Adding to that, I periodically have outbreaks of allergy-related eczema. The eczema isn’t continuous (thank god) and I have periods of dormancy. Then an outbreak will occur and I go through months to years of itchy itch.
This December everything came to a head. I reached a point of almost continual itch to the point of severe distraction. And I became tired of my constantly watering eyes and sore eyelids from the weeping. Not to mention my close attachment to a box of Kleenex.
However, I didn’t want to have to resort to a pile of drugs to help myself, for either my allergy or eczema. First, I prefer to take minimal drugs and second, they’re way to expensive.
So I resolved to find more natural methods to improve my health. I’m not a doctor but I am a hell on wheels researcher.
One thing lead to another and I started on a journey that moved wider and deeper into going green than I expected. I’d like to tell you I have altruistic reasons for taking the green steps I’ve been doing but my motivations are all personal. I want relief, dammit, and to be healthier and more energetic. And, oh yeah, also because while other women are willing to age gracefully but I’m going kicking and screaming.
I’m just at the beginning of my green journey but decided, what the hell, I’ll chronicle my actions and results in Big Cat Chronicle, my personal blog. In articles to follow….however many I’m inspired to write….I’ll share what I’ve tried and what worked for me.
Feedback and tips are most welcome. Like I said, I’m not an expert and want to learn from others too.
