such snake oil salesmen. I’ve been desperate enough to fall for some of these predators. I’ve wasted money on products that were supposed to “cure” me.
All of that puts me in an awkward position because I know what all of us who are ill are thinking when we hear the words “I’ve found something that helps me”. When my girlfriend sent me a package in the mail with a letter about this great new product I admit that I was skeptical. My first thought was “yeah right”. I shoved it aside and added it to the category of yet another fake claim. I wasn’t gonna fall for that again. However two things tripped me up this time. Number one it was from a close and personal friend who I have known my entire life. I knew that she was not a snake oil salesman. Number two the ingredients in the products were things I could pronounce and had heard of before. I put the packets aside for a few days and gave all of that some thought. During that period of time I also did some research online. I decided to give the products a shot. I had 3 packets with instructions to use one each day. After the second day I could tell a slight difference. I noticed that I was feeling a bit less fatigued after drinking it. I looked forward to trying the third one. I could really notice a marked difference in the before and after. After those three packets were gone I paid attention to how I felt in the days following – when I didn’t have them to drink. I noticed each day I seemed to be slipping a little more back to my old self. I talked with Ron and told him about how I felt before and after the Spark. I talked to my friend who sent them to me, Tina. I asked her more about her experience with the product line, AdvoCare. I know her well and knew that she has suffered with migraines for years. I was curious what she would have to say about her headaches. If you know me then you know that headaches are something that I am very familiar with. When she told me that she had not had a migraine in 3 months I was especially intrigued. If this had been a stranger I probably wouldn’t have believed them. But because we have a history I believed her. I have no reason not to. And at this point I had experienced the difference myself.
I am on Twitter 24/7. Most of my friends on Twitter are fellow Spoonies, like me. I began thinking about what a tremendous gift this product and complete product line could be. If anyone knows me personally I hope that they know that I want nothing more than to help others. I believe the purpose behind the struggles in my life, including my Fibromyalgia, is to help and minister to others in similar situations as me. I knew if this was available to my friends their quality of life could be improved as well. I talked to Ron and we decided that helping others is what God has called me to do through my illness. We decided that I could be do that by sharing my experience and providing the opportunity with fellow spoonies around me that I come in contact each day. So I have now been an AdvoCare Distributor for the last 2 weeks. I have been sending out samples of Spark to those I know could benefit. My heart is soft toward all of those in my plight. I want to shout it from the rooftops that I have something that can help. I want to tell everyone about it. I am not a snake oil salesman. This is not a means to make money. The money is truly the last thing on my list. I only want to help my friends to feel better. It’s that simple. The product line is endless. There is something for everything. Spark has lit a spark in me. It has given me energy back. I call it a glass of energy. The last year has been a hard year for me because of my Fibro fatigue. But the Spark has truly gotten me moving again. I am not 100% better. My Fibromyalgia has not been cured. I am not pain free every day. I could not go out tomorrow and run a marathon. But I feel better. If you suffer from a chronic illness then you know any degree of feeling better is a victory.
I want to help you. If you have not already received a sample packet from me please let me know. I would be glad to send you one. And each person who places an order on my AdvoCare site in the month of June will receive a gift from me. I will send you an Advocare Blender Bottle free. Advocare is a product I believe in and all I want to do is share it with you. If you look in the left sidebar of my blog you will see the Advocare logo. Under the logo it says the words Health, Hope and a Future. That’s what it is providing for me. And it’s what I want to share with you. You can click on that logo at any time and it will take you directly to my Advocare site where you can place an order.
