mcsaware

THIS PAST WEEK– I HAD THE CAP COME OFF THAT FRONT TOOTH AGAIN— & SO WE CALLED MY DENTIST OFFICE– & MY DENTIST WAS OUT OF THE OFFICE — BUT ANOTHER DENTIST COULD SEE ME— SINCE I HAD TAKEN THE OFFICE LOTS OF INFORMATION ON MCS– IN A FILE FOLDER– BEFORE– & I WAS ASSURED I WOULD HAVE A SAFE VISIT– EVEN IF MY DENTIST WAS NOT IN THE OFFICE– OFF WE WENT THE 2 HOUR DRIVE TO THE DENTIST OFFICE—–

FIRST THING THE DENTIST ASSISTANT OPENS THE DOOR & SAYS:

“S-O-N-D-R-A”!    “S-O-N-D-R-A”!   “S-O-N-D-R-A”!  “S-O-N-D-R-A”!

NOW I LOOK ALL AROUND– AND NO ONE GETS UP—- SO SHE MUST MEAN ME!!!!! BUT I WOULD RATHER BE CALLED FAT ASS THEN “S-O-N-D-R-A”!

AS MY NAME IS : “S-O-N-D-A”!  AND 90% OF MY LIFE I ANSWERED TO ANYTHING CLOSE TO THAT— IN MY OLD AGE– I NO LONGER DO—– MY NAME IS : “S-O-N-D-A”! IF YOU WANT TO TO RESPOND– GET IT CORRECT!!!

THEN— SHE HAS NEVER EVER HEARD OF MCS—— AND I GOT THE ROLLED EYES– & THAT TONE OF VOICE!!!!!!!!!!

GIRLS— WE HAVE GOT TO KEEP SHARING THE WORD ABOUT MCS— AS THERE ARE WAY TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY UNEDUCATED PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO HAVE NO CLUE & JUST DON’T GET IT!!!!!!!!!!

SOME TIMES I JUST WANT TO BEAT MY HEAD AGAINST A WALL——- AND YOU KNOW THOSE PEOPLE WHO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO USE MORE SCENTED TOXIC CRAP— BECAUSE THEY ONLY UNDERSTAND ENOUGH ABOUT MCS– TO KNOW– IF THEY USE ENOUGH –THEY CAN MAKE YOU VERY VERY VERY ILL— OR KILL YOU— BUT DON’T UNDERSTAND ENOUGH ABOUT MCS  TO KNOW THEY ARE ALSO KILLING THEM SELVES– AS THEY ARE USING POISON!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!! NOT ONLY ARE YOU- HURTING ME– BUT YOUR SELF– & EVERY LIVING THING —  YOU ARE USING POISON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HELLO——-  DUH————–

THANK YOU COLLEEN FOR ALL YOU DO— & THANKS FOR SHARING THE WORD ABOUT MCS– IN SUCH GREAT WAYS—- HAPPY MCS AWARENESS MONTH TO YOU MY MCS SISTER & TO ALL OF OUR MCS SISTERS ALL OVER THE WORLD!!! MUCH LOVE TO EACH OF YOU!!!!

Life in the City with a Future

This week’s nature walk is a little different. If you are new to the site, I have MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) as do many of my followers. May is the month set aside to bring awareness to this issue. I do this Sunday post to bring peace into others’ lives. Speaking about toxic chemicals and a debilitating illnesses may seem contrary to that notion. But I believe ignoring an issue brings a whole lot of strife — not peace. So this week as I share my photos I will share with you some of what it is like to do nature photography if you are disabled with MCS, with the hopes that you will take the necessary actions in your life to never have to know what it is like to do so.

Oh, the {Worry Filled} Places You’ll Go — Two Chicks and a Girl

So, with nothing more than my worrisome nature and my motherly instincts, I sprung into action. But, only after an acceptable amount of pacing and fretting and trying to figure out what the hell was going on with this poor little chick {yes, I now know it’s called “pasty butt” and, yes, there will be an educational video (courtesy of YouTube) at the end so that you, too, can know what to do}.

Earth Appreciation Day 2016

AMEN COLLEEN———- PREACH IT SISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Life in the City with a Future

blooming tree Lake NeatahwantaI was part of the very first Earth Day. It was the best school day EVER. We made posters and picked up litter at the park and planted a tree. It can certainly seem disheartening to look at all the decades gone and how in some ways the climate and the environment seem so much worse. The lake where we picked up the litter has been closed to swimming for decades. Seriously, I am disabled with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) from the high levels of toxicity in the world. As you read this you probably had a shift — maybe a subtle one — but a shift from smiling for the happy little girl to the utter hopelessness of the enormity of the pollution in the world.

FRI APRIL 8, ’16 Guest Blog: Stephanie Snajd

FRI APRIL 8, ’16

MOST ALL OF YOU KNOW OUR MCS SISTER STEPH— & STEPH SHARED WITH ME IN AN E-MAIL— & I WANTED TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU!!!!

THANKS STEPH—- MISS YOUR BLOG—- BUT LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU— THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!!  LOVE YA– STEPH!!!!

Guest Blog:
Stephanie Snajd

I had a kidney stone. I put off going to the hospital hoping it would pass. After many hours and realizing the stone wasn’t moving and I was getting dehydrated, I decided I better go to the hospital in spite of knowing I would also have to deal with reactions due to my chemical sensitivity.  I was in the emergency room and observation unit for about 18 hours.

After my visit, I wrote a letter to the hospital.

Dear *** (Hospital Administrator):

Last week I was a patient at  ***** Hospital. I really appreciated the care I received. I especially appreciated the nurses that accommodated my chemical sensitivity.

I am surprised that ***Hospital doesn’t have a fragrance free policy for their staff. It is well-known that the chemicals emitted from fragrances make many people sick (migraines, respiratory reactions, etc.) and yet many of the staff were highly fragranced. Your goal as a hospital is to heal people, not aggravate health problems with unnecessary chemicals.

I was fortunate and was able to communicate my need for accommodation for my chemical sensitivity, but what about the patient who can’t communicate that need and is made sicker every time a fragranced staff member steps into their room?

Most of my nurses were fragrance free and did what they could to protect me. BUT there are a lot of other staff that patients have contact with besides nurses. Doctors, PAs, CNPs, CNAs. Staff in testing departments such as radiology, phlebotomy, etc.  Clerical, medical records, financial staff. Staff who stock linens, housekeeping, engineering.

The chemicals from a fragranced person walking into a room lingers and can cause a reaction in a chemically sensitive person. Linens can pick up the chemicals as well and continue to affect the chemically sensitive person. The hallways are not a safe place for a chemically sensitive person because of the fragrance chemicals.

*** Hospital is a great facility. Please make it healthier for your patients (and staff) by instituting a fragrance free policy.

Thank you

I know the request in my letter wouldn’t make a hospital totally safe for a chemically sensitive person but it is something that would help and something doable for a business.

The hospital replied:
When I send letters, I don’t expect a response but I was surprised to receive a telephone call after I sent this letter. It came from the doctor in charge of complaints. She wanted to know the specific staff members that were a problem for me. That gave me the opportunity to give her a brief explanation that I became chemically sensitive after a chemical exposure and since that time the chemicals in fragrance make me sick. I also reminded her that many people are made sick by the chemicals in fragrance. I informed her that those fragrances include petroleum chemicals and hormone disrupters.

Although my conversation with the doctor was brief, among other things, she understood by the end of the conversation that it was not a staff member, it was any staff member wearing fragrance who were the problem for me and many other patients/people who are made sick by the chemicals in fragrance.

She told me my letter would go to the grievance committee.

Was writing my letter worth it?
Yes. Multiple people have seen my letter and are aware of my concern and request.

Who has seen/will see my letter?
The administrator and his assistant, the doctor who called me and her assistant, members of the grievance committee and clerical staff associated with the committee. And what about those people who say something (even in sarcasm) to others about my request for a fragrance free staff.  Awareness starts conversations and can result in changes.

Will the hospital implement a fragrance free policy for their staff?
Realistically, I doubt my letter will make that happen, at least not soon.

Do I think my letter will make a difference?
Yes. I will never know but maybe just one person who sees or hears about my letter will pay attention. Maybe they personally will stop using fragrance. Maybe their family will benefit from reduced chemicals in their home. Maybe a doctor on the committee will implement a fragrance free policy in their private medical practice. And maybe they personally will encourage the hospital to implement a fragrance free policy.

Maybe my letter won’t change the policy in that hospital but, if no one asks, the policy will never change.
