Christmas shopping is proving difficult, tiring and causing extra unmanageable pain in an already overburdened body. Shopping online is an option but I think I have left that too late to receive the gifts in time. Next year I will have to start planning and purchasing much earlier. How are you managing?
Ideas to get organised, if you are interested can be found at:

- make sure I do not run out of medications over the holiday season when pharmacies may be closed on certain days.
- allow extra time to get ready for everything
- make sure I still get daily rest and relaxation
- try and keep normal routines of taking tablets and looking after myself
Do you have any other suggestions?
