Day 258 In the Pursuit of Love (IIAW Day 7 Styling with an II)

I CAN TOTALLY UNDERSTAND & RELATE TO THIS– AS AN OLD COSMETOLOGIST— I PROBABLY WOULD NOT HAVE ALL THE HEALTH PROBLEMS I HAVE WITH MCS— IF I HAD CHOSEN A DIFFERENT LINE OF WORK!!!!

whiteflowerslakeKelly owns and operates the Hairitage Hair Salon in my hometown of Fulton, NY. I asked to interview her for Invisible Illness Awareness Week for two reasons: she suffered from an Invisible Illness (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma) and two of her clients that she knows of have MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity).

Here are Kelly’s words as told to me:

wildflowersgranbytrailI was a hair stylist for twelve years before I became sick. It took a year before I was diagnosed. I went though all sorts of tests for a skin disorder and later a cough. The diagnosis of cancer was scary. It came during the time I was pregnant with my second child. My oncologist was finally able to tell me that the skin disorder is a side of effect of Hodgkins. My dermatologist needed to be educated about this.

After I became sick, I knew I had to change the chemicals I…

TERRIFIC INFORMATION——————-

greatblueheronlakenDon Miguel Ruiz’s, The Four Agreements seem so simple: Be Impeccable With Your Word, Take Nothing Personally, Make No Assumptions, and Do Your Best. When I first read these words I thought, How easy is that. Years later, I am still elevating my awareness of each of these categories to everything I do. Today, I am especially working with Make No Assumptions. Over a week ago, I sent an email to the Superintendent of the Fulton City School District (and my former boss.) I have received no reply. I requested an update on what the district has done to enforce or mandate or move forward in any way with a fragrance-free policy for our school district. As I have posted previously, the Board of Education and the Fulton Teacher’s Union agreed to implement a voluntary fragrance-free policy. From the few people I have spoken with I am told little…

Day 256 In the Pursuit of Love (IIAW A “Sister’s” Journey)

PERSON

Image17meshovelFor day 5 of Invisible Illness Awareness Week, my buddy Beth has agreed to give her perspective of what it is like having a friend disabled from MCS. In a Canadian study, in 2010, over 800,000 people were diagnosed with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) an 31% increase in 5 years. Those during the same time period with one or more of Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, and MCS were 1,415,000 (a 25% increase). This study excluded children with MCS and focused mostly on people with MCS diagnosed by a doctor. I personally went undiagnosed for decades. I avoided the triggers of perfume as much as I could. I figured there was nothing a doctor could do for me anyway and why be just another statistic. I now understand how important it is for our governments to have accurate statistics. The more people who give MCS a voice — the more likely we…

What Does Your Car’s Color Say About You?

Originally posted on Outside The Lines:

What Does Your Car’s Color Say About YouFor starters, there is a strong possibility that your favorite car color gives away your gender.

A new report from iSeeCars.com reveals that men and women prefer different color cars.

Can you believe that men are more likely to search for red, orange, black, white, green and gray cars while woman opt for silver, brown, gold, beige, blue and yellow vehicles?

Men and Women Prefer Different Color Cars

According to the search and compare car website, these trends were exposed after studying search inquiries over a 12 month timespan. The site reports “hundreds of thousands of consumers” consult iSeeCars.com for information about new and used cars, but did not include the exact number of men and women who participated in this study.

Nevertheless, the statistics are compelling. Here is the list of male preferred vehicle colors and the likeliness of men searching for these cars over women:

Day 255 In the Pursuit of Love (IIAW Sarah’s Artistry)

Originally posted on Life in the City with a Future:

Colleen

(In Sarah’s words)

I drew this piece for my friend Colleen because of a conversation we had on her blog some time ago.  She had mentioned that a friend had told her that she smelled nice and wondered what perfume she was wearing.  Colleen told her friend that she was in fact not wearing any products whatsoever.  I joked that she should bottle her smell and sell it as “Eau de Colleen”.

I almost deleted this piece and started on a different design because I thought people might be repulsed by the idea of celebrating Colleen’s natural smell.  Then I thought maybe that’s something we need to tackle.  Why might we feel disgusted by a person’s natural smell?  Is it because we’ve been trained to think that people only smell nice when they’re wearing artificial fragrance?  The perfume companies like to persuade us that beautiful people wear their products. …

I drew this piece for my blogging friend Colleen.  She’s a talented photographer with a kind heart.  She wants to visit Ireland, land of her ancestors, but she can’t because the trip could kill her.  She suffers from a condition that could creep up on any one of us.  In fact, more Americans are diagnosed with it than with diabetes.  If you want to know what it is, and how to prevent it, then you’d better check out Colleen’s blog.

I drew this piece in Manga Studio on a drawing tablet called the Cintiq Companion.  Even though it’s digital art I wanted it to look hand-drawn so I avoided using the graphics design tools like grids and rulers.  I must admit to doing plenty of cutting and pasting on the flower grid pattern, fifth up on the right, though. I really enjoyed doing this piece and I’m starting to…

Image (11)I asked my mom for the ultimate act of love this week. I asked her tell about her journey having a daughter who is disabled with MCS. Mom asked me for questions for her to answer. These are her words:

1. What did you first think when I told you I was disabled with MCS and you would have to eliminate all toxic chemicals from your life if you wanted to physically see me?

I thought, God. How do we do that — chemicals are everywhere? How bad is this going to get for my poor daughter? And of course, I thought about myself also. I have lived for so long doing everything using all kinds of awful stuff and not even paying attention until you get an awful wake up call and have to hope and pray it is not too late.

2. Two years after my disability from…
