Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow spoonies who have MCS, MCAS, ME/CFS, Lyme, or just fragrance sensitivity!
I hope you don’t have to visit any relatives like this…
I first learned that the word “natural” is just a marketing term from Linda Sepp, who writes the amazing Seriously Sensitive to Pollution blog. Linda’s blog is the most incredible resource for all things related to chemical sensitivity. It’s amazing how much the term “natural” is misused. Other fun fact: “hypoallergenic” is also a marketing term and it’s not regulated by the FDA.
I’m still battling my tendinitis, my bursitis, and all my other -itises, but I have some more Difficult Relatives cartoons in the works for next month.
Wishing everyone a non-painful day! 💚

Hope you have a good day!
I am lucky with my friends and family.
Happy Thanksgiving! Yes, I had that candle thing happen to me. People are clueless because they are made clueless by companies with vested interest. The art of being deceitful is as far back as when we’re were primates so I don’t have a lot of hope of it changing soon lol here Thanksgiving was in October, much better for travel and not so close to xmas that families haven’t mended from their last family fight before xmas rolls around lol.
Take care, I use bandages for when I have tendonitis like symptoms. I took them around my arm, I don’t use the very tight ones that are pre made. They really help when I feel something coming or when I’m doing something that will trigger it. They’ve saved me so many times. Just starting the tip in case it could also work for you. Cheers
