I use my VS 'Heavenly' lotion as leave in conditioner, just enough to make my palms glisten then run it through my hair focusing on the damaged areas. I had an essence oil mixture called 'Love' that I wore as perfume. A hectogon shaped end table is now my coffee table as it's small enough to not be in the way of DH's wheelchair. I use the double sided kitchen rags instead of the disposable swifter wet pads. We also had about
200 syringes filled with normal saline after my husband finished his IV antibiotics, I now use them to flush scrapes and boo-boo's for my son as well as an eye flush when I get 'eye-web' mucous. Mints, and gum with peppermint oil are used for heartburn and Vicks is used for headaches LOL Chai latte (tea with cinnamon, nutmeg, and several others, basically pumpkin pie spice, honey and vanilla) helps with congestion, sore throats, just about
everything I've thrown at it, it's helped. Might just be a sugar pill type of thing though LOL
My mother also taught me to make home made stain remover from her yrs of working in a hospital. Dawn original dish soap works best (.99$ at Dollar General), but any dish soap will work. When there's about
2 inches of dish soap left in the bottle, add two inches of peroxide then fill the rest of the way with water. The peroxide gets rid of organic stains, the dawn gets rid of oily based stains.
Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
My train of thought derailed long ago, now I take the bus, few more stops, but I eventually get there.
