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!!!

  1. Everything looks great! Isn’t it wonderful to have a place to relax and heal? I’m trying to get our property cleaned up for spring, but I’m doing it all myself since my husband can’t do any of the outside work anymore. Our youngest daughter and her husband and son came last weekend and did a lot of work for us. I’m so grateful for that, but they live too far away to come often. The pollen level here has literally been off the charts, and many days I can’t even go outside. So my yard work is coming along very slowly. Maybe by August I’ll have it all done! Haha! I hope you recover from your cold and feel in tip top shape very soon!
