Your Dog's Ears The shape of a dog's ear canal makes your canine companion more susceptible to ear infections than people are. Not only that, dogs that swim frequently and dogs with adorable floppy ears are even more prone to ear infections due to moisture that gets trapped in the ear, creating the ideal environment for bacteria to thrive.  The good news is that in many cases, with a little care, you can prevent your dog from developing an ear infection. If your dog does develop an infection, by seeing a vet early there's a good chance that the infection can be cleared up quickly and easily. On the other hand, if your dog's ear infection goes untreated in the early stages a much more serious infection can develop, possibly causing serious symptoms such as facial paralysis, balance and coordination issues, and severe pain. Causes of Ear Infections in Dogs There are a number of different causes of ear infections in dogs. Bacteria in the ear is a primary cause of infections however yeast, fungus and ear mites can all cause your pup's ears to become infected and painful. Other causes of dog ear infections include foreign objects lodged in the ear, trauma, and tumors or polyps. Types of Dog Ear Infections There are three types of ear infections seen in dogs; Otitis externa infections affect the outside of the ear. Otitis media indicates an infection in the dog's middle ear. Otitis interna which are infections of your pet's inner ear. Symptoms of Ear Infections in Dogs If your pooch has developed an ear infection they are likely to feel very uncomfortable and in some cases, the ear may be very painful. If your dog shows any of the following signs of an ear infection contact your vet straight away to book an examination for your pet. Early treatment of ear infections can help to prevent more severe symptoms from developing. Common signs of ear infections in dogs include: Scratching or pawing at the ear Yellow, brown or bloody discharge Redness inside of the ear Odor in the ear Head shaking or tilting Swelling of the ear Crusts or scabs just inside the ear Rubbing ear on floor or furniture If your dog is suffering from a more severe ear infection you may notice other symptoms such as: Loss of balance or coordination Signs of hearing loss Walking in circles Unusual eye movements Treating Your Dog's Ear Infection If your pooch is diagnosed with an ear infection your vet will take the time to clean your dog's ear with a medicated cleanser and prescribe any antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medication appropriate for treating your pet's ear infection. The vet may also prescribe a topical medication and instruct you on how and when to apply it to your dog's ear at home. When caught early and provided with appropriate treatment, uncomplicated dog ear infections typically clear up within just a week or two. If your pup's ear infection is more severe or is due to an underlying health condition, treatment may be more challenging and may take months to resolve. In many cases, more severe cases result in chronic or repeated ear infections over the course of the dog's lifetime. Carefully following your veterinarian's instructions is the key to clearing up your dog's ear infection as quickly as possible. Not finishing prescriptions, or stopping treatment before the infection has completely cleared can lead to a recurring infection that becomes increasingly difficult to treat.  Taking your pup back to the vet for a follow-up appointment is highly recommended for dog ear infections. While it may look as if the infection has cleared there may still be traces of infection that are difficult for pet parents to spot.  Preventing Ear Infections in Dogs Our vets believe that prevention is always better than treatment. To help prevent your dog from developing an ear infection it is important to keep your pup's ears clean and dry. Speak to your vet about the best cleaning solution to use for your dog's ears, and take the time to gently clean your pup's ears every week. Note: The advice provided in this post is intended for informational purposes and does not constitute medical advice regarding pets. For an accurate diagnosis of your pet's condition, please make an appointment with your vet.       Is your pup showing signs of a painful ear infection? Contact Thomasville Veterinary Hospital Urgent Care + Surgery for urgent vet care for your pup. Our Davidson County emergency vets are here to help your dog whenever your regular vet is unavailable.

All night, CPAPs force air through the airway, preventing apnea episodes in which breathing stops. The CPAP face mask, on the other hand, can cause irritation, which can be particularly severe in patients with sensitive skin. Redness, sores, pimples, blisters, and rashes can be painful as well as irritating. Here are some tips to help you cope with the discomfort of using a CPAP sleep mask. Is it time to replace your CPAP mask?If you detect any of the following indicators, it's time to replace your CPAP sleep mask:DrynessThe worn-out cushionDiscoloration (yellowing) or other blemishesExcessive leaking, or more than usualAre You Wearing The Incorrect Mask?CPAP masks aren't for everyone. There are numerous manufacturers, each of which produces at least a few different models. A full mask that covers the nose and mouth is the most common type of CPAP mask, and you most certainly have one. That is, however, far from the only choice. A CPAP mask that merely fits under your nose is also available. If you have inflammation around your mouth, this is an excellent choice. Another alternative is to obtain a mask that goes all the way around the face, which distributes the mask's pressure more evenly. How Well Does Your CPAP Mask Fit?Masks that don't fit properly are a major source of irritation issues with CPAP masks. Masks that are either too big or too tiny might cause problems, so be sure yours is the right size before you use it.Rubbing for eight hours, no matter how gentle, will irritate your skin. If your mask is overly tight, it will irritate your skin by pressing against it and trapping the sweat and oil it produces.Once you've found the right size, you can fine-tune it by adjusting the straps. The straps are usually designed to accommodate most adults, however they may be too short in some circumstances to be comfortable. You may be able to order a custom-sized strap to match your CPAP sleep mask in these cases.Begin by playing around with your mask. If it's too tight, loosen it up for a week and see if it helps. Try going a little tighter if it slips around on your face and doesn't stay in place. With a little trial and error, you might be able to solve your mask problem. Think About CPAP Mask HygieneOils on your skin could be one factor causing the cushion to slide. Wash your face every night before putting on your CPAP mask to help avoid this from occuring. Applying lotion to your face can have the same effect as having oily skin, causing chaffing as the cushion moves around. A CPAP sleep mask's fit might be affected by facial hair. If your mask does not fit properly because you have a beard or moustache, consider cutting or removing your facial hair. Support the show (https://wellawaresystems.com/)

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-8-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 25, 2021.  This revised episode from November 2017 is part of a series this fall of episodes on water connections to the human body and human biology. We start with a public health mystery sound.  Have a listen for about 35 seconds, and see if you can guess what seasonal, precautionary procedure is taking place.  And here's a hint: thinking feverishlycould influence your answer. SOUNDS and VOICES - ~36 sec “Any problems with any vaccines before?”“No.”“Feeling OK today?  No fever or anything like that?”“No.”“And no allergies to foods or medications that you're aware of?”“No.”  …“So, you know, a little bit of arm soreness; that's probably the most of it.  Redness, irritation.   Might be kind of tired for a day or so, or even a low-grade fever or a headache is possible and normal.  If that were to happen, whatever you take for a headache is fine.  Any questions about anything?”“No.”“All right.” …“All right, leave that bandage on for about 10 minutes or so, and take it off anytime you remember after that.  And here's your copy for your records.  Thanks.”“Thank you.”“Have a good day.”If you guessed, a flu shot, you're right!  You heard an influenza vaccination being given in October 2017 at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.  Flu season arrives every year with colder weather, bringing the potential to cause fever, body aches, and other symptoms, some quite serious or even fatal.  The flu affects millions of people in the United States each year, and health agencies like U.S. Centers for the Disease Control and Prevention and the Virginia Department of Health encourage vaccination for everyone older than six months, with some exceptions. But what does the flu have to do with water?  Consider these three connections. First, drinking plenty of fluids is a commonly prescribed treatment for flu sufferers in order to help prevent dehydration resulting from increased body temperature and other responses to the viral infection.  Infants, children, and the elderly are particularly at risk for dehydration. Second, the flu virus is transmitted between humans by respiratory droplets, and researchers have found that transmission is affected by air temperature and humidity. Specifically, transmission occurs more easily in cold, dry air, such as is typically found during fall and winter in temperate areas like Virginia. Third, waterfowl and shorebirds are among the various kinds of birds that harbor avian flu viruses, and water contaminated with aquatic birds' waste can potentially harbor avian flu for some time.  Understanding the factors related to the occurrence and transmission of avian viruses—including the role of contaminated water—is important in monitoring avian flu and its potential to spread to other birds, mammals, or humans. Flu season is upon us, and the CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine by the end of October.  So if you hear this… VOICE - ~3 sec – “Are you here for a flu shot?” …now you'll have not only a health connection for the flu, but some hydrological ones, too. Thanks to staff of Kroger Pharmacy and Hokie Wellness for lending their voices to this episode. We close with some music for, or rather, against the flu.  Here's about 30 seconds of “Shots,” written by Wilson Stern and performed in a 2014, flu-shot-promoting video by the University of Florida's Student Health Care Center. MUSIC - ~28 sec Lyrics:“Last year less than half the population got their flu shot.  Why you wanna be stuck at home with a fever when you could be making this party hot?”“I heard that shot made you ill.”“Naw, son, that news ain't for real.  It tells your body what the virus looks like, so it knows how to deal”“Why you tellin' me this?  I got my flu shot last year.”“This virus mutates constantly, we got new strains here.”“Shots, shots, shots, shots….” SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT TYPES AND NAMES OF INFLUENZA VIRUSESThe following information is quoted from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), “Types of Influenza Viruses,” November 18, 2019, online at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/viruses/types.htm.“There are four types of influenza viruses: A, B, C and D.   Human influenza A and B viruses cause seasonal epidemics of disease (known as the flu season) almost every winter in the United States.  Influenza A viruses are the only influenza viruses known to cause flu pandemics, i.e., global epidemics of flu disease.  A pandemic can occur when a new and very different influenza A virus emerges that both infects people and has the ability to spread efficiently between people.  Influenza type C infections generally cause mild illness and are not thought to cause human flu epidemics.  Influenza D viruses primarily affect cattle and are not known to infect or cause illness in people. ”Influenza A viruses are divided into subtypes based on two proteins on the surface of the virus: the hemagglutinin (H) and the neuraminidase (N).  There are 18 different hemagglutinin subtypes and 11 different neuraminidase subtypes (H1 through H18 and N1 through N11 respectively).  …Current sub-types of influenza A viruses that routinely circulate in people include: A (H1N1) and A (H3N2).  In the spring of 2009, a new influenza A (H1N1) virus emerged to cause illness in people. … “Currently circulating influenza A(H1N1) viruses are related to the pandemic 2009 H1N1 virus that emerged in the spring of 2009 and caused a flu pandemic ( see CDC 2009 H1N1 Flu website for more information).  This virus, scientifically called the ‘A(H1N1)pdm09 virus,' and more generally called ‘2009 H1N1,' has continued to circulate seasonally since then.  These H1N1 viruses have undergone relatively small genetic changes and changes to their antigenic properties (i.e., the properties of the virus that affect immunity) over time.“Of all the influenza viruses that routinely circulate and cause illness in people, influenza A(H3N2) viruses tend to change more rapidly, both genetically and antigenically. … “Influenza B viruses are not divided into subtypes, but instead are further classified into two lineages: B/Yamagata and B/Victoria. …Influenza B viruses generally change more slowly in terms of their genetic and antigenic properties than influenza A viruses, especially influenza A(H3N2) viruses.  Influenza surveillance data from recent years shows co-circulation of influenza B viruses from both lineages in the United States and around the world.  However, the proportion of influenza B viruses from each lineage that circulate can vary by geographic location.“CDC follows an internationally accepted naming convention for influenza viruses.  This convention was accepted by WHO [World Health Organization] in 1979 and published in February 1980 in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, 58(4):585-591 (1980) (see A revision of the system of nomenclature for influenza viruses: a WHO Memorandum[854 KB, 7 pages]).  The approach uses the following components: *the antigenic type (e.g., A, B, C); *the host of origin (e.g., swine, equine, chicken, etc.; for human-origin viruses, no host of origin designation is given); *geographical origin (e.g., Denver, Taiwan, etc.); *strain number (e.g., 15, 7, etc.); *year of isolation (e.g., 57, 2009, etc.); *for influenza A viruses, the hemagglutinin and neuraminidase antigen description in parentheses (e.g., (H1N1). “One influenza A (H1N1), A (H3N2), and one or two influenza B viruses (depending on the vaccine) are included in each year's influenza vaccines.” SOURCES Used for Audio Antonia E.

Korea is famous for its day spas, dermatologists and plastic surgery clinics, in part thanks to a variety of treatments that aren't available overseas. But the other thing they have in common is their use of clinical Korean skincare brand; the type of products you'll usually only find at an aesthetician in western countries. Today, we're exploring what they are, how they're different from non-clinical brands and some of the top trending clinical K-Beauty brands.   CONNECT WITH ME  Instagram: www.instagram.com/lauren.kbeauty  Facebook: www.facebook.com/stylestory.au  Website: www.thekoreanbeautyshow.com  Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com.au/stylestoryau Tik Tok: https://vt.tiktok.com/ZSaHUgHL/ Download Your Free Guide to K-Beauty: https://mailchi.mp/f845eb5d20cd/guidetokbeauty   K-Beauty News Headlines - Amore Pacific Publishes Results on the Skin of Wearing a COVID Face Mask for a Day  Amore Pacific's Research Institute of Technology published the results of their research on the effects of wearing a COVID face mask in the international journal on Skin Research & Technology. Whereas one might expect that the area inside the mask would be moistened due to the humidity trapped in the mask, the study confirmed that it was actually the opposite. Dryness was actually being caused by the breath, which had been heated by the body temperature and then combined with the sealing effect of the mask.  After wearing a mask, various skin changes were observed: Redness became pronounced on the cheeks The perioral area recorded lower levels of hydration Sebum secretion was visible on the forehead, cheeks, chin and perioral area.  Transepidermal water loss was measured.  The study concluded that although wearing a mask is essential for stopping the spread of the COVID-19 virus, skin placed in a mask-wearing environment needs proper moisturizing and soothing care. Skin drying can lead to aging, including a reduction in elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles. What differentiates Clinical Korean Skincare brands from ordinary brands? A few things: Where they are stocked - skin clinics and plastic surgery clinics vs B2C and online sites Price - they tend to be much more expensive (2-3 times the price of roadstore brands)  Ingredients - heavy focus on rejuvenating and skin regenerating ingredients.  Patents and registration as “기능성 화장품” (known in English as “functional cosmetics”). These are more strictly regulated by the KFDA because they have the qualities or properties of drugs.  How "Functional Cosmetics" in Korea are Regulated Under Korean cosmetics and pharmaceutical legislation, there are different levels of regulations for various cosmetic products. A special category known as “functional cosmetics” are the most strictly regulated, and these are products that make whitening claims, wrinkle reducing claims and SPF products.  Another category is regulated as “quasi drugs” and these include things like acne improvement, treatment of atopic dermatitis and hair loss prevention.  If the product is making claims about cells (collagen expression productivity, tyrosinase activity inhibition, cytotoxicity etc) the products need to undergo cell efficacy evaluation testing.  Famous Aesthetician Brands in Korea   There are many famous clinical skincare brands used in clinical settings throughout Korea and the world. Some of the most popular include: Genabelle The brand creates formulas with a skin soothing effect that are moisturising. They focus on light application and absorption. Currently stocked in domestic skin clinics and plastic surgery clinics.  They work with ingredients like PDRN (a DNA extract ingredient that helps with wound repair) Peptides, Centella asiatica (Cica), Allantoin and Houttuynia cordata Some of their most popular products: PDRN Rejuvenating cream (aimed at wrinkle reduction and brightening, barrier repair, elasticity, calming and repairing) Ultra V     This is a bio-medical beauty brand that creates functional cosmetics as well as devices and threads for thread lifts  Their products are stocked in both skin clinics and plastic surgery centres including dissolving threads for thread lifts, medical equipment and functional cosmetics. They have developed a type of thread that lasts for 2 years once inserted made with PCL(Polycaprolactone) and PDO(Polydioxanone) Histolab     This is a professional aesthetician's brand widely used in Korea and distributed only to medical clinics.   They use plant stem cells and many more  One of their most famous products is their Azulan Complex Ampoule 72 Dr G    This is an internationally renowned brand started by the Owner of Goeun Sesang ("Beautiful World") skin clinic.     Wide variety of ingredients to treat different skin issues     Red Blemish Clear Soothing Cream Clinical is very popular in Korea.  Easy Dew  This is a famous cosmeceutical brand that holds patents for its cosmetic technologies.

Nat Phos is known as the ‘pH Balancer.' When we look at our blood there are many many components we look at in order to gauge how ‘healthy' it is. One of these components is our blood acidity (pH level).  pH stands for potential hydrogen. The more hydrogen your body has, the lower your pH (I.e. the more acidic). And the opposite is true as well. The higher your pH value, the less acidic (or more alkaline) your body is.  We want our bodies to be alkaline and not acidic because an alkaline body is a healthy body. When your body is in an ACIDIC state: Abnormal (E.g. cancerous) cells will thrive Your body's detoxification systems will malfunction Your tissues will be depleted of minerals  Your body's natural balance will be disrupted Note here that we don't ever want to be extreme because if you are too alkaline, this too can cause you to be sick. Your perfect blood pH, for what you need to be healthy, is about 7.24. It is also important to note that above we are talking about blood pH and that we have different ‘ideal' pH levels for different areas of our bodies. One notable difference is our stomach where we want the pH to be acidic so that our food can digest effectively.  Tissue salt #9 allows us to target different areas of the body where pH balance is needed. Stomach Pain Have you noticed (or perhaps experienced yourself) excruciating pain before eating? This happens when we have not eaten for a period of time and the hydrochloric Acid has built up in the stomach and begins to cause pain (Hydrochloric Acid is produced to aid digestion).  To help with this type of pain put 3-5 tissue salt #9 tablets under your tongue and repeat every 15 minutes until the pain has dissipated. Or you can dissolve 10 tablets in a bottle of water and sip it over 20 minutes.  This happened to me a few days ago where I was very busy in the clinic and found myself arriving home at 7pm very hungry. As I was preparing my evening meal I began to feel a severe sharp pain developing in my stomach. I took about 15 tablets within the space of 30 minutes and it calmed the pain straight away.  Acid Reflux in infants and children You may have made the connection here that Nat Phos is also wonderful for supporting infants who are suffering from acid reflux. It is very common to have babies with this problem coming to see us in the clinic. When I see these babies it concerns me when I hear about the quantity of medication the baby has been put on as often these medications can cause problems with the immune system for a very long time after taking them.   With babies or young children suffering from acid reflux, we just need to support the body in balancing the Hydrochloric Acid which is done with Nat Phos.  Tissue salt #9 (Nat Phos) can be administered in many different ways for babies and children including: Crushing the tablet and sprinkling over the nipple area (if the baby is breastfed) Dissolving the tablet in boiled water (allowing it to cool to room temperature before giving to the baby) or your milk in a bottle The quantity depends on the age of the child but generally you can start with 1 tablet given over the course of a day and increasing to 3 or 4 tablets over a day for a toddler. If you are wondering why acid reflux in babies is such a common problem the main reason is the sphincter at the top of the stomach is not yet developed properly and thus the acid and food comes back up into the eosophagus and causes pain. In most cases this resolves itself around the age of 18 to 24 months but in some cases the sphincter is not working properly because the breastfeeding mother is calcium deficient and thus not enough calcium is coming through to the baby. If you go back to the episode where we talk about tissue salt #2 (calcium Phosphate), you will begin to connect dots and see that in some cases it is also a good idea to give this tissue salt as well to help the muscles contract properly.  Other Uses: Depressive feelings with exhaustion: When a person feels depressed or down from being exhausted Nat Phos is going to be a very good support.  Sleep: If you struggle to sleep well, Nat Phos can be very helpful. Self Esteem: There is an association between sodium and low self esteem. (In last week's episode we spoke about Nat Mur which is helpful for grief.) Lactic Acid: Pop 10 to 20 tablets of Nat Phos in your bath after exercise to help neutralize lactic acid build up.  Post Alcohol: Alcoholic beverages are very acid Signs you may be needing Nat Phos: Sweet food and dairy cravings If you notice sweat/grease build up on the armpit area of your T-shirts or on your pillow. You will most likely be able to smell this ‘sweat acid.' Acne Greasy and brittle hair Acidic conditions like Gout Creamy on the back of the tongue Blisters or stinging sensation on tip of tongue A feeling of having a hair or something in your mouth (but nothing is there). Fat cheeks The skin of the face is a bit greasy But this can be easily wiped off.  Acid wash face - Redness (almost like a butterfly) over the face Small vertical lines  that are parallel to each other around the mouth (this is often referred to as smokers lines.) As you can see there are many ways the body can tell us we need Nat Phos. A good way to remember is that when we are either too dry or too moist we need tissue salt #8 (that we spoke about last week) but when we are too oily/greasy and have pain, we need tissue salt #9.

Is your face constantly sore, prone to irritation, redness, tingles or dryness no matter how much moisturiser you lather on? If so, then stay tuned because on today’s episode of The Korean Beauty Show Podcast, we’re covering barrier damage and how to know if you’ve damaged yours. CONNECT WITH ME  Instagram: www.instagram.com/lauren.kbeauty  Facebook: www.facebook.com/stylestory.au  Website: www.thekoreanbeautyshow.com  Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com.au/stylestoryau Tik Tok: https://vt.tiktok.com/ZSaHUgHL/ Download Your Free Guide to K-Beauty: https://mailchi.mp/f845eb5d20cd/guidetokbeauty   What is your Skin Barrier? Your skin barrier is protected by a thin layer of lipids and sweat from your glands.  This protective layer is called the acid mantle.  The main role of your acid mantle is to help your skin retain moisture while protecting it from harm caused by bacteria and environmental factors If your acid mantle is out of balance, your skin barrier becomes more prone to damage.   Taking care of your Acid Mantle Not only does it have to contend with bacteria and pollution chipping away at it, there are many things we do in the name of good skincare that can damage our mantle.  The good news is that there are ways to maintain it. You can adjust the pH of your skin by adding a substance to it that is either more acidic or more alkaline (chemistry, urghh…). Anything you put on your skin that is higher or lower than its natural pH will raise or lower the skin’s pH as well.  This can either be bad (i.e. weakening your acid mantle) or good (i.e. restoring skin to its naturally balanced state). If you’re suffering from a damaged acid mantle, then swapping over to a pH balanced cleanser may be just the cure you’re looking for. Watching the pH of your cleansers in particular is important for people with: A compromised barrier Blemishes Redness   Even if you don’t suffer from these, if you incorporate AHA and BHA products into your beauty routine, you might also want to watch the pH of your face wash.  Why? Because the pH of your face wash will also directly affect how well your AHA and BHA products work. If your cleanser is not correctly pH balanced, your acids will also be thrown out of balance, which can inhibit their effectiveness.   How to Know If You’ve Damaged Your Barrier If you’re suffering from: Sore skin; Sudden irritation; Redness; Tingly skin; Dry skin no matter how much moisturiser you put on You may have damaged your skin barrier. This is common when you are using products that are poorly formulated, harsh, too basic or alkaline. Don’t panic though.  With the right care, you can regain a strong skin barrier and be back on the way to healthy, glowing skin before you know it! Repairing your Skin Barrier If you’ve overdone it on the acids or harsh cleansers, follow these steps: Stick to the basics – when your skin is going haywire, the temptation is to add more and more products to try to get things right.  However, the more complicated the routine, the harder it can be to repair skin problems.  Resist the temptation to do more and get back to fundamentals. Don’t go too hard on the cleanse – Using water that’s too hot, harsh cleansers or exfoliants may feel effective, but having a heavy cleanse may harm your skin. This is because not only does it strip away the dead skin cells on the surface, but your skin’s barrier as well.  For a gentle yet effective cleansing routine that’s suitable for all skin types, check out: Cleansing Oilfrom B-Lab I Am Sorry Just Cleansing; and APLB Sensitive Micro Cleansing Foam. Protecting and Maintaining your Skin Barrier  There are a great range of K-Beauty products that can help with maintaining a strong skin barrier as well. Depending on how much TLC your skin barrier needs, here are a few of our favourites. If you need all-round intensive barrier repair, try out Etude House’s Soon Jung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream.  This pH balanced moisturiser is packed with Centella Asiatica and is free from potential irritants like synthetic fragrance, mineral oil or parabens. It can help to sooth and repair damaged skin. For a toner free from alcohol or fragrance, try iUNIK’s Hyaluronic Acid toner. For repairing skin that feels dry and flaky, iUNIK’s Beta Glucan range is a great option.  This range contains a moisture cream and serum, harnessing the antioxidant power of mushrooms to hydrate, assist with sensitivity and improve redness.

- Char Simpson You've got to create this new normal. You just got to find what makes you happy. And create this new normal and what makes you happy may be almost very, very different from what it was with your husband, but it's just you. And so you you weren't meant to just be miserable. Life's going to be good.   INTRO My guest today is Char Simpson.  To her many Instagram followers, she is known as the Traveling Black Widow, an older, beautiful Black woman traveling the world…or traveling regionally during COVID, offering tips on great gifts to buy or personal health or the best places to eat in Nashville.  Char is classy with a little hint of sassy.  And today she is going deep, telling us about the love of her life, her soulmate, husband, and travel partner, Roy:  what she loved about him and what is was like to walk with him through cancer, to bury him, and to live, fully, a life she never would have chosen for herself.    As I mentioned, Char is also known as the Traveling Black Widow, a handle that her daughter Liz created for her.  As Char tells it, Liz got tired of sitting, one-on-one, looking through photos and thought that her mom could benefit from a larger audience.    - Char Simpson I had no idea what Instagram was. And I didn't really want to be on there because like a lot of people, I think my age, we feel like, well, I don't want everybody knowing my business and in my life and not realizing I had total control over that.   Char Simpson But it it sort of took off rather quickly. I was featured a picture of me on a boat in New Zealand at the Milford Sound that picture was featured on Travel Noir. And lots of people start following me then and so then know just sort of grew from there. But that was the first time I was ever featured and that was a pretty big online Instagram site. And and so that sort of launched me, really.   Char is also a court-appointed special advocate, a CASA, for two families   - Char Simpson I see the children monthly and sometimes there's court. There's other kinds of meetings with the other providers and people supporting the kids. And that has, you know, taken some of my time and been very, very gratifying for me before COVID and and during this lockdown time.   And, like a lot of us, she has spent a fair amount of Netflix recently, especially Bollywood films.  - Char Simpson And then it seems the way that Netflix has designed their programs, they are just so captivating. And when you get to the end, they go into the other one before you can stop yourself.   - Liesel Mertes Absolutely, they've got the psychology down.   - Char Simpson They really do. I just don't even understand what kind of marketing mentality came up with that, because it's pure genius.   Char and Roy first met in Cleveland.  She was a teacher who had just moved from Detroit, a city that she loved.  She wasn’t thrilled about the move and kept spending weekends back in Detroit.  Until all of that changed one Friday morning in the main office at the school.    - Char Simpson And this really, really handsome guy, young guy goes walking through. And so I asked the secretary, I was like, who's that guy? And says, Oh, that's Mr. Simpson. He's the basketball coach. Is he single? She's like, Yeah. I said, OK, right. So I thought, yeah, I told my department chairman because he had been trying to match me up with people from all over town. I was always having these blind dates in my department chairman had come up with.   - Char Simpson So I told him I saw this guy in the office this morning. And when I saw him, I just thought, wow, he's so handsome, he'd make beautiful children.   - Char Simpson And that actually was my thought standing there in the office. So anyhow, he said, we'll stay in town this weekend and Friday after school. We all go to Happy Hour. So instead of just driving right back to Detroit, one should go to happy hour with all the teachers. So anyhow, I went to Happy Hour. He called Mr. Simpson over to our table and introduced me and we chatted. And that was sort of the beginning of it.   - Char Simpson That evening I went to the school's football game and he was there and he ended up sitting over with our department and and from there just sort of took off.   They dated for two years before getting married.  Roy moved out of education and a job transfer brought the couple to Indiana.  Char sang in the choir at their church and Roy was an usher.     - Liesel Mertes What were some of the things that you just really enjoyed doing with one another?   - Char Simpson I would say most everything, just anything that we had to do, we just we really, really I do believe we're soul mates. I know some people don't believe in that term, but I really do. And we just enjoyed each other's company.   - Char Simpson He was not a person to have lots of guy friends. And so, I mean, he had some friends, but it wasn't like he wasn't hanging out with the guys and going to stuff with the guys.   - Char Simpson He could enjoy going to a football game with me, I think as much as he'd enjoy going to one with one of the guys. And so we did do just all kinds of things, you know, just within our marriage from just being at home, doing puzzles, jigsaw puzzles to going out, fishing together. When we dated, we went fishing a lot up around Cleveland. There are lots of really Great Lakes in Lake Erie. And so we did lots of fishing and just always spent a lot of time together.   - Char Simpson He was so, so, so helpful at home and he grew more helpful. My my daughter sometimes kids me about how I didn't do anything. And I told her it was a process over the years because I stayed home until she quit. When she was born, I stayed home till kindergarten. And so I said I didn't just stay home all day doing nothing, waiting for him to get there and do everything. But once once I went back to work, you know, we sort of shared chores.   - Char Simpson But he probably did more than the average husband. He was just really just a really great guy.   - Char Simpson And I think part of that was that his he had a twin sister and five other sisters. And so he was just raised in a home where the guys really looked out for the girls and with him having a twin, he said on his first day of kindergarten, his mom and dad really talked to him about you. Make sure you take care of Connie and you do this and you do that and make sure she has her book bag and her coat and just all these things.   - Char Simpson So he was always used to looking out for a woman.   - Liesel Mertes Yeah, I love that. That's really sweet. Family of origin can shape you.   - Char Simpson Yes, definitely.   By way of a sidenote, I interviewed Char’s daughter, Liz, in an earlier Handle with Care episode.  Liz is a dentist who was injured at work.  If you haven’t listened, make that your next listen…and I talk about her love for her dad, Roy.   - Liesel Mertes Well, and I remember Liz talking even in her interview, and still she just your daughter carries with her such an impact that he had as a father in her life, you know, and just carrying that in a really powerful way.   - Char Simpson Yeah, yeah. He really was an amazing father. And she had a really rough time when he got sick and and when he died, I think she was it was is difficult while he was sick, as it was when he died for her.   Roy started to get sick in 2005.  His initial diagnosis was grim, just a few months.  In the end, he lived for two and a half years past his diagnosis.    - Liesel Mertes How did you feel when you first got the news?   - Char Simpson Oh, when I first got the news, I mean, I was absolutely devastated. You know, you go to the doctor and you know you know that it's something is just not right. And so you're expecting bad news and maybe even cancer because cancer really runs in his family. So you know that maybe there's cancer, but you never expect someone to say three to four months to live.   - Char Simpson That is just I mean, I I got goosebumps just now saying that again, because it's just the most shocking news. It's just the most shocking news.   - Char Simpson You walk into a doctor's office, one person, and you come out almost a widow named.   - Liesel Mertes What did a particularly challenging like day or moment like, as you think about those 30 months, what was a particularly hard time for you?   - Char Simpson Well, just. I guess maybe sleeping I think sleeping was was sort of difficult because, you know, you have when there's something on your mind or even you don't think it's on your mind and you wake up during the night, I don't know what it is about the human brain, but certainly for my brain, when I wake up during the night, I have the very worst thoughts, just horrible, horrible thoughts.   - Char Simpson And trying to get back to sleep was just so difficult. And sometimes I'd wake up because of a dream. You know, I would just dream that I was at a funeral or mainly I would sort of dream I was at his funeral or I was a dream. I was picking out coffins or something.   - Char Simpson And then your your psyche just wakes you up, you know, it just won't let you endure that for so long. So you wake up, then you're laying there, you know, and here's this person who, you know, sounds OK and seems OK.   - Char Simpson But to know inside all this is going on. And one day. Yeah, I am going to be at your funeral. It just I just think sleeping was just the worst part of it all for me.   - Liesel Mertes Oh yeah. Well and when you're not well rested, the challenge of meeting whatever the next day brings is all that much harder.   - Char Simpson Right. Right.   - Liesel Mertes What, what was did you feel like you had a community of people around you that during those 30 months were supportive and helpful?   - Char Simpson It was the most incredible time in my life. I normally have, you know, two or three really close girlfriends throughout life. I've not been a person with, you know, big crowds of girlfriends. I've always had, you know, two or three that were really close.   - Char Simpson And for some reason during that time, I had so doggone many girlfriends, you know, things that happened. I had been in a a group at church. This pastoral care counseling had been trained to become a counselor.   - Char Simpson And this other girl that was with me when we'd go out to visit family, she and I became so close. As a matter of fact, we were so close that when we went to the doctor appointment where we found out he had the three months to live, she was with us when I told her we were going to that this well, I'll go with you. And and my sister in law had told me also she'd just take someone with you when you go to the doctor to get this report so somebody can take notes on what the doctor says.   - Char Simpson Because my husband's sister, had she's been through all three or three or four of the siblings already dying from cancer. So she sort of knew the ropes on it. And so she said, take a friend.   - Char Simpson So I took this friend and she was just she was just the most valuable resource and all. She was just so great. And I just I don't know.   - Char Simpson Neighbors somehow became friendlier neighbors. You know, you just wave at the mailbox. Well, all of a sudden, you know, they're dropping by. And that whole 30 months, there were just I had this enormous support group.   - Char Simpson It was so amazing.   - Char Simpson Oh, that's so amazing, because some of the people I actually have not even seen since after his funeral. Yeah. And, you know, and yet, you know, during that time, you know, somebody would oh, like one day I got home from work and we've got a pretty big yard and lots of trees. And I mean, there were leaves every that first fall that October when we were when he was just feeling so weak and couldn't get the leaves or anything.   - Char Simpson And it had to have been after the diagnosis. It must have been the next fall anyway. And I mentioned to one of the guys that were, you know, taught in the classroom next to me, and I said something about, oh, my gosh, you know, my husband, he's just so weak. And all this is the I pass by your house the other day. So you guys got a lot of leaves. I was like, yeah, yeah, we've got to, you know, got to do something about that.   - Char Simpson That afternoon, I get home from work late and here are a bunch of guys from my school, some of the male teachers at my school out in my yard raking leaves. One of us got this mower he's doing leaves there about four or five guys. He lived close to me. The other guys didn't even I didn't actually even know where they lived, but he had organized this thing of getting our leaves up. And I don't know, away just sobbing, I was like, boy, I'm looking forward to all these people raking leaves.   MUSICAL TRANSITION Open enrollment season is here, which means that you are facing lots of options and, potentially, lots of questions about your benefit plans for 2021.  Which is where FullStack PEO can help.  If you are an entrepreneur or small business owner, let FullStack handle the complex, shifting world of employee benefits so you can get back to work.  I’m a big fan of the people at FullStack and the work that they do to bring care to your people.   We are also sponsored by Handle with Care Consulting, my company.  With interactive workshops, certificate programs, and coaching sessions on empathy, resiliency, and hard conversations, we help you make work a place that people want to come to when times get tough.  And now, back to the episode   MUSICAL TRANSITION   - Liesel Mertes Will you tell me a little bit more about what his final days were like for you?   - Char Simpson It is just so painful to watch someone who has been this handsome man that you saw across a crowded room and to see him go down to skin and bones and lose his spirit, you know, just become a real quiet kind of person.   - Char Simpson And just all the changes that someone goes through, I think especially when they battle cancer and they really just want to keep going and they keep plodding along. Being there alongside for me and my personality was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life.   A few months before he died, Roy and Char went down to Florida for spring break.    - Char Simpson And so we had gone up to Amelia Island and there was a place there where you could arrange these deep sea fishing trips. And so we we were staying in Ponte Vedra, which was, I don't know, maybe 40 minutes from there.   - Char Simpson Anyway, we drove up one day to check out, you know, get signed up and see the situation for the deep sea fishing. And on the way back, he was like, oh, sure, these roads were we on?   - Char Simpson And I was like, we should stay on this one. And he was sort of like getting lost driving.   - Char Simpson And we were just on the main freeway that went right to our hotel.   - Char Simpson And so that was sort of disturbing because the next morning when he got up to go for the deep sea fishing, he he was going to go alone while he came back early morning. And I was like, hey, what happened? And he's like, I don't know, I couldn't find my way up there. And I was like, What you've got? Oh, my gosh, what about the maps and the brochures?   - Char Simpson And he's like, I could I don't know, I just couldn't find my way up there. So it's like, I don't know. I just didn't feel like doing so. He had come back.   - Char Simpson Well, that I mean, my heart was just beating heart in my chest because it's like, oh my God, how could he not read the map? And, you know, and yet he could drive. He could see. And it's like, I don't know, I just was almost just in a panic and trying to stand there and look cool.   - Char Simpson But anyway, we came on back home and also while we were in Florida, the thing to that was just breaking my heart when we would go out to dinner. Sometimes one night he was like, you know, I'm just I'm not terribly hungry. And I had ordered chicken wings. He's like, I just have one of your wings. I was like, what am I, wings? One of these, like, you know, just let's just split to order a chicken wings.   - Char Simpson And for a grown man, six two to split ordered chicken wings. Yeah, it was like, oh, God, what's going on? What is going on?   - Char Simpson And anyway, so we flew home Sunday, the next Saturday, that Saturday morning.   - Char Simpson He always woke up real early and he made coffee and always just brought me up a cup of coffee. Well, when he walked in the room with the cup of coffee for me, he walked into the to the post the bedpost and coffee went everywhere.   - Char Simpson And he was like, oh, my God. And as he was walking and he says, I just took your coffee into the guest room, I was like, you know, and anyhow, he walks into the bedpost and that moment, I know. This is it. This is it. And I called 911. I said, know my husband is just walked into a bedposts and he but he can see and anyhow they came out, went to emergency room and that's when they found cancer had spread to his brain.   - Char Simpson As long as it was it was everywhere.   - Char Simpson It was everywhere. And so what I had been seeing in Florida was just all indicative of the beginning of the end. And it was, you know, he went downhill. That was April 12th, that Saturday morning. And and he died June 30th.   - Char Simpson Mhm. So that's when you just sort of couldn't battle when it gets to that point, you know, you're just just sort of everyday going down a little bit.   - Char Simpson So that was the those were the worst weeks of my life. It was absolutely horrible. His sister came up. His twin sister came and stayed for a little while so I could finish out the school year.   - Liesel Mertes And in the end, it just was downhill from that point. Yeah, well, and I. There is walking with someone through their dying. And then there is the reality of looking at life that extends beyond them.   - Liesel Mertes What, what sort of feelings? We're confronting you the day after his funeral as you woke up as a widow.   - Char Simpson Well, that's pretty horrible. I'm. I guess I almost I don't know, I'll have to think for a moment how I really felt, just the part, I guess that does not so horrible.   - Char Simpson It's like once everybody's gone, it's a friend of mine, my best friend from college. She came down and she was here for a long time and she stayed after the funeral for about a week. So, you know, we would go out and have lunch and, you know, do things. So, you know, I think she was just really deliberately trying to keep me really active. And and my daughter had had to go somewhere or I don't know if she went back for a summer program at school or something, but she had ask my friend to stay in town with me and just give me some time to transition to the empty house.   - Char Simpson And and when my friend did leave that next week, then it was I mean, the house is just so silent. It's so sad. It's I haven't had that kind of intense sadness again in life that I had that whole summer.   - Char Simpson I mean, I would I would try to get up and move around because I'm the kind of person that for me, walking is therapeutic. So I would try to get up and go out for a walk and just walking down the street and passing a neighbor's house that maybe he always chatted with or somebody driving by see me and they stopped the car.   - Char Simpson You know, they look over Charlotte, how are you? Well, then I burst out crying. I hate when people would say, how are you? That was just. Oh, gosh, just the worst. Or if I go to I know one day I went to Target and one of my coworkers like Charlotte and we're having this bubbly conversation. I'm all great. And then he's like, Now, Charlotte, tell me, how are you?   - Char Simpson Well, when he said that, like, open the floodgates, I mean, there's something so loud that he's like, oh, I'm so sorry. I'm so so people are walking by looking at me. It was so embarrassing. And I did that for the longest. For the longest.   - Char Simpson You know, you can be so composed and think, OK, I'm going to go to church. And if someone says, how you doing? I'm going to I'm going to keep it all in. And it's always that person that sort of sneaks up on you that you are expecting them because the conversations going merrily along and then they turn like, so tell me. Right.   - Char Simpson I really feel and I don't know just when people would say that I couldn't hold it in.   - Liesel Mertes Did you did you leave those interactions like at church or target thinking? I wish they never would have said anything.   - Char Simpson Yes. Yeah, yeah. Because I would even really, like, avoid people, you know, I would just sort of, you know, if I saw somebody sort of coming my way because like at work, it was so bad. It was really bad.   - Char Simpson Because if, you know, if you went in the mailroom, you know, all the the teachers mailboxes and stuff. And so you're in there, you happen to be the only person. And then someone comes in in like, oh, I heard about your husband this summer. I'm so, so sorry. How are you? Yeah. Oh, man. Now here I am in the mail room. I make up for getting what I love. It was just that was the spot.   - Liesel Mertes So the how are you did not feel supported. That felt like something that kind of derailed you. What were things that you would say this this actually was helpful? Like this was a good thing that people did to support me.   - Char Simpson Hmm, well, I don't think they meant to derail me, it just did, you know, because I've sort of learned from that one. I'm talking to someone who's lost someone to not go into that deep. So how are you?   - Char Simpson I know how that just pierces your heart, but there were just maybe nice notes that people would send and, you know, that you could see in private and deal with in private or I don't know, this sounds probably so weird,   - Char Simpson But I just really liked when people kept it sort of lighthearted. Yeah. You know, and they were just lighthearted because one morning out of when I was at the mall in the some friend of his, this lady who was also a friend of mine, that they had worked together and they were really close.   - Char Simpson And and so I passed by just like, hey, how are you doing? I'm like, fine, great. Well, you look great. So you must be great. And then she kept going great.   - Liesel Mertes Yeah, well, and I, I hear also some of the dynamics of different personalities in that moment, too, and tell me tell me if this sounds like it fits, but that sense of being put on the spot all of a sudden with people and really that that felt it sounds uncomfortable to you of like, "don't don't put me on the spot to have to go through all of that right now." Like it caught you off guard in ways that really felt, you know, uncaring, even if they didn't intend it to.   - Char Simpson Yeah, I guess maybe that was the element of it, that that just doesn't quite fit with my personality. Maybe just as a control person being very controlling. I didn't appreciate or it's not that I didn't appreciate because I knew they were caring, but it's just that it didn't work well for me to just have that on me like that.   - Liesel Mertes Well, and especially if it was going to ruin your makeup like the one I'm already dealing with this hard thing. Yeah.   - Char Simpson And it you know, it's just it's so hard because you have expected your life to go a particular direction. And and it just it just like this wasn't the plan at all. I mean, I felt like my husband probably would die before me. And and I think a lot of women, we sort of know statistically that that probably will happen. So we're prepared to be a widow someday like it. Eighty something. Eighty five, but not as a younger you like.   - Char Simpson My husband was 60 when he died. Well, I certainly did not expect to be a widow.   Char and Roy would travel a lot.  They thought that, in retirement, maybe they would rent and RV and explore or go to California.    - Char Simpson So every year we were going someplace around the country to see is this where maybe we'd like to live when we retire? So once again and   - Char Simpson I know single women retire in other places, but I haven't been able to figure out where I want to retire by myself other than just here in my house. So I'm still right here in Indianapolis.   - Char Simpson I have no place in mind that I might want to move. For retirement, I don't know, I just doesn't seem like a fun thing to me to move to another city where I don't know anyone and have to meet a lot of new people all by myself.   - Liesel Mertes Yeah, the recalibrating of what for so long had been a together thing.   - Char Simpson Yeah. Yeah. And as long as he's been gone, I still have not decided on a place that I'd want to relocate.   - Liesel Mertes Well, and I imagine also in the dailiness like in any marriage there, there tends to be like a rough kind of division of tasks. You know, even like you said, he would bring you coffee in the morning. Did you find yourself as a newly widowed person confronted by his absence? In a lot of ways, like, oh, I didn't have to do this because Roy used to do this, but now I need to.   - Char Simpson Oh, my gosh, there were just so many things because he really like I said over the years, he became more and more giving. And I would like to think I did, too. I mean, he never had to pick out a stitch of his clothes, and yet he was most well dressed men in town because I love shopping and shopping in the men's department for all his stuff, too. But he did. He didn't mind doing stuff around the house and he did a lot.   - Char Simpson So there were so many things that I had to learn. And a friend of mine has a home and she's never been married and she's a homeowner. And so I would have to call her all kinds of times about just different things and well, who do I call to get this repaired? Or one time there was the scratching sound in the in the master in my bedroom behind the fireplace, you could hear that an animal somehow was behind the wall there in the bedroom like two o'clock in the morning.   - Char Simpson And I was just sitting there like, oh, my God, who do I call? What do I do?   - Char Simpson And I end up calling my beautician because she has this uncle that she's always talking about. Uncle Benny and Uncle Benny do everything I said. OK, I'll call Angel and ask her what Uncle Benny know what this could be scratching on the wall of my bedroom at 2:00 in the morning.   - Char Simpson And so, like the next morning, Uncle Benny came to my house and came up and he looked around the house and it turned out it was a raccoon. And so I had to get a service and all that dealt with getting raccoons out of your house. He was out it wasn't out in the house. So you could see it, but he was within the behind the drywall. So it was just stuff where I never knew who to call. It was just it was horrible.   - Char Simpson It was so horrible. Right.   - Liesel Mertes Well, and I imagine those are the moments like you don't prepare for them. They just catch you off guard where you think, oh, yeah. Here's one more reminder ride of my life being different than I thought it would be.   - Char Simpson Absolutely. Because you prepare, I think, at least for me, you do prepare financially because you you know, it does hit you like, wait a minute, I'm going to be living off of one income. You know, when you do start thinking about that, you know, I didn't want to discuss it with people because I didn't want anyone to think that I'm thinking about him dying. But I would start reading articles or watching Suze Orman and stuff and just to at least be prepared financially, like, how am I going to handle this?   - Char Simpson What am I going to do? But the other things and I think probably anybody who naturally would think financially to have that figured out, but other stuff like home repairs and oh, just there's just so many things that come at you like that summer. I don't know why I always think of this, but it bothered me so much. A friend called and invited me. She was having a big cookout, I guess that maybe it was Labor Day weekend.   - Char Simpson And so she called in and it was a pitch-in you brought a dish and all that. And she's like, and I want you to come. And I was like, OK, let me think about it. When I was at that point, still crying too much, really be around a lot of people. But when I thought about it, it's like I don't I couldn't remember when I had gone to a cookout alone.   - Char Simpson Right. I could not picture myself driving to her house, getting out of the car, taking a decision. I don't know. And I know it's not a big deal. I'm sure a lot of people listening to this think, well, that's no big deal. That was the biggest deal to me. Yeah. I just couldn't picture going to a cookout by myself.   - Liesel Mertes Right. Well, I appreciate you sharing that because I think it gives voice to those little moments like life is made up of like their little moments that are big moments because it's just where it hits home exactly like you said, this reflection of it's been it's been decades since I've done this   - Char Simpson Right, I step into all of these places, which because I was getting my nails done and I was telling my nail tech, I said I'm invited to a cookout. Saturday, I sit in. I haven't been to a cookout by myself in so long, I said I just and then all of a sudden I start sobbing there with her and she's like, well, you haven't been don't you know, just go ahead. Don't worry about it. But that I will never forget how upset I was at the thought that she really was expecting me to come.   - Char Simpson And it's like, do you have any idea the last time I walked into a cookout by myself.   - Liesel Mertes What are some of the other misconceptions that people have about life as a widow or or something that you say? I just wish people like I wish I could flip the switch and people could just get this about what it is to be a widow. Like, I wish I didn't have to explain it, OK?   - Char Simpson I definitely know how I feel. I feel very strongly that I feel my husband, as I said earlier, my husband and I really we're soulmates and I do not believe that there is another soulmate on the planet for me. Some people seem to think maybe there is. I don't think so. I figure, you know, soul mate, that's the singular. You get one and that's it. And so when people ask if I'm dating or they feel like, oh, but, oh, you know, all your Dunedoo should be dating or you just seem like such a lively, fun person and oh, there's the you should go and they start naming websites that I should go to and it's like I have no desire to date to.   - Char Simpson I really don't have any desire to have male companionship. Yeah. I just absolutely. And nobody ever can believe it.   - Char Simpson I feel like I had 31 years with the man who was crazy about me, worshipped the ground I walk on did everything in the world for me. It's not going to get any better than that. And, and even if somehow it was going to get any better than that, I am at total peace. Total joy right here with just doing my thing, enjoying my solitude.   - Char Simpson I just have no desire for another guy. I mean, if some if somehow I don't know, you know, if I met a guy and then we were super, super, super compatible, I wouldn't just say, oh, I don't want to be bothered with you. But as far as actually putting forth any effort whatsoever, this entire time that I've been a widow, I've never put forth any effort. I just have no desire for it.   - Liesel Mertes What helped you in the process? Because, you know, social media always is just a partial reflection of truth, but you do seem to live very fully even as you talk about your life. Now, what has been important for you in moving towards a normal that is more than just overwhelmingly sad?   - Char Simpson Well, I think. That having been overwhelmingly sad for so long, I did at one point just and I didn't want to date or anything and but I just thought I just don't like being this down and this just that down all the time.   - Char Simpson And so I did talk with my doctor about it. And and because I found myself sort of, I don't know, becoming a little bit irritable because probably because of my lack of sleep. Yeah. And and so anyhow, I talk with my doctor and she did recommend a medication.   - Char Simpson And I'm really glad that she did, because I think that helped me too, at times when I was just really irritable and crabby and just couldn't go to sleep. She did suggest sleeping medication and I did it with Ambien and I took an Ambien.   - Char Simpson And that first night I woke up at 12 and I never got back to sleep again. Oh, no, never. And I had to go to work the next morning with, like, you know, two, two and a half hours sleep.   - Char Simpson So I knew that I was going to be one of the Ambien horror stories, so had a different kind of way. And so, anyhow, my concern just was just sort of the irritability. I thought, OK, I can get to sleep. So I'm kind of okay. But I, you know, just something. So I'm not so edgy so much of the time. And so then she did just recommend and got me a prescription just for Xanax to use, just as needed.   - Char Simpson And I think it was this one class that I had at the time that was very, very, very challenging to a group of kids to deal with. And, and so I would, you know, like take a half a Xanax just before them, because it's like this is just wipe me out. Yeah. When it was absolutely life changing. Absolutely life changing and I'm not trying to, you know, push drugs on people, but as a counselor for so many years and as a teacher, I have seen children's lives totally changed when they did take the correct medication for whatever need they might have had.   - Char Simpson And so that's why I was open minded when she said, you know, maybe just something just to sort of take the edge off. So you aren't just, you know, just so edgy and irritable and all this.   - Char Simpson And so I honestly would say that Xanax just sort of turned my life around during that time and gave me control of my mind and able to just sort of calm down, think through, not be so edgy, not be, you know, just burst out crying at the drop of a hat and just get control of my life.   Yeah. Helped you. Well, as you said, feel the capacity for a reality beyond that. Right. Redness. Right.   - Liesel Mertes Are there are there things that as people have been your friends in this new season of widowhood that have been really helpful for you?   - Char Simpson People just tried to get me out of the house and doing things. And I appreciated that because I didn't have the energy to initiate anything or the energy to even I mean, I would go to movies, I've always gone to movies, but as far as like there were just things I didn't want to do alone. Right. Just absolutely didn't want to do alone. So it was nice when even a married girlfriend, you know, would would do something like on a Friday or Saturday night.   - Char Simpson Right. Go out of their way to see for you. You didn't have to do all the logistics you mentioned in passing.   - Liesel Mertes And I imagine this could be really true. But I'd love for you to unpack it a little bit more. Couple friends that fell by the wayside. Did that feel painful? Did it happen all at once? How did that feel for you?   - Char Simpson Well, you know, I had read about that in, you know, in fiction novels and didn't know how very real it was, but I just found it to be very real. They just just sort of disappeared. Hmm. And I can't think other than the friend with the bat invited me for the cookout. Couple friends just did not invite me by myself to something they were having, especially when they were going to be other couples, when it was going to be all couples.   - Char Simpson No, there's you're just not I was not invited.   - Liesel Mertes Did you realize that that was happening in real time? Like, imagine that can feel kind of painful if you hear that they've all got together or like, did it did it feel hard as it was happening or did it just kind of happened gradually?   - Char Simpson I guess it's sort of hard, but then I guess I just heard about it or seen it in movies or books or something, so I knew that it could happen, but it still was a little surprising. But then to. You just sort of noticed, and this sounds really I don't know how it sounds, but I'll just say it, you just sort of notice that it just seems like maybe wives get a concern that, you know, you're used to having a husband around and you are not going to be over here looking at my husband because you're just used to having a house.   - Char Simpson I don't know. It's just a it's a weird kind of vibe that you sort of sense that it is OK, like shortly maybe, I don't know, maybe that fall, you know, when might start being a problem.   - Char Simpson And I didn't know mice were a problem. I guess my husband always took care of that. And so anyhow, when in the attic one day and I see these mice droppings, I'm like, oh my gosh. And I notice there's mice traps and like, oh, OK. So he had been dealing with the mice in the attic and I didn't know that. So I went and bought traps and at the store they showed me how to set a trap.   - Char Simpson I get home. I can't figure out how to set the trap. So I called a friend of mine down the street, ask her, it's like, you know, have said a mouse traps like. No, I said. And so I ask her. Her husband was like, he does not a surprise. And I was like, oh, OK. But they have mice too. So I'm like, who's setting their mice traps?   - Char Simpson  So she didn't want him. Yeah, she didn't want him to come down and set my mouth.   - Char Simpson So I was like, I know that was the first one. I was just like, oh, this is interesting. Everybody in the neighborhood has mice and nobody's husband sort of set mousetraps, almost like you had had a place within that ecosystem, like a roll ride your husband.   - Liesel Mertes You're kind of a bogey and the rules of interaction had shifted.   - Char Simpson Yeah, I do. Yeah.   - Char Simpson Yeah. So the mouse trap, I think was maybe the first thing. And then after that there would just be actually that one was such a slap in the face. I don't know that I really ask too many other people because I just thought, well, OK, I think that's my introduction to Widow 101.   MUSICAL TRANSITION   - Char Simpson Understand your finances. I've met women who whose husbands did everything. I mean everything. And they had no idea the balance on their home. They had no idea if the house was even paid off. They didn't know what their gas bill was. They knew nothing at all. And I have found that those widows have a very, very hard time because, you know, for me, I was dealing with just the emotions of he's gone and I miss him and that I knew about the budget.   - Char Simpson I knew about the money. I knew, you know, that I was going to be OK. But if you have no idea about you don't know where things are. That would just really, really add to the whole grieving process. I, I just can't imagine how much it would add because you don't even know what you don't know.   - Char Simpson A piece of advice I got that was was so beneficial and I had read and then various people told me that don't make any major decisions for six months. And because once again, like I said, how my head was just so fogged up that I just didn't feel like I was thinking wisely or clearly. And and you really aren't. You know, when I look back on those months, it's like, oh, my gosh, who was I? It's like you aren't thinking clearly. So don't make any kind of major decisions.   - Char Simpson A co-worker of mine lost her husband and she sold the house maybe the second month after he died. She just couldn't stay in there alone. And she sold the house. And within a year, she went and made an offer to the people to buy the house back and bought the house.   - Liesel Mertes Any words of wisdom to offer for the journey as they look ahead to this next season of life?   - Char Simpson Well, they will get through it. They will it won't be the same, but life will go on, it will be it will still be a great life, just a very different great life than what you pictured. If you thought you were going to be spending most of your life with that person and you will enjoy yours, you'll grow to enjoy yourself if you want to, that you'll really, really enjoy yourself more and grow more as a person if you choose to.   - Char Simpson It's sort of what you decide you want to do. And, you know, do you want to find another guy, you know? And if you do, then I would just say put your whole heart into it, give it a hundred and fifty percent and find another one. But if you want to just grow yourself and not plan on meeting someone else or whatever, then just start living your own life, try to even do some things alone.   - Char Simpson If you've got a lot of girlfriends, just, just you've got to create this new normal. You just got to find what makes you happy. And create this new normal and what makes you happy may be almost very, very different from what it was with your husband, but it's just you. And so you you weren't meant to just be miserable. Life's going to be good. It's going to really be great again. You just got to figure out what makes it great, what do I like to do?   Char Simpson And it's sort of a fun kind of thing in that you can be so, so selfish now and so self-centered. You're totally self-indulgent.   - Char Simpson Just whatever you want to do, you just do you and do it to the max.   MUSICAL TRANSITION   There were so many nuggets of insight from today’s conversation, but here are 3 that I want to highlight as take-aways.   Listen and then act.I loved the story that Char shared about the men that came to rake her leaves.  This sort of attuned, meaningful action comes through careful attention:  identifying a need and then showing up to meet it.  Where are places that you can show up, metaphorical rake-in-hand, to make a difference for someone that is going through a hard time? Your empathy needs to be attuned and adaptive to the person in front of you.Not everyone wants to be asked how they are doing.  Char shared about how this left her crying and suddenly swamped by emotion in places like Target.  Char appreciated a card or a compliment much more than the heavy, “How are you?” Becoming a widow can be full of unexpected moments full of emotion:the first cook-out invite where you are solo, the critter in the drywall that you don’t know how to deal with, the wife that begins to view you with suspicion because you no longer have a husband by your side.  If you are a friend of someone who is living as a widow, ask yourself how you might come alongside your friend with a kind word or an invite to a movie as they go through these ancillary losses.    OUTRO You can find Char on IG at: https://www.instagram.com/travelingblackwidow And you can listen to her daughter, Liz Simpson, on the Handle with Care podcast at: https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/handlewithcare/Final_Liz.mp3

Allergies to gluten are common with the mold genotype, non-coincidently, the same is true for those on the autism spectrum. The mold biotoxin issue is often referred to as chronic inflammatory response syndrome, or CIRS. It inflames all systems and organs of the body including the brain. Typical symptoms for those with the genetic mold defect: • Wake exhausted, never really getting a good nights sleep• Chronic fatigue blamed on stress or possible thyroid issue• Chronic pain• Trouble concentrating• Poor memory• Anxiety• ADD/ADHD• Cold hands and feet• Hormone imbalance• Frequent urination (more than 3-4 times per day).• Chronic headaches• Abdominal pain• Bed wetting• High immunoglobulin E (IgE) triggering asthma• Polyps in nose• Redness on hands and feet• Redness from one cheek over the nose to the other cheek• Blurred vision• Light sensitivity• Red eyes• Dizziness when standing quickly NOTE: Adults commonly have multiple symptoms, but children may only have one symptom present. The most common symptoms in children with the mold genotype are: • Chronic headaches that last more than one to two months• Fatigue for more than two weeks• Chronic abdominal pain• Bed wetting in children older than six years of age• Inattention and ADHD (once treated for biotoxin illness children often no longer need Ritalin).Testing for mononucleosis and H. pylori bacterium are important to rule out with symptoms of chronic fatigue and abdominal cramps, but it is important to remember the mold genotype illness mimics these symptoms as well. Note if either of the child’s parents had bed wetting issues as a child, or even as an adult. Be sure to get your FREE Lyme and mold resource guide.

Silent Killers Pt.1 REJECTION Sunday, May 3, 2020 1 Samuel 16:1, 6-12 Infection occurs when viruses, bacteria, or other microbes enter your body and begin to multiply. Disease occurs when the cells in your body are damaged as a result of infection, and signs and symptoms of an illness appear. An infection is when something from the outside gets on the inside and starts to destroy your body from the inside out. The infection is silently killing you before the symptoms appear. Example/illustration; Building barbed wire fence as a kid, I was always getting cut. Eventually it would scab over and then go away. Sometimes, if the wound was deep enough and it went unaddressed, it could get infected. It may scab over and look ok on the outside (for a time) while still doing damage on the inside. Eventually, symptoms would start too manifest on the outside eluding to what was going on on the inside. Redness, swelling, pus, etc... If still left untreated, this small wound could eventually set up gangrene and cause me to loose a limb or die! The danger of unaddressed wound is it becomes subject to infection! The cut might not kill you, but the infection will! Today I want to talk about a silent killer called rejection! Rejection is something that everybody has to deal with. No mater who you are, your educational background, your cultural background, socioeconomic background, you either have or will experience rejection on some level. Jesus’ life was full of rejection! Rejected by the inn keeper, “No room for you here, sleep in the barn.” Rejected by the religious scholars, “can anything good come from Nazareth.” Rejected by the ones He came to save, “Give us Barabus”! Rejected by Peter, “I do not know Him!”. Rejected by the Father, “My God my God, why have you forsaken me!”. Jesus was despised and rejected so you could be loved and accepted! The word rejection comes from the Latin and means to throw backwards. The enemy wants to use rejection to take you backward and keep you from moving forward in what God has for you. Rejection is a soul wound. A soul wound is a different kind of wound. It is not a physical wound, it is an internal wound. You can be wounded on the inside and look fine on the outside! When we underestimate this type of wound we do not address this type of wound. And unaddressed wound will cause an infection Of the soul. An infection caused by rejection does not manifest in pus, but personalities. This will cause us to mistake infection for identity. That bad attitude… Thats not identity, that’s infection! That hard heartedness, not allowing anyone to get close to you.. Unable to connect on anything more than surface level… That’s not identity, that’s infection! That works mentality that says “if I want something done right I have to do it myself”, that’s infection! That people pleasing tendency that sacrifices your purpose on the alter of some else’s pleasure… That’s infection! That messiah complex that drives me to swoop in and save the day, help people who don’t even want to help themselves… That’s infection! That timidity that will not allow your to use the gifts and talents God gave you because your afraid of failure… Thats not identity, That’s infection! We cannot dismiss dysfunction as identity! Why? Because dismissed dysfunction will destroy destiny! We don’t want to deal with dysfunction because it hurts! No doubt God is the great healer, but sometimes I would prefer a little more anesthetic. An anesthetic is a substance that induces insensitivity to pain. The Lord spoke to me and said; “There is power in pain. Pain will motivate you to change. When you are tired enough of the pain you will deal with the cause. I shielded you from experiencing much of the pain because you couldn’t handle it, but I allowed you to experience a certain amount of pain to persuade you of my faithfulness!” Transition: Rejection is a silent killer! If left unaddressed, it is a wound that will destroy your life from the inside out. Our text and the overall story of our text is full of rejection and the corresponding manifestations. I can not find anyone in the Bible other than Jesus who experienced more rejection that David. But David was not the only one in our text to experience rejection. “Now the Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons.” Samuel was partial to king Saul because God had used him to anoint him King. He was mourning over the rejection of Saul. Sometimes you have to stop looking at the dead things to see the living. Samuel was taking Saul’s rejection personally and it was restricting his movement! Rejection will keep you locked in the past when God wants to move you into your future! Rejection will keep you mourning dead things and cause you to miss new opportunities. Rejection will affect movement. 6 So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him!” 7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Samuel was a seer yet he could not see that Eliab was not Gods chosen king. He was seeing through the eyes of disappointment and rejection. Rejection can distort your vision! When you not seeing clearly you revert back to the last thing God did and how He did it. 1 Samuel 9:2 NKJV [2] And he had a choice and handsome son whose name was Saul. There was not a more handsome person than he among the children of Israel. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people. Saul was the people’s choice based on the peoples criteria, But God said, No Samuel, we are doing it my way this time! Don’t let the rejection of others distort your vision. Some of you are looking at todays spouse through a 20 year old divorce! Some of your are looking at your future calling though the eyes of your past failure! Rejection will affect vision! he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him!” 7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “…I have refused him. Eliab was rejected for a position he wasn’t even seeking! What if for Eliab, this wasn’t a test, but training? What if God was training Eliab to walk about from things he wants, but don’t belong to him? Everything that looks like elevation isn’t my assignment. Sometimes God will take something away from you in one season to teach you to walk away from something in another season! Sometimes rejection is for your own good! Sometimes, God will use rejection to sharpen discernment! 1 Samuel 17:28 Now Eliab his oldest brother heard when he spoke to the men; and Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle.”29 And David said, “What have I done now? Is there not a cause?” 30 Then he turned from him toward another and said the same thing Rejection perceived wrong will be handled wrong! Rejection will cause you to be angry with people who didn't even reject you! Rejected people reject people will often reject others to make themselves feel better about the perception they have of themselves. The hurt of rejection will manifest in your words. Because you question your value, you will use words to diminish the value of others. Rejection will cause you to be dismissed. “What have I done now?” Is an indicator that this was not a new thing but an ongoing attitude from Eliab toward David. 10 Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, “The Lord has not chosen these.” 11 And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.” 6 more sons passed by. I’m sure Samuel was confused by now. “Lord, I thought you told me to ….” This is the first mention of David in the Bible. The first time we hear of David, we hear of rejection. David’s story begins with him being rejected by men, yet appointed by God! He was relegated to the worst task in the family. Exiled to the fields to tend sheep! His own family, the ones closest to him didn't even know there was a King in Him! Just because they see you often doesn’t mean they see you right! He was isolated… Sometimes the isolation of rejection will open the door to the comfort of intimacy! It might be that the people who rejected you in one season God will make stand for you in another season! 12 So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the Lord said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!” 13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. I can imagine how David must have felt when he shows up and see’s whats going on. “Dad, you couldn’t even call me?” “You didn’t think enough of me to even include me.” Rejected by his dad. The one who was supposed to protect him. The one charged with raising him. The one who was supposed to be there for him no matter what! The rejection that hurts the most is from those closest to you! You're going to choose addiction over me, your own son. Most of the time rejection says more about them than it does about you! Many scholars believe that David’s father rejected him because he was the child of another women. David said “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.” It could be that David’s father rejected him because he reminded him of his own failures. There stands David, picked by God to hold the highest position in the known world, yet rejected by his own father. Oily yet injured! Anointed but broken. Talented yet tormented by rejection. Don’t mistake anointing for healing! Many people refuse to deal with the wound of rejection because they think they are good because their anointed. Jesus was despised and rejected so you could be loved and accepted! For some of you, the silent killer of rejection is killing you softly. You look good on the outside, but inside your dying. Don't let the wound of rejection infected the rest of your life. Jesus paid the price, He took your place so that you could take His!

In this video we will be going over the different types of nail discolorations and what they might mean. White or Yellow Nails Air is trapped under the nail causing fungal infection. Can be a symptom of onycholysis, which is where the nail has detached from the skin. Red or Black Nails Caused by trauma to the nail where blood is trapped under the nail and is known as hematona.

Meta Treks: A Star Trek Philosophy Podcast

The Philosophy of Color in Star Trek.   Star Trek: The Original Series is a colorful show, known for its striking set decorations and bold costuming, from the orange highlights on the Enterprise bridge to the primary colors of the Original Series uniforms, including the uniforms of the infamous Redshirts. But what exactly does it mean for a uniform to be red? Is redness a physical property of the uniform itself, or is redness an aspect of subjective mental experience for whomever observes the uniform? Can the uniform's color be reduced to its more basic physical properties or the basic properties of light itself (frequency, wavelength, and so on), or is color a fundamental part of reality, unable to be reduced to other physical properties? And does the property of "redness" exist as an abstract entity (similar to numbers or other abstract objects), or does color exist only in particular form within individual colorful objects like individual red uniforms?   In this episode of Meta Treks, hosts Zachary Fruhling and Mike Morrison discuss the philosophy of color in the Star Trek universe. From the physics of light to the physiology of color perception, and from concrete examples to the ontology of abstract entities, Zachary and Mike examine why physics and physiology struggle to give a fully adequate account of the existence and nature of color.

Did you know that it is possible to diagnose celiac disease with a smile? Damage from gluten starts in the mouth, and today the Gluten Free RN explores the important role dentists can play in identifying undiagnosed celiac disease. She outlines the symptoms of celiac disease that present in the mouth, the follow-up questions dentists should ask when they notice dental enamel defects or aphthous ulcers, and the nature of the tongue as an indicator of overall health. This episode covers how the plastics in orthodontic retainers might contain gluten and what to do if you are accidentally exposed. Nadine also explains the relationship between fat-soluble vitamins and celiac disease, as well as the nutrient deficiencies a potential celiac patient should test for. You’re never fully dressed without a smile, so listen in to understand how to keep your mouth healthy—and prevent the accumulation of complications from celiac disease with a whole food, gluten-free diet!
