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!!!

    Home sounds perfect.
    I live near Amish country and we have some Amish furniture and our window installer last year was Mennonite. They are craftsmen and I’m sure your house is absolutely beautiful.
    I bet you will love living in a small community and it wouldn’t surprise me if many in that community value a chemical free life.
    I am excited for you and look forward to hearing about your new adventures in your new home 🙂

    • THANKS STEPH— I AM THINKING OF NOT HAVING INTERNET FOR A WHILE WHEN WE MOVE– AS NOT MUCH IS AVAILABLE THERE ANY WAY—& WHAT IS AVAILABLE IS VERY EXPENSIVE—– WHEN I PUT THAT IN MY ROUND ROBIN E-MAIL TO SEVERAL MCS SISTERS— THEY WERE NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT AT ALL—- BUT I WANT TO NOT SPEND SO MUCH OF MY TIME– ON THE PUTTER– & TRYING TO ANSWER HUNDREDS OF E-MAILS– & FEEL LIKE I HAVE MORE OF A LIFE– THAT IS MINE!!! IF THAT MAKES SENSE—— I LOVE HELPING OTHER PEOPLE– BUT IN THE LAST EIGHT YEARS OR SO— SOOOOOOOOO MUCH OF MY LIFE IS GIVEN BY ANSWERING E-MAILS– & TRYING TO HELP OTHERS– & DO MY BLOG– ETC– ETC— I THINK I WOULD LOVE A BREAK– FROM IT ALL—–MORE TIME WITH GARY & THE GIRLS & – MORE GARDENING– & MORE FROM SCRATCH COOKING– & CHICKENS &— YARD WORK– & FISHING–& READING– & FELLOWSHIP & WORSHIP WITH GOD– ETC-ETC– LESS COMPUTER TIME!!! 🙂 I KNOW MANY OF MY MCS SISTERS ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT AT ALL— BUT SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO DO WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR SELVES– & THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES— I DON’T PLAN ON HAVING A LAND LINE– OR TV FOR A WHILE EITHER—— 🙂

      • Stephanie says:

        You are right – do what is best for you. You have helped a lot of people. Now they can take what you have taught them and move on and teach others.

        We got smart phones the first of the year. It has hurt my brain to learn it but I am spending a lot less time on the computer. I can check emails and text with my phone. If we didn’t need internet in our house, we wouldn’t have a landline – we have DSL internet.

        Don’t feel guilty about being disconnected. As much as I enjoy blogging, it has been a nice break. I may start another blog but I will blog only (and probably not on a regular basis) and I will forget the social media stuff.

        You have new adventures. The great thing is you will be in a place where you have more opportunities to go outside your home and not be chemically clobbered. What a great thing to be able to have more interaction with nature and people.

      • THANKS STEPH—- GARY HAS NOTICED— BECAUSE OF SOOO MANY LESS TOXIC CHEMICALS– & LESS HUMIDITY— I CAN WALK IN KANSAS— HERE I FIGHT FOR AIR– SOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY TOXIC CHEMICALS OF EVERY KIND HERE– REALLY CLOSE NEIGHBORS— & HUMIDITY FROM THE LAKE– I CAN’T LEAVE MY MCS SAFE HOME– WITHOUT FIGHTING FOR CLEAN AIR— OR ANY KIND OF AIR—- IT HAS SEEMED TO GET WORSE THE LONGER WE HAVE LIVED HERE!!!! TIME FOR GROWING MORE OF OUR OWN CHEMICAL FREE FOOD– FREE RANGE CHICKEN EGGS– & CLEANER AIR—— ETC-ETC-ETC—
