There is something wrong with me. Regrettably, it goes beyond the basis of this very (health-venting, wellness-kvetching) post theme: I was born without a filter. More often than not, I have zero problem sharing the inner details of my daily living with readers and writers and mothers because, after all, that is the very concept of online journalism itself. Why blog if I can’t connect with other women? Why spill my proverbial beans if not to become closer with all of you (not in a creepy Police Don’t Stand So Close To Me kind of a way), and learn from you in return?
Perhaps one of the biggest reasons for blogging/vlogging/writing/journalism (lately, they become delightfully interchangeable) is because by sharing my current struggles and hardships with you….as scary as that may be… I am able to find support and encouragement in return. However, when potentially lamenting my physical woes on the matter of lungs and everything in between, I can’t help but ask myself: where do I draw the line? How much sharing is too much? When do I cross the barrier between helping others relate and find solace in an analogous journey, without giving up all semblance of privacy (read with Downtown Abbey pronunciation, please)?
In the words of Bob Wiley, “baby steps”. I may not be ready to divulge every sordid whiny detail of my present predicament, but I can tell you what has been helping me lately in the hopes that some of you might benefit.
* The Fix: I have been ordering items from the website Medrise.com, because they offer supplements, nebulizers and humidifiers that would benefit anyone with asthma, allergies, seasonal conundrums or generalized sickness (I sound official, right?)
* The Experiment: This month I decided to try PharmaNAC per my specialist’s brilliant rec, and wanted to document the process through a series of photos. Check out how I incorporated NAC supplement (which I take twice a day desolved in juice for taste) to my life at home, and even recent holiday travels…
New highlights, steamy bathrooms with fancy nebs, and fuzzy cats solve all problems, right?
First manicure in 5 years (best medicine!)
Books and ballet: essential!
Art and nebulizers: necessities to all travels.
Why You Should Try It: If you have any sort of congestion, respiratory or immune related issues, this is an easy, natural way of boosting your immunities and nutrients without a lot of effort. Better yet, Medrise is offering 10% off all orders over $35 for any readers who enter the code “makeovermomma” at checkout. Considering I went ahead and ordered a portable nebulizer and pill organizer (again, per doctors orders) only a week or so ago- without the code- might show why you should consider grabbing some items avec digital savings. Enjoy!
