I finally got my nose pierced and I’m glad I did it. Before you look at this video, just know that I was afraid lolol. I do not like anything that resembles a needle. It might as well have been a sword going through my nose. Lol. I honestly think I reverted back to a 3rd grader while getting this piercing. But enough of that. You’ll get the picture when you watch the video


So, I went to get my nose pierced. I was so excited. Actually my husband treated me to a nose piercing on one of our monthly dates. So after getting the piercing things were looking pretty good. My nose was a little sore but that was pretty much it. Sleeping with a nose piercing proved different for me. It seemed like every time I turned around, I was hitting my nose with my arm or hand. What are the odds of this happening? Well a few days of this first fight with my nose, I started to notice a bump near my piercing. It started getting bigger and bigger. I couldnt take it anymore so I started looking at videos on how to get rid of this ugly bump. I tried the sea salt and hot water, peroxide and I even used ear piercing solution. Nothing worked !!! Oneday I decided to try alcohol on a cotton q-tip and what do you know……..it felt like a miracle. I started to see the bump disappear extremely fast. Within 2days, it was gone. Here’s the how to video https://youtu.be/SAIIU7F5AMQ


First, let me start by saying that there are many different ways that one can ground him or herself.

As a matter of fact, my last post “A surprising benefit of a hot/cold shower ” talks about it.

Other ways are standing straight and simply place one hand over your crown chakra (A post on that later) or simply place one hand on the top of your head for 60 secs and imagine yourself being push into the ground like this

Well sort of like this……lol

You can also place your bare feet or hands directly in the dirt like this

Grounding reconnects you to the earth and your spirtual self to your physical self. Its important to make sure you are grounded especially if you are doing energy work such as reiki or any type of healing, intuitive work or if your an empath.

  • Grounding yourself minimizes inflammation in the body.
  • Regulates heart rate.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Increases blood flow.
  • Regulate stress hormones.
  • Absorbs negative energy.
  • Helps you to become more balanced. Whichever method you choose, I’m sure it will work for you. Like the old folks use to say…….dont knock it until you’ve tried itūüėė.
  • until then……

Do you really know?

Lets take a moment to think about it in a deeper sense.

So you want to start a business right? But you haven’t because of “fear”. Can you physically see fear? Can you physically touch it? Does it have a smell? A taste? Can you hear it? Those are all 5 of our senses yet, we are unable to use these senses to describe what fear is.   Which is why I ask the question. What the hell is “fear”? To me the word “fear” represents a symbol. What is a symbol? Something that represents something else ‚Äď in essence. The word symbolic is defined as : ‚ÄúThe practice of representing things by means of significance to objects, events or relationships. ‚ÄĚ what I mean by this is when you make it up in your mind that you want to start a business then the symbolism of fear start to show up, ask yourself why is fear showing up whenever I think of starting a business. Start digging deep into your psyche. Ask yourself what part of starting a business am I most fearful ūüė® of? Lets say, your answer was the financial part of the business is what makes you think of fear. Ok. Now we are getting somewhere. Lets tackle the business issue. You can take business classes, financial classes, or you can hire someone in that field to handle the aspect of the business for you. Pay close attention to the way they do it and slowly learn it for yourself. Have you ever heard someone talking about ants or mosquitos crawling or saw alot of damn ants on tv and you started scratching your own arm or slapping your neck like it was actually crawling on you? Or remember when you were younger, imagining that your bed was some kind of boat and you were “afraid ūüė®” to put your feet on the floor because we were somehow convinced that it was water full of sharks and they would bite our feet off. Remember that, you damn pyschos!!! Smh lol ūüėÜ Listen linda. Linda linda linda , listen. The moral to this story is “fear” is a pretend emotion.  Lol Get out your own heads and do the work to start that damn business.

Trichotillosis- 50 ways to stop pulling your hair


50 Ways to Stop Pulling Your Hair

Originally published on the TLCTRICHSUPPORT email group.

As many  of you know I am over 9 weeks pull free. I started to come up with a list of  ideas on how to stop pulling your hair for a article im writing. I am going to  list them below.

50 ways to stop pulling your hair
*   = I have tried these methods.       ** = These tips have helped me the most.

  • Wear a bandana to bed. *
  • Make a sticker chart. Everyday that you go without pulling add a¬† sticker. Hang this sticker chart in a room where you pull the most.**
  • Reward yourself after several days (or hours) of being pull free.*
  • Be patient with yourself.*
  • Join a support group.*
  • Talk to another person with Trichotillomania.*
  • Wet down your hair. This will make it really hard to pull out your¬† hair since it will be slippery.*
  • Learn what your body needs instead of pulling. Is your body tired,¬† hungry, sleepy, excited, etc? Then tell yourself out loud what you need¬†¬† and go do it.**
  • Get a membership with TLC
  • Stimulate your senses. Many of us that pull like the sensation¬† that comes with it. Instead of pulling do other things to stimulate these such¬† as washing your hair, brushing your lips on dental floss or string (if you rub¬† the hair on your lips), and massaging your scalp.*
  • Avoid caffeine right before bed. Often bed time is a time when a¬† lot of people pull. By using caffeine you keep yourself up longer and it¬† heightens anxiety.*
  • Buy a fidget toy.*
  • Find other things to do with your hands such as knitting,¬† crocheting, or cross stitch. *
  • Wear a hoodie to bed as a barrier to pulling. *
  • Go see a psychologist that performs cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Try hypnotherapy *
  • Make small reasonable goals. Such as I will not pull for the next¬† three hours. Then keep increasing your time.
  • Look at your hair in the mirror everyday with your hands behind¬† your back. Stare into the mirror until the anxiety to pull has lessened. This¬† is called exposure therapy and it does work!¬† **
  • Look in the mirror every day to see how much its grown. Be proud¬† of your hard work. **
  • Brush your hair instead of pulling*
  • Have a positive attitude**
  • If you pull some hair do not beat yourself up about it, just try¬† again.
  • Use the saying “every hair belongs on my head” and¬† repeat this over and over until the urge to pull ceases.*
  • Make yourself busy, too much down time can be dangerous.*
  • Help others, which in turn will help you.**
  • Read everything you can on the internet about trichotillomania and¬† the treatment plans to deal with it.*
  • Watch shows and documentaries about trichotillomania to learn new¬† techniques.*
  • Wear perfume on your hands so that you will realize when your hand¬† is going up to pull out your hair.
  • Name the hairs you want to pull out. It sounds silly but for some¬† it works.
  • Spend less time in the areas of your house that you pull in.*
  • Keep a journal of your feelings.*
  • Find a hair that is laying around your house and stare at it¬† daily. For many people the sight of hair can trigger hair pulling. By staring¬† at a piece of hair everyday you are exposing yourself to the anxiety that¬† follows. This will eventually cause the anxiety to lessen.*
  • Also read textbooks about the anatomy of hair. This does the same¬† thing as #32
  • Play with silly putty *
  • Take a long bath to ease the anxiety.**
  • Wear a wig the entire day, until you go to bed. Then put on a¬† bandana. ( Only use this the first two weeks or so, then trust yourself enough¬† to take it off)*
  • Take good care of your hair. Appreciating the hair you have will¬† provide you with the courage you need to grow more. This means you should brush¬† your hair daily, wash it at least once a day if possible, and respect that it¬† belongs on your head.*
  • Put your tweezers in a cabinet until you need them for grooming,¬† not Trichotillomania. If you use tweezers a lot you may need to throw them out¬† and only buy new ones when you have your Trichotillomania under control.*
  • Imagine your life without Trichotillomania and with hair.**
  • Place lotion or gel on your hands so it’s hard to grasp the hair¬† you want to pull.
  • Place notes that say “NO” or inspirational sayings about¬† stopping hair pulling in places where you normally pull.
  • Wear a rubber band around your wrist to snap every time you want¬† to pull.
  • Wear a bead bracelet to fidget¬† with.
  • Lift weights. Your arms will be too tired to want to pull.
  • Pet an animal. Sometimes just running your hands through a pet’s¬† fur can stimulate the same sensation that you need in order to ease anxiety.*
  • Meditate.
  • Take pictures of your bald spots and post them where you usually¬† pull. When seeing these pictures you will not want to pull since bald spots are¬† frightening.
  • Tell your friends and family to tell you to stop if they see you¬† pulling. *
  • Spread the word about Trichotillomania. Sometimes telling other¬† people about our condition helps us¬† want¬† to change it. *
  • Last but not least learn to love yourself. Only then¬† can you start to heal. **
