In Review and Update...

GREAT explanation from The Environmental Illness Resource HERE​. My MCS began while living in IL - exposure to Kerosene from a portable heater and oil from leaking heat pump in house. At that time it triggered severe allergic reactions (IgE responses, not typical of MCS). It skyrocketed when we moved to MN next to a farm (pesticides airborne, AND pesticides IN the house from previous owners having Orkin spray monthly around and inside the house). Then went to unimaginable levels when a microwave accident emitted plastic chemicals and latex throughout the home, triggering 8 solid days of recurrent anaphylaxis and over. My latex allergy had already gone bizerko in early 2007 (disabling in 2006) and the MCS was remarkably worse. In 2007, I contracted Lyme Disease (it became chronic). By the end of 2008, I could no longer attend church because of the horrible exposures of chemicals from having a large group of people in a confined building (that used TERRIBLE cleaning chemicals, and also greatly contributed to my latex allergy worsening - discovered they were using latex balloons in the main sanctuary during the week!). You can read more about what happened to me on my blog (this post details the MW event that so drastically changed my life: http://www.janiesjewelsjems.com/2009_03_01_archive.html).
 ♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
Through homeopathic remedies and nutritional therapy, I've been able to gradually get part of my life back. Although it requires extremely lengthy research and coordination, I'm able to travel again (but only by car) -- something we thought was lost forever after the 2009 event. The treatments in 2009 also eradicated my lyme disease! This last Fall, we were able to move back to Michigan and now live MUCH closer to family. And while I'm currently exposed to new construction (our 'new' house and one currently 'under' construction next door), I'm better than I was while living in MN. Our house there (and the farm next door) was slowly killing me! Here, the entire main level is carpet-free! I've also learned a whole lot more about the physiology of our bodies and been able to apply what I'm learning (currently taking classes (very slowly) to become a certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner -- which is a true miracle! it's really, REALLY hard work, but SO worth it!!). I've been able to add MANY more foods back into my diet, and as such, my immune system is gaining strength (whole foods are SO MUCH BETTER for you!). I've had an increase in sinus and/or throat infections since our move - but have been able to treat them and heal through 'all natural' means. I'll be VERY glad once the construction is over next door and those exposures no longer affect me.
 ♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
One thing I've done daily since the microwave accident, is take what I call my "detox baths". I put 1/2 to 1 cup baking soda in my bath water, along with 1/2 cup epsom salts - and do this immediately before bedtime. When there's been a major exposure, I'll double the epsom salts. Vitamin C has played a GIGANTIC role in reaching where I am today, right along with Vitamin D and other nutritional musts (some are needed in supplement form).
 ♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥ 
I've been able to find a couple supplement brands that do not use latex gloves in manufacturing their products, and most are also non-GMO. I stock several of these in inventory (have been selling Heel homeopathics since 2010 and nutritional supplements since 2013). Please feel free to email me at janieinMN (AT) comcast (DOT) net, if you have any questions regarding nutrition's role in our health. If I don't know the answer, I will do my best to direct you to someone who does. For a partial list of the products I carry, you can visit my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Janies-Jewels-Jems/165835386766094. I do not have an online store as of yet, but will accept orders via email or phone.

What kept me away from blogging?

WOW! didn't realize how long it had been since I posted, until I just did one. I 'went back to school' the Fall of 2013, in the medical profession, studying to be a "Nutrition Therapy Practitioner". Since then, there's been VERY little time for 'hobbies', so digital-scrapbooking has taken a back seat for awhile. I've done a few pages here and there, but am no longer a member of any CT (creative team). Then, in February last year, I injured my IT band (ligament-like tough fibers that run from the knee to the hip) and tensor fascia lata muscle - throwing out my right hip, SI joint and a few vertebrae and injuring the tissues & muscles between the knee and into the lower back. When a local chiropractor made a house call (again traditional medicine failed me), my right leg was 1 1/4 inches shorter than the other. It's the worst pain I've ever had to endure in my entire life. Add to that, a SEVERE allergic reaction to a new lift chair (necessary 'cuz of the injury) which sent me to ER by ambulance and into a huge nightmare! (and why the Drs protocol for me is "ER as the 'last' resort!"). Suffice it to say, the chair went and the hospital bed came into our home. After an entire month of extensive chiropractic therapy, I was able to say goodbye to the hospital bed and gradually things improved (continued chiropractic therapy up until our move in August). It's now been a FULL YEAR, and while I still have a partial numb area in my leg, the nerve pain is only intermittent and specific (daily) stretches help keep my spine in line and the hip where it's supposed to be! It's popped out a couple times in recent weeks, but was able to get it back in place with a couple stretch maneuvers.  THANK YOU to Dr Stephen Bappe of Hastings MN!!
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
The toughest part was having to deal with all that pain through only natural means. While at the hospital ER, they tried morphine through IV and that took the edge off. However, even that wasn't an option once the simultaneous benadryl no longer kept the allergic reaction to the drug in check. Add to that several trips to/from MI which culminated in an out-of-state move, and it's easy to see why I fell so far behind in 'blogging'. It was all I could do to keep up with facebook!  I'm now best friends with garlic (new level!), ginger & turmeric... and magnesium was super helpful with the horrific muscle spasms that were being triggered by the nerve injuries.
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
My nutritional certification studies were delayed due to medical leave for the IT band injury, and then even further when an extension was needed during my last class because of exposures and reactions related to the move. And now that I'm back on track with that, it's tax time! YECH!!!
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥ 
Hoping I'll be able to do more writing this year :-)

It's PLAYTIME!

It's that time of year... tax preps! Yech! I used to love dealing with numbers & finances... but since my latex allergy & multiple chemical sensitivities went bizerko, they're one of my least favorite things to do. Not sure what would happen if I didn't use QuickBooks Pro and Turbo Tax! Because of the inks & chemicals in the rects, they're problematic for me... so instead of "keeping up" with them throughout the year (like I would like to!), they pile up and then I have to do EVERYthing all at once (... can be mind-boggling & overwhelming! ...).
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥ 
Well... I have the rects in date order & grouped by month... yesterday I finished imputing the data for 3 months! (actually only 2, but I forgot June was done the previous day, so I thought it was still waiting... so, for me, that's 3!). 
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
SO, I earned some PLAYTIME!!! and what more appropriate than to use Mags' new kit, Toddler Playground (links below)... and scrap my grandsons' playtime at the park!

Whoo Loves U

I love all things hearts ... so was THRILLED when MagsGraphics designed this FUN & CHEERY valentine kit with all kinds of hearts... along with some owls (a personal reminder to pray for a dear friend of mine who loves owls!). Ended up being the perfect complement to scrap a super fun Facebook event that an old school-mate and I put together last Fall. What can I say...?... I love food too! hehe

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

EXCELLENT video explaining MCS -- HIGHLY recommend for everyone... NOW's the time to take action to prevent this from happening to you and/or anyone in your family. Chemicals are everywhere -- the toxicity is well known & scientifically proven -- yet they're still in use in everyday products. Then, in our desire to control our environment, pesitcides & more are used in our neighborhoods... county's do city-wide aerial applications (via heliocopter, truck & backpacks) for mosquito control... these don't just stay outdoors (and they DO STAY!), they get into our homes!! THIS VIDEO IS A MUST SEE!!

Remembering our 1st date!

I was delighted when Mags released her Golf Bundle (his & hers). My hubby & I are soon to celebrate our 35th anniversary. Our 1st date was miniature golf... during our 25th anniversary year, we were able to go back to the location of our 1st date... it took 3 digi-layout pages to scrap the highlights :-)

There's A Mouse In The House

♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
(my FB post this morning)
recently my PC mouse (wired) started jumping all over the screen on bootup (cursor, not mouse :-) -- it's only on bootup, but was driving me crazy... what's going on?? possible virus? mouse failure imminent? hacker? -- so looked up problem online and found TONS... but mainly for laptops & wireless mice. one forum mentioned the led lens, virus, drivers, pad surface, etc. WELL, i put on my readers and was checking to see what mouse it was (system is HP)... WHEN i noticed something sticking out of the lens/ball... i pulled it and MORE came with it!!! MY MOUSE WAS COLLECTING "KEIKO" HAIRS!!!! hahahhahahahhahhahhehehhehehehhe... SO, i pulled them all out & cleaned off the 3M precision 'latex-free' mouse pad ... and we'll see what happens tomorrow morning when i bootup ... i'll betcha the mouse will stay contentedly in its spot til "I" choose to move it ... poor thing... it was suffering INDIGESTION!! hahahahahhahahhehhehehhehehe... (giggle, snort!)...

WARNING! Vaccines & Latex Allergy

Vaccines containing latex may be triggering allergic reactions 
to common products, like baby pacifiers.
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
this is REALLY close to my heart, since i'm disabled with latex allergy. i personally KNOW the extreme dangers -- it is PROGRESSIVE (gets worse with EACH exposure) -- it can become life-threatening at ANYtime! -- and ANYone can develop it!! -- for the CDC to state go ahead and give latex-contaminated-vaccines to an infant, child (ANYone!!) as long as they haven't had an anaphylaxis reaction is LUDICROUS to the extreme!! with all the evidence & studies now available, this is literally playing russian roulette with your child... once you're anaphylaxic to latex, there's NO TURNING BACK!!! i'm now disabled because i didn't know anything ABOUT latex or latex allergy (even when i knew i was latex allergic)... back then, when nurses would ask about allergies (at a dr appt) and i'd reply latex, more often than not i'd get a 'rolled eyes' response. and NO ONE directed me to any info 'about' latex allergy until AFTER it was too late. my latex allergy went BIZERKO in Feb2007 and forever altered my life and that of my family (& friends). that in combination with my severe multiple chemical sensitivities (mcs)  made life VERY isolating... because the ONLY treatment for latex allergy is AVOIDANCE! and avoidance is the #1 treatment for mcs.
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
PLEASE! do ALL YOU CAN to protect your child against developing latex allergy -- make sure your baby supplies are latex-free (ie pacifiers, bottle nipples, clothing, etc) and don't allow ANYTHING to be injected into or fed to your child that contains latex (meds, vitamins, vaccines.. anything with natural rubber syringe, stoppers, bottle cap droppers, etc WILL contaminate the contents with latex proteins!).

Studio FUN !?!?!

It's been three years since I've been able to do "hybrid" scrap-booking (that's what digi-scrapbookers call the "hands-on" scrapping that's been going on for decades). My severe NRLA (natural rubber latex allergy) put a halt to rubberstamping and the severity of my MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) prevented me from continuing to scrap even using the latex-free materials. That's 'cuz of all the chemicals involved... from adhesives to paints to inks to papers, embellishments & more!
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
Thanks to a long road of nutritional supplements & homeopathic remedies, my immune system has gotten stronger. I still have to be extremely careful, even though I've been able to add some latex-cross-reactive foods back onto my 'ok' list... even though I've been able to resume "some" hands-on scrapping & other projects in the last 2-3 months, I still have to be extremely careful (repeat intentional). Because although most exposures come from known sources, there are still MANY surprise ones out there... including what caught me unawares a few days ago and rendered me a "couch YAM" for the last couple days (yams are "sweet" potatoes... and because regular potatoes are strong enemies of mine (HUGE latex-cross-reactive for me), I wanted to come up with a different term. My best friend, Melissa, helped me out with that... she knows how much I enjoy eating yams (raw, baked, roasted, chips, etc). Anyway, I had been sorting thru some supplies to set up to make some cards... had just completed a digi-LO for ClubScrap's PSL challenge and my blog post when I got hit... hard and fast... required 2 doses of epinephrine to stop, benadryl and several homeopathics (primarily anti-histamine, but also for gut & inflammatory pain symptoms that accompanied this particular anaphylaxis episode). I'm still not positive what caused this crash, but the couple suspicions came on top of a system that was already engaged in a defensive battle. Over the last couple of weeks I'd been exposed to: hotel fragrances, people fragrances & cigarette smoke, travel stuff (vehicle exhaust, latex-contaminated-road-dust, etc), farming chemicals several times (exhaust, insecticides, fertilizers, etc - we live right next door to a farm that has been SUPER busy this last month in their efforts to rescue & replant crops following the damaging wind/hail storm that hit our area). It's no wonder then, that the scales were tipped and I got hit so hard & fast... the final straw was either (or both!) a new olive leaf supplement (had been confirmed by manufacturer to be latex-safe) that I tried that morning and/or a malfunctioning air purifier that overheated, putting a burnt oil/rubber smell into the air. It is now in the repair shop for warranty service (problem still unknown)... and the new supplement is now on the "do not use" list!!
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
Even keeping a daily log doesn't always help identify the source of the exposure that causes a life-threatening allergic reaction. I've been keeping a daily log since 2007 (wow! that's 5 yrs!!) which has helped me identify many, many triggers. By identifying them, I'm then able to avoid them... which is the ONLY treatment for NRLA and the 1st/best treatment for MCS. It's fairly easy to identify the triggers for immediate reactions, but harder for delayed ones. I believe my system was already on overload with 'recovering' from all the recent chemical exposures and that contributed to my needing more meds to stop the anaphylaxis and longer recovery time from this episode (hence the 'couch-yam' dressed in robe & pj's!). 
 ♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
Life is always an adventure living with NRLA "and" MCS, that's for sure.
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
If you arrived at the post doing an internet search for info on latex allergy or mulitple chemical sensitivities, there are a few resource/educational links in my blog footer (you can get there quickly by pressing control-end).
 ♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
Here's my studio - this photo shows my map-fold books in progress :-)
 ♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
And here's a panoramic view - photo taken with my Sony Cybershot
I've used U-HAUL mattress bags, cut to fit, to cover my bookcases (scrap-booking supplies, photo albums, books and more) -- this blocks/minimizes exposures to any chemicals off-gassing from the various items. I either push them to the side or roll them up depending whether I'm reaching for something specific or "browsing". I also store scrap-booking & craft supplies in the metal filing & storage cabinets.
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥ 
For now, the card project is on hold ... we'll have to wait & see what next week brings. Meanwhile, getting all my other air purifiers checked out (1 at a time) to make sure whatever happened with the one the other day doesn't happen with the others (our home is "fragrance-free" and "latex-safe"... we have 4 air purifiers in our home... to keep up with carpet off-gassing, neighborhood chemicals, vehicle/lawn-mower/farm machine exhaust, ETC!).

ClubScrap PSL 2012 Summer Camp!

I've taken the plunge and am signed up for summer camp -- only it's a lot different than it was 35+ years ago. It's a scrapbooking-challenge camp over at ClubScrap. I'm in the Osprey cabin (no pressure, no deadline... if I can do the challenge, great... if not, just get to have fun doing whatever! it's great!!
♥~♥*♥~~♥*♥~♥
This is week 3 and the challenge is to use fibers... I LOVE fibers and have quite a ribbon collection (stash!). I just completed a double-DIGI-spread (see previous posts) and have my work station all setup for cranking out "several" cards... gonna make some valentines (yeah, I "know" it's July!) and some all occasion ones.  Last week the challenge was "Art Media", but I wasn't able to do anything cuz of being in recovery from weekend exposures and ongoing exposures that week from farming chemicals and a few other things that I can't remember unless I look in my daily log (and I'm not going to run upstairs to do that, so for now it'll remain a "mystery").
