My chronic illness and Last Reviews for the JouwBox edition 10

Hi There..... Are you a cat lover..... Did you know that every September is Happy Cat Month?  ๐Ÿ˜

I am a huge cat lover..... They are so darn cuddly and cute..... It’s actually very hard for me, I cannot keep one at the moment..... Well, it’s a long story actually..... We moved 4 years ago to an apartment due to my chronic illness..... My cartilage is of very poor quality….. As a result, it is breaking down bit by bit all over my body ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Momentarily, I already have a hip and knee prosthesis on my right side….. But my left knee is giving me more and more problems every day now too….. Wish I could say that this was my only problem….. The disks in my back spine are slowly degenerating too….. And those of my neck were more than happy to join in on the fun ๐Ÿ˜œ

Ooh no, I still haven’t finished….. My shoulders are becoming more blocked and more painful….. Probably a result of walking on crutches a lot in the last few years….. And then there are my wrists and thumbs pains….. Mostly because of some abnormal bone depositions….. I have those in different places all over my body….. I suppose they also wanted to join in on the fun ๐Ÿ˜œ

Can you imagine that some people envy me….. Just because I am not working anymore ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

What they don’t see is how many painkillers I have to take in daily…… They get me through an average day….. But there are limits to what my body can do….. And if I cross those limits, I will have to pay for it….. The result is that I have to cope with 2 or 3 days of severe pain….. Sometimes I even can’t straighten my back anymore….. And then I haven’t told you about my muscles yet….. They are fed-up with it and overreact….. Resulting in blockages ๐Ÿ˜ข

You may call me crazy, but I really don’t get what they are jealous of ๐Ÿ˜ต

Great..... Feels good getting that off my chest 

Let's get back to more fun things..... Like reviewing..... I think it's fun ๐Ÿ˜

There were still 2 things in my Jouwbox left that I haven't told you about..... If you did not see the previous ones..... Here is a link to them

https://seadbeady.blogspot.com/2020/09/tips-on-some-handy-products-for.html

The first one still on my list is the Mudmasky Leave-me-on Autumn mask..... What does their website say about this mask..... It's a gel-based and oil-free ultra calming formula..... It rebalances and rehydrates your skin after a hot summer.....The mask reduces sunspots to a minimum after using daily after 2 till 3 weeks..... Without the use of popular bleaching chemicals like hydroquinone..... Fragrance-free


Sounds pretty cool..... Don't you agree ๐Ÿ˜‰

As the name already suggests you can just put it on and leave it..... Still, I really have to read it twice to believe..... As the French say 'Simple come Bonjour' (translated as simple as saying hello)..... No hassle with rinsing it off afterward..... As I was rubbing it in it became rather sticky for a few seconds but that feeling disappeared..... And now my skin is almost as soft as a baby skin..... Did you know that your skin loses a lot of moisture in the summertime..... Especially in a hot summer like we had this year..... It may seem pretty expensive but you don't need much..... So the tube will last for a long time.....To me, this mask is the perfect solution..... As Maira Kalman said 'I truly believe there's always a solution to every problem ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The last product to review is the Okinawa minerals from the Health Factory..... What does their website say about these minerals..... They are the basic minerals from nature..... These minerals consist of calcium and magnesium as in the natural ratio of our body of 2 to 1..... They are unique in the sense that they contain 76 essential and ionic minerals and trace elements..... The Health Factory pack their products in high-quality dark violet glass, which only transmits infrared and ultraviolet UVA light.... Resulting in a much longer shelf life and vitalizing..... Following is a list of reasons why everyone should use these minerals

Okinawa minerals have a proven absorbability of 80% within 20 minutes..... A multivitamin contains all vitamins, but not all minerals and trace elements. Therefore, use the minerals daily as a multimineral..... the lack of minerals and trace elements in the farmland was already identified and reported by the US Senate in 1936. Their advice for every American was therefore to replenish minerals and trace elements daily. Eighty years later, it is still not generally known how big the shortages are in the soil, in food, crops, and therefore in humans..... Behavioral problems, learning difficulties, psychological complaints, and disorders are increasingly common and are partly caused by mineral and trace element deficiencies. Deficiencies can already arise in the womb..... It is the purest and most mineral and trace supplement, sourced from Sango Coral from Okinawa, an island near Japan. It is the only coral, of the 2.500 species in the world, whose composition is almost identical to that of human bone. Surgeons around the world even use this coral for bone grafts..... Water to which Okinawa minerals have been added has a pH value of 10 and is, therefore, more deacidifying than fruit and vegetables.


That is quite an extensive list..... Don't you agree ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

But I can understand why they want to give this much information..... Especially given the fact that most people don't realize that they might be lacking these minerals..... I can't say for sure that I do or don't need them..... I would dare to think not because I have been taking supplements twice a day since my Gastric Bypass..... But I did try them out in a glass of water one day and in a glass of fruit juice the other day..... Here is a picture from my water experiment ๐Ÿ˜‹


Almost looked a bit like milk..... Weirdly it hardly has any taste..... I only tasted the graininess from the substance..... Solving it in fruit juice worked better for me..... It solves well and the fruit juice didn't taste any different as far as I could tell..... I am not that much of a fan of Yoghurt but I am thinking that could work even better.....  ๐Ÿ˜

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day

Ook echt katten liefhebbers hier. Ik heb de jongens net verteld dat het deze maand kat maand is. Zij helemaal happy!

  10. Ah I'm sorry to hear you're in so much pain all the time. I can't imagine what it is like having your body break down slowly (well I guess it happens to all of us really slowly, but no where near as dramatically as what you are experiencing). By the way do you know if the products from your unboxing are vegan and cruelty-free? I'm sure you always check these things as you sound like a big animal lover ๐Ÿ’š

    Aside from that... I had no clue September was cat month. That’s so cool. I love cats too. I don’t have any at the moment after my last kitty passed due to cancer about 3 years ago.

    I really like that autumn mask. It sounds like it would be great for when we are running heaters and our skin starts drying out a bit.

  28. Ik ben ook dol op mijn katten, wij hebben altijd wel huisdieren gehad. Ik zeg altijd dat ik de hoofdprijs win in een loterij dan wil ik een vrijstaand huisje in het bos met heel veel plek voor mijn huisdieren. Dan adopteer ik nog meer katten maar ook honden. Dieren die nog een warm mandje zoeken, dus uit een asiel of uit het buitenland. Chronische pijn is verschrikkelijk en ook voor mij iedere dag een struggle. Momenteel doet de huisarts en apotheek heel moeilijk over mijn zware pijnstillers die ik al een jaar of 20 slik. Dat ze verslavend zijn weet ik allang maar hoe kom je anders de dag door?
    Groetjes van iemand die ook zo baalt van die pijn en ook te vaak (=altijd) thuiszit en veel liever leuke dingen zou ondernemen.
