Day 311 In the Pursuit of Love (Sometimes Life Stinks)

“If you told someone what they were doing was harming you and they refused to stop — what would you do?”—-

WHAT I HAVE CHOSEN LATELY — TO DO– IS BITE MY TONGUE & KEEP TRYING TO EDUCATE—AND STAY AS WELL AS POSSIBLE– THOSE WHO SEEM TO NOT BE ABLE TO REALLY UNDERSTAND MCS– NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TRY TO EDUCATE OR EXPLAIN– AS THEY SEEM TO THINK THEY KNOW MORE– THEN I DO ABOUT MCS– EVEN THROUGH I HAVE LIVED WITH IT IN MANY FORMS FOR ABOUT 40 PLUS YEARS NOW!!!! WHICH IS NOT USUALLY MY WAY OF DOING THINGS– USUALLY I’M ON MY SOAP BOX— 🙂 -BUT SOMETIMES TO KEEP MY HEALTH– FOR THE TIME BEING– & COPE– I BITE MY TONGUE– INSTEAD OF —& CONTINUE– WHEN I FEEL IT IS THE SAME AS BEATING MY HEAD AGAINST A BRICK WALL— & RAISE MY BLOOD PRESSURE!!!! 🙂 I HAVE ALSO OVER THE YEARS JUST MOVED ON & AVOID ALL CONTACT WITH SOME FAMILY & FRIENDS WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND– WON’T UNDERSTAND– OR WHAT EVER—AS IN THE LONG RUN IT IS KILLING ME IN MANY WAYS– IF I TRY TO CONTINUE THE RELATIONSHIP!! AT DIFFERENT TIMES– I HAVE CHOSEN MANY DIFFERENT PATHS–WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE– AND I’M NOT SURE ANY OF THEM WORKED— SOMETIMES IT IS EVEN THE PEOPLE WE LIVE WITH– WHO KNOW OUR ILLNESS WELL— WHO ARE THE ONES WHO ALSO POISON US THE MOST OFTEN!!!

I’M NOT SURE HOW TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE–REALLY AWARE— THEY ARE POISONING US—(AND THEM SELVES) THE PRODUCTS THEY USE ARE POISON– JUST THAT PLAIN & SIMPLE!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE TOXIC CHEMICALS & ARE POISON— THEY ARE KILLING US– IT ISN’T WE ARE ALLERGIC— THEY ARE KILLING US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I CAN’T SEEM TO BE ABLE TO EXPRESS THIS SO PEOPLE UNDERSTAND —– OR MAYBE THEY DON’T REALLY GIVE A SHIT!!!!!!!!! I’M NOT SURE WHICH IT IS—

BUT SOME DAYS— I’M JUST LIKE IN SHELL SHOCK— AS I TRY & TRY & TRY– & SOMETIMES FEEL I AM MAKING NO PROGRESS AT ALL OF ANY KIND—- AND WONDER WHY — WHY– WHY DO I FORCE MYSELF EVEN WHEN I AM ILL– TO POST BLOG POSTS– TO TRY TO EDUCATE & SHARE INFORMATION!!!!

DOES ANY ONE ELSE HAVE THOSE KIND OF DAYS??????? 🙂

Life in the City with a Future

woodchuckA woodchuck lives under my shed. This has been so since I built my house 12 years ago. He is mostly a good neighbor. He digs his tunnels under my compost pile and eats mostly weeds. He doesn’t bother my cats. And it is fun to watch his cute fluffiness.

wetskunkyard2Yesterday, he got a new neighbor. I wondered how the woodchuck felt about the skunk. How does a woodchuck handle it when a stinky neighbor moves in? Did he move out? Did he fight? Did he decide to tolerate the smell? Does the smell even bother him?

This is the problem with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) — we often have neighbors who “stink” up the neighborhood with toxic chemicals.

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. 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!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
