WELCOME TO THIS VERY SPECIAL STOP ALONG THE BLOCK PARTY TOUR!

Well, we’re not really keeping her alive, but we are keeping her memory alive, and if you really think about it, you’ll come to realize that they are both the very same thing.

When I started RRBC, there were a handful of people that I wanted by my side as I took this journey…Kathryn C. Treat was one of those people. She served in the capacity of our first Membership Director but what she did, went far above and beyond the duties…

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!!!

    Thanks for sharing Sonda. I was working on my blog the last few days and there was Kathryn’s links. I miss that girl for sure. But I KNOW she is looking out for us. Once an MCS Sister always an MCS sister. I know she is keeping a spot open in heaven for us filled with lots of fresh air.

    • SO MANY TIMES WHEN I AM WRITING A BLOG POST NOW—- SO MANY TIMES I CAN JUST HEAR KATHRYN SAYING— OH— HONEY ARE YA SURE YA WANT TO SAY THAT???? 🙂
      THE LAST TIME KATHRYN CALLED— I WAS SICK & DIDN’T PICK UP THE PHONE— I HAD TALKED TO HER THE DAY BEFORE– & SHE KNEW I WAS SICK & WAS CALLING TO CHECK ON ME– & I MISSED HER LAST CALL!!!!!!!!!!!! I CRIED & CRIED ABOUT THAT—- I MISS HER SO MUCH—- SHE E-MAILED OR CALLED OR CONTACTED ME– ALMOST EVERY DAY— SHE IS SAVING US A PLACE IN HEAVEN FOR SURE— I THINK SOMETIMES SHE WONDERED IF I WOULD MAKE IT THERE— SHE KNEW MY GUARDIAN ANGEL GOT A WORK OUT!!!
      I MISS HER SHARING & JUST EVERY DAY HAPPINESS!!!! SHE LOVED HER GRAND BABIES– & LOVED TAKING CARE OF THEM!!!
      SHE HAD SHARED WITH ME— ABOUT THE BLOOD THINNER SHE WAS TAKING– & HOW SHE WAS WORRIED ABOUT IT——– SOMETIMES I THINK — I SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE– WHEN SHE SHARED– WITH ME— HELPED HER MORE– WHAT EVER—- HER DEATH— I DIDN’T TAKE WELL— BECAUSE SHE HAD SHARED WITH ME ABOUT HER CONCERNS ABOUT THE BLOOD THINNER SHE WAS ON— & SHE FELT SHE NEEDED MORE INFORMATION— ETC– ETC— AND THEN– I MISSED HER LAST PHONE CALL!!!!!!!!
      SHE HAD CLASS– & SHE HAD A WAY– OF BEING ABLE TO ALWAYS SAY THE RIGHT THING—- SHE HAD THE BEST LAUGH!!!! MISS HER SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!

        I too have wondered should I have said something. When she said she was on that medication I did not have a good feeling about it. I don’t know how all the puzzle pieces of this Universe fit together. Maybe it was her way to die as she had lived. Educating people. What I do know for certain is that she is now free of pain and suffering and continues to try to lift us up as she always has. She would want us to relive the moments of happiness. I don’t believe you missed her “last” call. This conversation we are having is a three-way call — she is most definitely a part of it.

      • SO TRUE– SIS—- I WANT ANYONE WHO IS THINKING OF TAKING BLOOD THINNER—- TO KNOW ALL THE SIDE EFFECTS—— YOU KNOW ME & MY MOUTH—- WE DON’T TAKE ANY CHEMICAL DRUGS AT ALL OF ANY KIND—- & I HATE CHEMICAL DRUGS— & WHAT THEY DO TO PEOPLE—- & ALL THE SIDE EFFECTS—- AND I FEEL— KATHRYN’S CARE GIVERS LET HER DOWN——- I THINK EVERYONE WHO KNEW KATHRYN– WAS NOT READY TO LET HER GO—- ANOTHER THING I HAVE NEVER SAID TO ANY ONE IS—- I PROMOTED KATHRYN’S BOOK MANY MANY TIMES ON MY BLOG– & FB & OTHER WAYS—– BUT KATHRYN— KNEW I HAD NOT READ IT—- MY HEALTH WAS NOT GOOD– & I KNEW HOW REALLY REALLY HARD IT WAS FOR HER TO WRITE IT– & WHEN SHE WAS REREADING IT OVER & OVER FOR MISTAKES BEFORE IT WAS PUBLISHED– WE CRIED A LOT OF TEARS TOGETHER– JUST FROM HER RELIVING THE BAD TIMES ALL OVER AGAIN—– I LOVED KATHRYN SOOO MUCH I KNEW WHEN I WAS SICK I COULD NOT READ WHAT ALL SHE HAD BEEN THROUGH— I KNEW I JUST COULD NOT GO THERE— AND I STILL HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK—- SHE SHARED SO MUCH ABOUT IT WHEN WE TALKED & SHE WAS EDITING IT—- I KNOW A LOT ABOUT IT—- BUT AM STILL NOT SURE I CAN GO THERE– & ALL THE PAIN SHE WENT THROUGH!!! KATHRYN KNEW I HAD NOT READ HER BOOK—- & KNEW WHY— MAYBE SOME DAY— I MIGHT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO READ IT— OR I MAY NOT—- SHE WAS SO GREAT TO SO MANY PEOPLE— WE ARE BLESSED TO BE HER SPECIAL SISTERS!!!

        Ditto. I won her book and to be truthful I do not remember entering a contest on her blog to win it but I did. I sat down to read it. Although I know her story, reliving her pain was also reliving mine. I have not been strong enough. I have tried a number of times to write my own story. I can get through the telling of what the chemicals did to my body but I still have forgiveness work to do concerning the people who treated my suffering as a nuisance. I do have extreme gratitude to you and Kathryn and Steph and Linda and Debbie and Michellina … so many others for lifting me up out of a place of self-pity and victimhood to much more loving place. Empathy and compassion are powerful healers.

      • WHEN I WROTE THE BLOG POST ABOUT MY DARKEST HOLE WITH MCS—- I CRIED– & CRIED— THERE IS NO WAY I COULD WRITE A BOOK!!!! 🙂 I CAN SOMEWHAT UNDERSTAND BUT NOT REALLY KNOW THE HARD WORK IT TAKES TO WRITE A BOOK—-LET ALONE RELIVING THE EXPERIENCES LIKE KATHRYN WROTE ABOUT— I USE TO WRITE ARTICLES FOR LOCAL NEWSPAPERS & PUBLISHED TWO SMALL LOCAL NEWSPAPERS— A BOOK— OH HELL– NO– I DON’T HAVE WHAT THAT TAKES!!!! SEVERAL FOLLOWERS OF THIS BLOG ARE FRIENDS NOW THROUGH KATHRYN & THE WRITERS & AUTHORS — SHE KNEW— AND NOW ARE FRIENDS OF MINE– THANKS TO KATHRYN!!!!

      • OH— REMEMBER THE APRON I WON THAT KATHRYN MADE & SENT TO ME— THAT — I THINK I MUST HAVE ENTERED SOME CONTEST SHE HAD— BUT SHE SAID– I WAS GOING TO GET ONE OF HER HAND MADE APRONS ANY WAY!!!! 🙂 WHAT A HOOT—–

      • Colleen says:

        I’ve written a few books. A commitment for sure. Memoirs are the toughest I think — all that truth and honesty — no escaping into fantasy. BUT it can be a good thing to dig out all of those darkest moments and get rid of them for good. Thanks for being such a great friend. 😀

      • THANKS FOR BEING GOOD FRIEND & SISTER— LOVE YA!!!!
