Imagine if Santa had fibromyalgia. No seriously. Just try to imagine it. What would happen? Here’s my conservative guess: ● The presents would more than likely be late. ● He’d probably forget some of our pressies or mix them up and not even realise due to fibro fog. ● He’d miss some houses because he’d
