Musical interlude

A bunch of friends pulled the toxic carpet out of the house last weekend. It was very exciting to turn off the air purifiers. We left the underlay down because it is stapled in a million places and didn't seem smelly. Well, we were wrong: the underlay has now had a chance to stretch its toxic little arms into the fresh air and we will now have to take that out as well. Still no office, still no blogging to speak of. The house project continues.

Here is a lovely video that lifted my spirits. I hope it does the same for you:

Oh so close! How frustrating!

Is it time for a court date, maybe? I know it must be exhausting just thinking about the prospect, but it seems that those involved are just going to try to wear you down with inaction. I'm sorry I haven't been commenting lately, but I have been feeling very fatigued and foggy. I really give you kudos for sticking with it. I am so sorry for all you're gone through. Stability in your home environment is so important when you have a chronic condition. This has gone on far too long. The companies involved should be ashamed.

I really enjoyed the video. Thanks for sharing.

Oh how frustrating! I can't believe how long this has gone on, you poor soul. Hope the end is in sight and you'll get a non toxic office in the very neary future.

I'm sorry to hear that your office is still uninhabitable. But I loved that video so much, it made my day.

Thanks for the support, everyone. It's true: have thought of taking this to small claims court. I don't really have the energy for it, though. And who knows if we would win or if we won if they would actually pay up. There isn't really a good system for making people pay. I feel exhausted by 6 months of upheaval.

I thought that the underlay could stay down and I've been hoping it would off-gas but it hasn't gotten much better. It's glued down to the floor, so it's a big deal to get it out. I had hoped I would get a call from someone this week but it doesn't look good. Lottery win, anyone?

Anyway, I really appreciate your support. I'm glad the video touched you. I find it rather meditative and engrossing.

Onward!

Hi, I read your comment about Osteoporosis on another site which led me to your very heartfelt and powerful art site, here. I am a wellness consultant and wonder if you have heard about OsteoDenx- a new bone health formula and helps your bones absorb and let go of minerals in a healthy way in your body. I have osteopoenia and have just had some testing done which is showing that it is working for me! www.strongbones123.com Happy to talk with you about what I am learning.

Yes everyone knows a common result of osteoporosis is fractures .most of them occur in the spine, hip, knee or wrist. Many of us thought of as a women's disease, but osteoporosis affects men too. And you people can go to medical tourism , they know very well about this disease and they treated very well because they have experienced doctors and surgeons.
