Holiday Time 20′ 8-Function LED Edison-style

Immediately, I was drawn to the style of light. Very classic looking. When I first opened, I noticed how light they were and plastic. But that is by design and I love it! Unable to be shattered, cool to the touch. Roll through the modes and pick your favorite. We liked the plain white, atleast for now (before Christmas). I also love the little holes in the fixture, for easy hanging. They really thought of everything.

Chronic Pain Wish List 2021

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases #CommissionsEarned

Last year, I made a list for those of us that live with Chronic Pain. Click picture below to view that list, complete with links.

I wanted to create that list again this year, with any newer products that I have found over the past year. And there may be a few of the same products from last year, if they are still my favorites.

We spend a lot of time in bed and dealing with whatever flare or problem we are having that day. Many of these products I own and would recommend to anyone needing a little bit of relief. I have links to direct products or to a broader search. I hope or your loved ones are able to find an item or two that will help you make it through your day, just a little easier.

Every night, I wrap myself in the heating pad wrap. And then pull on the foot and leg massager. When I have those deep muscle problems, I pull out the massage gun or the Body Back Buddy to address that specific pain.

Teas are supposed to be good. I don’t drink it as much as I should, but I am hoping this winter I will try a lot more variety when it comes to my hot beverages.

So here is the 2021 Chronic Pain Wish List:

Muscle Massage Gun Deep Tissue for Athletes, Portable Body Neck Back Muscle Massager for Pain Relief with 8 Massage Heads 30 Speed – $39.99

This is one of my newer purchases. I got a killer deal on it and snagged one for $15. I pulled a muscle in my booty the other day, I used this and it really helped relieve the tension knot that had built up. Usually a pain like this will last for many days, maybe a week. After using this, the knot was gone in 2 days. BIG FAN!

Cure Choice XL Electric Heating Pad for Back Pain Relief, Ultra Soft 24″x33″ Heating pad for Muscle Cramps – $39.95 (3 Colors)

I use this multiple times a day: back, neck, arms, legs. My mom has one as well and is enjoying it.

2021 Apple 11-inch iPad Pro (Wi‑Fi, 128GB) – Silver – $749.00

There is a lot of resting, when it comes to chronic pain. An ipad is handy to have: log medication, record daily pain, watch a movie… you know what ipads are for. (Bigger than a phone, smaller than a laptop. Easier to carry around)

Bluetooth Sleep Eye Mask Headphones, TOPLANET Sleeping Headphones with Timer Wireless 3D Sleep Mask, Music Play Sleeping Headphones with Built-in HD Speaker – $19.79 (2 Colors)

Sleep can often be disturbed, this will help block out the light. Also, play any playlist through the Bluetooth speakers (around the ears).

Comfier Cordless Foot and Leg Massager with Heat – Rechargeable Compress Massager Foot and Calf Massager with Multiple Settings – $49.96

I won this from the Comfier Facebook page, a while ago. I use it every day. It really helps my legs and feet destress from the day.

Body Back Buddy Classic – Trigger Point Massage Tool, Neck and Back Massager Handheld, Manual Self Massager – $29.95 (3 Colors)

I’ve had this for years. It can really get into a spot that needs a lot of attention. Apply as much or as little pressure as you need.

Elitehood Ice Cold Pack Reusable Ice Bags Hot Water Bag for Injuries, Hot & Cold Therapy and Pain Relief with Elastic Breathable Support Wrap, 4-Pack – $15.99

Variety Tea Gift Set- Tea Lovers Gift Basket Includes 18 Tea Flavors, Double Insulated Cup, Stroopwafels, Honey Jar and Dipper – $31.88

Heat Holders – Hats, Gloves, Scarves

Circulation can be frustrating. Our hands and feet can be cold, constantly.

This is my too tired to function tshirt – $19.94 (5 Colors)

I have this shirt in 3 colors. My husband bought these for me, so I could wear this when I’m having a bad pain day and don’t want to have to explain anything… to anyone.

Other suggestions:

We spend a lot of time in bed. We need to be as comfy as we can and not have to move around too much. Sometimes, we just need to curl up in bed with a nice, soft blanket… cuddle up with some pillows and watch TV. Here are a few more suggestions for those “Bed Rest” days.
