THERE SEEMS TO BE SOMEONE INTERESTED IN BUYING OUR BURNS, KS HOUSE– SO THAT WOULD BE AWESOME IF THAT WORKED OUT.
I DELETED ALL THE HUNDREDS OF E-MAILS– SO IF YOU E-MAILED ME SOMETHING IMPORTANT PLEASE TRY AGAIN— THERE WERE WAY TOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY TO READ & ANSWER AT THIS TIME!!!
WE ARE SO BLESSED TO HAVE A LAND LINE & INTERNET AGAIN– AS THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN THIS HOUSE WE BOUGHT & THEY MOVED OUT– DID NOT DISCONNECT THEIR SERVICE– AND WE COULD NOT GET SERVICE IF THEY STILL HAD SERVICE IN THEIR NAME AT THIS ADDRESS– WE WERE TOLD IT COULD TAKE UP TO SIX MONTHS BEFORE WE COULD GET SERVICE– BUT LONG–LONG–LONG–LONG STORY SHORT — IT IS NOT WHAT YA KNOW– BUT WHO YA KNOW & THEY GOT US SERVICE– WE HAD PLANNED ON USING OUR CELL PHONES HERE BECAUSE THEY DO WORK HERE & IN BURNS, KS OUR CELL PHONES DID NOT WORK– NOT A TOWER CLOSE ENOUGH– FOR SERVICE– BUT USING THE CELL PHONE GAVE ME TERRIBLE HEADACHES– SO GARY ALSO ORDERED A LAND LINE AGAIN!!! MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS THE SAME– CELL # IS THE SAME– & IF YOU NEED MY LAND LINE– LET ME KNOW. INTERNET IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH FASTER & THE COST OF INTERNET & A LAND LINE IS LESS THEN THE SLOW INTERNET WE HAD IN BURNS, KS.
OK– MOST OF YOU KNOW THAT WE LOOKED AT THIS HOUSE WHEN FOR SALE-& IT WAS TOXIC CHEMICAL FREE– IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WE WERE BUYING IT– TO SIZE DOWN & HAVE AN MCS SAFE HOME– TOXIC CHEMICAL FREE—- WELL LONG LONG LONG STORY SHORTER– AFTER WE HAD A GOOD CONTRACT ON THE HOUSE-& NO ONE WAS LIVING IN IT— IT WAS SPRAYED WITH TOXIC KILLING FABREZE— AND I DO MEAN ALL OVER– CARPETS– INSIDE CABINETS & CLOSETS– & MEDICINE CABINETS– ALL OVER— TO SAY THIS WAS A TOTAL COMPLETE DISASTER WOULD BE THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR———- IT HAS COST US TIME & MONEY & MAINLY OUR HEALTH!!!!
I HAVE HAD SO MANY ASK WHAT DID YOU DO TO REMOVE ENOUGH OF THE TOXIC KILLING FABREZE TO MOVE IN—– WELL YOU NAME ANYTHING NATURAL & WE HAVE USED IT & STILL USING IT—- AND WILL PROBABLY ALWAYS HAVE TO USE IT!!! WE STARTED OUT WITH WHITE VINEGAR & APPLE CIDER VINEGAR– & HYDROGEN PEROXIDE & GARY PUT DOWN OVER 15 POUNDS OF BAKING SODA ON THE CARPETS– WE USED VODKA– AND AIR PURIFIERS & FANS WITH FILTERS– & WE USED SMALL OZONE MACHINES– AND THEN WE ORDERED A COMMERCIAL OZONE MACHINE– AT THE COST OF $1,000.00 AND THEN WE USED OPEN WINDOWS & WINDOW FANS– AND MORE ACV & COFFEE GROUNDS & WE USED CHARCOAL & MORE VODKA– GARY WENT TO THE LIQUOR STORE IN STRONG CITY, KS.

ANY ONE WITH MCS– KNOWS THOSE CHALLENGES!!!!
WHAT DID WE DO TO THE PERSON WHO SPRAYED OUR HOUSE WITH FABREZE– WELL THE OLD ME WOULD HAVE ROPED & DRUG HER & BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF HER– AS USING POISON FABREZE ALL THROUGH A HOUSE IS LIKE PUTTING A GUN TO SOMEONE’S HEAD– AND USING FABREZE IN A HOUSE THAT SOMEONE IS BUYING BECAUSE IT HAS NO TOXIC CHEMICALS IS LIKE PULLING THE TRIGGER OF THE GUN & NOT TOTALLY KILLING THEM!!! WELL THROUGH LOTS OF PRAYERS—– I HAVE FORGIVEN THE BITCH– (WELL STILL WORKING ON THAT FOR TOTAL FORGIVENESS) — NOT FOR HER BUT FOR ME— & GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF HER– AND I ALSO BELIEVE IN KARMA—— SHE WILL GET HERS!!!!!!

OK– I NEVER DO A BLOG POST WITH OUT SHARING INFORMATION ABOUT MCS– SO HERE WE GO—
WHAT IS MCS??
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) is a medical condition characterized by debilitating chemical sensitivities. People who are chemically sensitive are made sick by exposures to chemicals found in many common products such as pesticides, perfumes, tobacco smoke, new carpets, air “fresheners,” new paint and building materials, and many cleaning and laundry products. Most of these chemicals will make everyone sick at high levels, but for chemically sensitive people exposures to even small amounts of these substances can cause symptoms. Some chemically sensitive people are only mildly affected while others have the more severe form of the illness called MCS.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF MCS????
SYMPTOMS experienced by people with MCS range from mild to life-threatening and include headache, trouble concentrating, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, muscle and joint pain,dizziness, difficulty breathing, irregular heart beat, and seizures and more. MCS symptoms in children include red cheeks and ears, dark circles under the eyes, hyperactivity, and behavior or learning problems. After an exposure, symptoms mayoccur immediately or be delayed for up to a few days. Reactions may last from a few seconds to weeks or months. People with MCS often react to a variety of foods, drugs, molds, and pollen as well as chemicals.
What causes MCS???
Many people have developed MCS after being exposed to chemicals in a newly built home, recently remodeled office, or following a pesticide or solvent exposure. Others slowly become ill over a period of years. Creating a Healthier Environment Reducing exposures to chemicals improves the health of those with MCS. Better air quality also helps promote the health of everyone. The following are ways to create a healthier environment:
: Avoid pesticides
· Avoid newly built or remodeled buildings, or build with less toxic materials
· Avoid new paint and solvent-based stains and transparent finishes
· Avoid new carpets
· Avoid gasoline, solvent, dry-cleaning, and tar fumes
· Avoid tobacco smoke and vehicle exhaust
· Use least toxic, natural, and unscented cleaning, laundry, and sanitizing products
· Avoid perfume, cologne, and scented personal care products
· Avoid air “freshener” sprays, incense, and fragrance-emitting devices
· Use electric utilities or radiant heat
· Open windows, ventilate buildings with clean fresh air and/or use portable room air filters.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is basically a subset of Environmental Illness (EI), which is caused by living in a toxic world. The chemicals that were synthesized after World War II (including, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, cleaning products, detergents, etc.) are mostly “petro-chemicals” (petroleum based) and are quite toxic to humans. There have been virtually no studies done on the majority of these chemicals to see how they affect humans – the industry just placed the chemicals in the environment with the assumption that they are “safe, till proven toxic”, instead of the other way around. One of the biggest offenders is PERFUME and other scented products. Did you know that many of the ingredients in your perfume are the exact same ingredients found in GASOLINE??!! I didn’t either! The scary thing is that the perfume industry is NOT REGULATED at all – they can put any number of chemicals in fragrance without revealing what those chemicals are – or how they affect humans. We humans are all participating in a giant “lab experiment” against our knowledge and against our will, and it’s making some of us VERY sick.
Those of us who are becoming chronically ill from these chemicals are similar to the “canaries in the coal mine”. Coal miners would take a canary into the mines with them to warn them when the air became toxic. They knew that when the canary stopped singing or died, it was time to get out before it affected them as well. We “human canaries” are here to warn the rest of you that, unless you start making changes and avoid as many toxic chemicals as possible, you too may become very sick. Non toxic living is actually much “simpler” and cheaper!
Don’t be fooled, these chemicals are affecting ALL of us in some way or another. Think about the last time you got a headache for no apparent reason. Could it be possible that someone had recently sprayed perfume or pesticides near you without you knowing it? Had you recently used scented laundry detergent or Clorox to clean with? Do you get headaches or feel nauseous from being around people wearing perfume or cologne? Do you feel you need to hold your breath when you go down the detergent aisle at the grocery store? All these things are your body’s way of telling you something is wrong with the air you’re breathing. While an MBA in health care may help you understand the whys and wherefores of the medical issues it doesn’t take a masters degree to listen to your body and know that things are not right.
It’s like playing “Russian Roulette” – you never know how long your immune system can hold out before breaking down. Some people may never reach the point of “chronic illness” that I have – but most people are being affected, possibly without realizing it. Cancer has increased dramatically since World War II (after all the chemicals came out). Attention Deficit Disorder is on the rise (more and more of our children are being put on toxic, brain-altering drugs like Ritalin when simply cleaning up their environment could solve their problems). Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer’s Disease, Allergies, Asthma, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Multiple Sclerosis are also increasing. All these illnesses could very well have a chemical connection to their cause or, at the very least, these patients would benefit from using less-toxic products. Pretty much any “immune system” disorder could be helped by a cleaner environment and by using safer products.
The products we use on our skin are absorbed directly into the bloodstream (the reason why nitroglycerine, nicotine, and hormone patches work). The chemicals we breathe (such as perfumes, formaldehyde, pesticides, etc.) all go straight to our brains and can cause low-level to severe damage – similar to how someone can snort cocaine or glue to get a “high”. Start reading labels – check for petro-chemicals, formaldehyde, and fragrance, and avoid them as much as possible. A clue that an ingredient may be a petro-chemical is the “prop” prefix. A clue that an ingredient releases formaldehyde is “Quaternium”. Be careful about products labeled “fragrance free” or “unscented”. Don’t trust them! Read the label and be sure they don’t list “fragrance” or “masking fragrance”. Don’t put anything on your skin you’d be afraid to eat, because the end result is the same!
Before I got sick, I had no clue that I was slowly being “poisoned” by products that I assumed were “safe” since they were on the market! If this could happen to me – YOU COULD BE NEXT – and most who have health problems- have not tied their health problems to the toxic chemicals they are exposed to everyday—that they breathe–eat & drink & use!!
When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!!
ALSO IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE BRAND- OR THE PRICE YOU PAID– ALL PERFUME & FRAGRANCES ARE ALL TOXIC!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE KILLERS—–
