I am loving Vitacost.com. Do you see that coconut oil? 54fl oz for 20 bucks! I finally found some use for the smaller Mason jars we had. I put some coconut oil in one to leave upstairs for after I shower, another one with coconut oil and peppermint, and then I will use a jar once I make my ACV toner. I have a discount for 10% off (if you download the app, you get it), so my total really isn’t that bad, including S&H. I seriously want to tell people just let me shop on there for Christmas. I get all my healthy essentials for a cheaper price.

My mental health hasn’t been the greatest lately. I am distancing myself from people, for the better. Until I can get into a levelheaded space again. It’s become a nightly routine to drink spearmint tea while watching Gilmore Girls until I sleep.

Four Years

brightiris:

When it comes to death, many of us are aware it’s the cycle of life. Whether we realize early in our years, or later on. Despite the fact many loved ones were lost throughout the years, not one made such an impact as my grandmother’s passing did. It will be four years since she passed come November twenty-third. I write a post for her each year, so people can remember the brilliant woman she was, and how many lives she touched. Although every one of us knows she will never be forgotten. You see, my grandmother was incredible human being. Warmth, love, and passionate are just three words that describe her. I can list many more. How she just wanted everyone to be peaceful with one another, that she was a spectacular cook and baker, and that she would do anything for everyone. She was selfless, loving, devoted. She was the woman that I looked up to, and will forever. Anyone that knows our connection would know that losing my grandmother reshaped my life. When you have to say the final goodbye, it’s heartbreaking, but shows the strength we all have inside of us. Not the type of goodbye when you know that you’ll see each other soon, or you’ll chat for a few minutes on the phone during the day. It’s the final goodbye when you have to walk away, knowing that you will never be in front of that person again, to hear their laugh, or hear them speak. It’s the goodbye that you dread, but know you have to face one day. It’s those final moments when the memories flash through your mind, and you lock them up because those are all that you shared. Memories will never live up to her presence. I can finally admit that I changed once I kissed her goodbye. She was known as The Little Old Italian Lady on the Hill, or Toni Bologna (thanks to Angela nicknaming her that many years ago!), she was known for her scrumptious recipes. She was known as Mother, Wife, Grandmother, Sister, and Friend. She was known for her presence that brightened a room. I do not know anyone else who could bring such laughter, significance, and forever memories to gatherings. A Month before she went into the hospital, she told me that when the time came, I needed to be strong, that I needed to just keep carrying on without her, but know she is always on this journey of life with me. I know she is, more so in the past few months. So, here is to celebrating a wonderful woman’s memory, and here is to four years going on strong.

I have been struggling with my mental health. I fully know why, because of what is coming up next month. So here is my way of releasing it all, in a good way.

Thank you! I’ll pick some up tomorrow at the pharmacy. I need something to ease this.

Can Celexa cause me to be lightheaded and have a severe headache constantly? After two months on it? When I say lightheaded, I mean it doesn’t even stop when I sit down and put my head down. My headache hasn’t eased with ibuprofen, either. I tried sleeping longer, getting food in my system, caffeine in case it were a migraine, a hot shower. Not a damn thing is helping.

I knocked on the wall, pretending someone was at the door. Gracie looked in the direction of the foyer, looked at me wide eyed, and jumped behind me with her head pushed into the couch.

I woke up earlier this morning lightheaded, so I went back to sleep. Again, I woke up lightheaded, so decided to sleep a little longer. Third time waking up, I was still lightheaded. I carefully took a hot shower and laid down. I ate a little bit, drank a cup of coffee. Still not feeling well. Between being lightheaded, a severe headache, and stiff neck, I do not know what to do next. I took ibuprofen, but it didn’t help. I know my doctor said if this happens, go to the ER, but I do not want my dad leaving work early, or to sit in the ER.

Organic Spearmint Tea & $10 Coupon Off $30 Purchase

I purchased the Tazo ‘Zen’ tea which didn’t taste terrible, but I wasn’t keen on the lemongrass flavor. So while shopping this past week, I needed to pick up a new tea that had spearmint because it helps tremendously with my hirsutism. I found Tazo’s ‘Cocoa mint mate’, which is flavored with peppermint, spearmint, yerba mate, and cocoa peels. It’s a savory-sweet blend that is quite tasty, but I have wanted just plain spearmint tea for months now without any luck at finding it locally.

Well, tonight I went on Vitacost to purchase some Bragg’s ACV, and found an organic spearmint tea that is naturally caffeine free, too. It’s around $4 for 16 tea bags. It’s just what i was looking for, so I added it to my order. It’s a great site that has healthy living products for cheaper prices, affordable shipping and handling, a range of products from gluten-free to vegan, and it’s worthy of checking out.
