You're a pip, Donna!! ( I don't know what the heck a pip is.. but I think it's a good thing!! )
Well obvisously you're still young enough to fall for that stuff.. LOL!!! My hands have been a pitiful sight for - like - everrrrrr. I was a hairdresser for 25 years, after my first year of dunking my hands in every corrosive (sp?) chemical known to man-kind they were already shot. To top it all off now I'm allergic to everything that has the slightest hint of fragrance. If you want to know what a million year old's hands would look... get a glimps of these mitts!! Not pretty!!
I'm with you... my dogs do a wonderful job on the dishes, LOL.. I've got an idea, let's start our own.. we can call it... "Dawg, Dishwashing Detergent!!"
I know what you mean, I hate the commercials for anti-aging skin care. Like we don't know the model is 17 & has never had a wrinkle to worry about except in her clothes. My other pet peeve is the commercial for Lyrica. You take this pill for Fibro & you get your life back. No wonder no one thinks we are sick. Sheesh!!!! Hugs, Denise
I have: Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, food allergies, depression, TMJ, anxiety
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren

When I do dishes, I have to wear gloves. I usually get detergent from $ store. I have a hard time w/ most soaps and lotions, Olay soap, Pantene shampoo, Summer's Eve sensitive. But for some reason, I am able to use the shower gel or lotions from Bath and Body Works. I love that store, especially when they have their great sales in Jan and July. I stock up. I still can't have the sprays, that is too intense for me, but I can do the rub on stuff. I have no stock in that store, it's just I love the product. Hope that isn't a problem.
God bless. Alice.
I 'saw' my brain float by in the fog LOL. I meant to say I can use the Olay, Pantene, and Summer's Eve w/o a problem. But I do love the stuff at B&BW! I think we should all go on a field trip to B&BW, we deserve to have something nice to wash our delicate little bodies with and to smear over our sore and aching parts.
The first time I ever tried the products was during Teacher Appreciation Week at the school were I worked. They gave us a complete 'goodie bag'. I was hooked. My DD and I like to go to the store and 'sniff' all the scents. She has ones she likes and I have some favs. We have gotten each other gift cards for the place, then of course we have a girl's day out to sniff and buy.
Another haunt of ours is Pier 1, we love to check out the candles. Haven't been there in awhile. I have a collection in my china cabinet. Sometimes when I've had a really horrible day or 10, I grab some of my fav candles and inhale deeply. I love the ones for the ocean and a few others.
I would never want to lead any one astray, Marlee, but you can go to B&BW and have all those wonderful smells and sensations come home w/ you again. The wicker basket is feeling really lonely right now. So sad.
I went to a rheumy last month and she asked if I ever took Lyrica, (I have 2x, both times not helpful) I thought she was going to suggest again. She said she was so disappointed in the results, some patients used it and it was not that great. All the patients are off it. I have had some family tell me about Lyrica, like it is THE answer. 'Did I ever hear of it?' Told how it would be just the thing. Yeah! Not.
My Rhuemy about laughed himself off the chair when I mentioned Lyrica. He has never had a patient that it has helped and the side effects are dreadful...a least according to him. I see on this forum that some do get relief and that's a blessing for those it helps. It's the same for Mirapex and RLS. He wouldn't suggest me taking that either. Fibromites are so sensitive to drugs and I guess he thinks the side effects are worse than the disease.
yeah...those women in the Lyrica commercials are a riot. I've said it before...they should stick those actors arms and legs in a beehive, then shoot the commercial.
